Patrons visiting the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre next weekend will be in for a special treat, when the Barbados Government Information Service hosts Love, Poetry and Song: The Remix at the Home Expo 2012 Barbados: Smart Living.
The Remix, which will be held on Sunday, September 23, at 6:30 p.m. – the third and final day of the expo – will see local talent come together in dance, spoken word and song to raise awareness, funds and contributions for the HIV Food Bank.
Acts will include DJ Simmons, who will host the event, and Zingha; Higher Level; Christal Austin; Wesu Wallace; Divine Harmony; and the band NexCyx.?? Patrons will also have an opportunity to be a part of the show by signing up for the open mic session, which will offer limited participation.
Persons are encouraged to contribute food items and toiletries to the HIV Food Bank bins, which will be placed throughout the venue.?? In addition, one dollar from each patron’s admission on Sunday will be donated to the cause.
The Remix is the sister act to the Love, Poetry and Song event which was held in February this year.?? That event, which raised more than $5,000 and numerous barrels of goods, will see a second instalment in February 2013.
