There was nothing sweeter!
Last Saturday night, the sweet sounds of music filled the Frank Collymore Hall for the sixth edition of the Honey Jam showcase.
It was a night of 14 exciting performances, showcasing the array of talent from within these 166 square miles. The ladies were simply fantastic. And the youngest ones within the group surely stood out, showing there is hope for the music industry’s future on the island.
Fazeena Bassaet, just 13 years old but with a powerful voice, brought the house down and some audience members to their feet with her rendition of Fight Song. Her voice was smooth as silk and she was confident on stage.
Therez Lambert, a student of the Frederick Smith Secondary School, also displayed her excellent vocal ability in a rendition of Rihanna’s What Now. Therez is no stranger to the stage as she is already a NIFCA award winner.
Soca artiste, Faith Callender, showed her versatility, giving a different but thrilling rendition of One Dance and You Needed Me.
Gospel singer, Sirrah, is always a joy to listen to and watch. She performed a song, Butterfly, from her debut album. The audience loved it.
Staying in the same genre, Quissa Baptiste also took the audience to church with her rendition of His Eye Is on the Sparrow.
Leigh, also no stranger to the Honey Jam stage, is coming out her shell more and more. She gave an awesome rendition of Put Your Records On.
The crowd also enjoyed Honey Jam alumni Larix, Alania, Tionne and Nicova who performed Rise Up.
Guest performer, Fridaee, from Honey Jam Canada, was impressive with an original piece entitled Break Out.
Overall, all the ladies should be commended for an excellent job.
Producer, Ebonnie Rowe, should take a bow for her continued great work with the ladies year after year. This year, they received sound words of wisdom from Grammy award winning songwriter, Angela Hunte. She shared many stories with the ladies, encouraging them along the way.
