There were no unhappy children at the West Terrace Primary School this morning as students sang, danced and cheered at the popular selections played by the Music Angels.
The versatile trio, consisting of Dwayne Gill, Wesley Morris and Joshua Holder, performed such songs as ‘Hovanna’, ‘Despacito’, ‘Hotline Bling’, ‘Boat Ride’, ‘Sorry’ and ‘Shape of You’.
Director of the group Crystal Barker said the company decided to perform at the school to show students what they could become if they were dedicated to their musical training.
“I have the Music Angels programmes in a few primary schools across the island and I wanted the children to see what the end result could be [when they focus on the work from childhood],” Barker said.
“In 2014, I decided to resign after 13 years in the teaching service and [formed] Music Angels formally. I was doing lessons here and there but I wanted to actually have a music school,” she said.
Musical Officer at the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) Ronald Davis said the NCF should be working closely with Music Angels since it aligns with what the NCF wants to achieve moving forward.
“The NCF would certainly like to see [this] happen. You are going to see more things happening at West Terrace Primary School as the NCF will certainly be working on this venture” Davis said. (LG)
