It was "a southern kaleidoscope" of talent at the Community Independence Celebrations Secretariat’s Southern Zone Parish Talent Show, which was held last Saturday at Parkinson Memorial Secondary School. ??The packed audience was treated to a variety of performances from the parish talent participants, guest acts and also giveaways of gift hampers from the sponsor, Supercentre.
Whilst the judges deliberated, the large crowd was treated to performances from the guest artistes, including Shawn "Shawn Bag" Burke, Pinelands Creative Workshop, including its Folk Chorale, Khadija Moseley and an original R & B piece from Reann Beckles.
The eventual winners, who will represent their parishes at the Parish Talent Segment of the Spirit of the Nation Show on November 19, include from Christ Church, Andrea Rollins in poetry, from St. Michael, SKF Steelsounds & Pan Institute with an instrumental piece; and from St Philip, Cherish Maynard in song with a piece entitled "My Cry".
The parish talent shows continue this Saturday, September 17, at Queen’s College at 5:30 p.m. with performances from participants from St. Lucy, St Peter, St. Andrew and St. James.
