Last Saturday night at the Sea Rocks Dome it was all about ‘Inspire, Infuse and Ignite’ as members of Do Good Music, otherwise known as DGM, came together to culminate the Valentine’s Season of Love in fine style.
Kicking off the night’s performances, vocalists Jamal Slocombe and Cherece Richards lived up to their billing as they set about to inspire members of the modest crowd with their performances of a number of groovy gospel renditions.
It only took a few moments for Richards to fully energize the crowd with her electric rendition of I Command My Hands and I Give You Thanks; her command of the stage was only surpassed by her obvious vocal ability.
However, Slocombe was not to be outdone. He sang a heartfelt version of the age-old hymn Give Thanks. Finishing off the set, the vocalists treated the audience to a funk version of Jesus Loves Me This I Know which was equally well received.
Grenadian singer Leigh Philips, who is known for her fusions of jazz and R&B, has been making a name for herself on the local music circuit for quite some time now. It was therefore no surprise that she put down what was undoubtedly a solid performance during her first appearance of the night in which she delivered three songs from her first EP entitled, Leigh; the EP, which is currently available on most major music streaming platforms.
During the event, an open mic session was thrown into the mix, which gave members of the audience a chance to show off their own vocal abilities. However, the standout performance for this session actually came from the show’s MC Sunrokk after he accepted a challenge from the audience for him to come up with a freestyle rap, based on the random words snuffleupagus, crab and horn. To say his performance was audacious is an understatement!
The Infuse section of the night delivered a touch of class to the evening’s proceedings. Kweku Jelani, who is known for his outstanding skills on the saxophone, showed off his vocal prowess with sterling renditions of Autumn Leaves and There For You.
Equally enthralling was female vocalist Maiella Best who let loose on the stage during a sultry performance of Loving You.
Then it was time for Philips to make her return to the stage for the Ignite session, which brought the show to a close with a series of songs that had members of the crowd grooving along to the infectious beat.
Overall, it was a great evening enjoyed by all and we look forward to seeing what else DGM has in store for us at future events.
