Mary’s coming – NationNews Barbados — nationnews.com

Social Share

Guess who is coming to Barbados?
None other than Mary! Yes it’s true the megahit and well loved play, which has become an unrivalled benchmark of Trinidad and Tobago theatre, is coming to Barbados!
Mary Could Dance is coming to Barbados for the first and only time in 2010 for three exclusive nights at the Frank Collymore Hall.
The critically acclaimed and box office success that is  Mary Could Dance will be on for three nights only: tonight, tomorrow and Sunday at the Frank Collymore Hall.
The play, which is considered among the best ever of  regional theatre, has been running since 1998, and has had close to 200 performances throughout Trinidad and Tobago, as well as Grenada, St Vincent, St Lucia and Ireland.
It has been sold out wherever it has been performed – and to standing ovations. Rights to do the play have also been sought by theatre companies in Jamaica, the United States and England.
Mary Could Dance currently holds the Trinidad and Tobago national record for the most Cacique Theatre Awards ever won by a single production, sweeping the awards and winning ten of the 15 that were up for grabs.
It is also in advanced stages to be produced as a major motion picture.
Barbados now has a chance to laugh and experience a roller coaster of emotional excitement when they see this warm and sometimes scandalous comedy. The story unfolds when three dancers/prostitutes face the return of one of their group’s first love back from living for 11 years in the United States.
Mary Could武汉光伏发电 Dance features everything from exotic dancing, to catfights, to romance, to the antics of the scandalous pimp/bar owner Mule. The No.1  play of Trinidad and Tobago will take audiences on a journey it will never forget.
The play was written by Richard Ragoobarsingh and directed by Raymond Choo Kong, and features Penelope Spencer, Cecilia Salazar, Richard Ragoobarsingh, Glenn Davis, Dionne McNicol and Roger Dickie. (PR)

Shelly’s Karaoke queen – NationNews Barbados — nationnews.com

Social Share

Shelly Chase was last Sunday night crowned queen of karaoke in the inaugural Lime Barbados Karaoke 2010 Contest.
In her first appearance, she sang I Believe In You And Me, made popular by Etta James.
In her second appearance, she did Listen (a Beyonce composition) and her final song was I’m Telling You by Jennifer Hudson.
For her efforts, the first time competitor, who defeated several seasoned campaigners, took home the first prize of $5 000, along with a professional recording contract from Pyramid Entertainment, a 32-inch flat screen television, and the opportunity to represent Barbados in the upcoming Caribbean Karaoke Competition.
Second was Kevin Forde, who fell down a bit in his first song One in  A Million, but came back strong in his final two deliveries.
Mary Clarke was third, probably handicapped by a flu bug. But she gave sterling performances in her renditions of The Wedding Song, Bridge Over Troubled Waters and You’re The Best Thing, made popular by Gladys Knight The Pips.
Speaking backstage after her win, an elated but exhausted Chase said that it was her first time in such a competition and she was extremely happy to have won.
“Right now, I feel ecstatic! I did not come here to just compete, but to win despite the many challenges I faced along the way.”
Chase said she expected stiff competition from Mary Clarke, whom she singled out as the person she feared the most.
“Even although the majority of the other competitors were really good, I felt Mary was the one I had to beat.”
 The Husbands, St James resident said she was planning to use some of her winnings to advance her singing career.
“I want to move to the next level. My aim is to make singing a career so things like voice training, diction, [and] stage performance will be high on my list of priorities to help me reach a higher level.”
Manager of Pyramid Entertainment Inc. and organiser of the show, Tony Hoyos, said he was extremely happy with the quality of the show and the support fr武汉光伏发电om the public.
“We did have a few hitches along the way as would be expected with a show of this magnitude, but overall it was a total success. Plans are already on the drawing board to make next year’s event even bigger and better.
“One of the things we will change for next year’s show will be the number of qualifying rounds,” Hoyos said.
“The show started on April 16 and ended with [Sunday night’s] final after 20 qualifying rounds. Five months is way too much, and we are proposing to shorten the competition over a two-month period while increasing the number of prizes.”

Rihanna’s Man Down video under fire – NationNews Barbados — nationnews.com

Social Share

Los Angeles (CNN) The music video for Rihanna s newest single, Man Down is an inexcusable, shock-only, shoot-and-kill theme song that should not be aired on television, according to a group that campaigns against violence on TV.
Rihanna defended her video today with a posting on her Twitter account: U武汉光伏发电 can t hide your kids from society, or they ll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD!
The music industry isn t exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US, she tweeted.
The hip-hop singer, who was herself a victim of a beating by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, portrays a woman who guns down a man who sexually assaulted her.
The video, which premiered on the BET cable channel Tuesday, gives retaliation in the form of premeditated murder the imprimatur of acceptability, the Parents Television Council said in a news release.
The founder of the council s Enough is Enough anti-violence campaign called the video a clear violation of BET s own programming guidelines.
I join with the Parents Television Council and Industry Ears in calling on Viacom executives to immediately pull the video from programs that are targeted to youth and teenagers, Pastor Delman Coates wrote in Wednesday s news release.
Industry Ears describes itself on its website as a nonpartisan think tank aimed at addressing and finding solutions to disparities in media that negatively impact individuals and communities.
BET, which is a subsidiary of Viacom, issued a statement Thursday afternoon saying the video complied with a comprehensive set of standards and guidelines that are applied to all of our content.
At the same time, it is clear that the Man Down video has sparked a passionate dialogue and we will continue this conversation with our audience tonight on 106 Park.’
Rihanna and her representatives did not immediately respond to CNN requests for comment.
The artist did use Twitter messages Wednesday and Thursday to thank her fans for the amazing response and to defend her video.
I love you guys, and I love that u GOT IT!!! Rihanna tweeted Wednesday.
We re strong innocent fun flirtatious vulnerable, and sometimes our innocence can cause us to be naive! We always think it could NEVER be us, but in reality, it can happen to ANY of us! she wrote.
She launched a series of tweets again after the controversy spread in media reports Thursday:
I m a 23 year old rockstar with NO KIDS! What s up with everybody wantin me to be a parent? I m just a girl, I can only be your/our voice!
Cuz we all know how difficult/embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially our parents!
And this is why! Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can t hide your kids from society, or they ll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD!
The music industry isn t exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they dont turn out like US.
The video opens with Rihanna using a small revolver to shoot a man on a street. The viewers see a graphic view of the man lying dead in the street with a pool of blood streaming near his head. It then flashes back to the previous day, when the shooter was sexually attacked.
What started out as a simple altercation turns into a real sticky situation, Rihanna sings.
Makes me want to cry, because I didn t mean to hurt him, could ve been somebody s son, the song says. Oh, mama, I just shot a man down
Why did I pull the trigger? she sings. Now I am a criminal.

R&B singer Vesta dies – NationNews Barbados — nationnews.com

Social Share

Vesta Williams, the 80 s diva known for her powerful voice, was found dead in her California hotel room last night, according to reports. Though news sources have reported the singer was 48 years old, Williams can be seen in a 2010 interview saying she was 53.
Williams scored a big hit with Congratulations, a song about a woman who is distraught upon learning that her former lover is getting married. Congratulations, with its vocal acrobatics and dramatic story, became a talent show staple.
Jackeé Harry, the television actress, tweeted her condolences about the singer s passing.
just received truly devastating news: R B great, and my friend of many yrs, Vesta Williams (@vesta4u), has passed away. #RIPVesta
In the 1990s, Williams made headlines for her dramatic weight loss. She told Ebony that she started to rapidly gain weight when her singing career began to falter. Williams, who was 5-foot-3, eventually reached a size 26. She said her size was the reason she lost her recording contract.
When I lost my record deal and my phone wasn t ringing, I realized that I had to reassess who Vesta was and figure out what was going wrong, she said. I knew it wasn t my singing ability. So it had to be that I was expendable because I didn t have the right look.
The singer went on to lose 100 lbs, and got down down to a size 6, while finding something of a second career as a songwriter and session singer.
In recent years, Williams had become an advocate for the prevention of childhood obesity and juvenile diabetes.

Cavalcade bang on – NationNews Barbados — nationnews.com

Social Share

HUNDREDS WHO TURNED OUT for the first Cavalcade – Youth Invasion 1 – should not have been disappointed with the level and quality of the entertainment generally coming from the stage at Briar Hall, Christ Church, Saturday.
The National Cultural Foundation (NCF), producers of the show, can take credit for running a tight ship and selecting a cross section of performers who catered to varying tastes. There was drama, dance, masquerading, modelling, singing, drumming and deejaying.
The event also had a spiritual element – with an opening prayer – for those who felt a need for divine intervention.
Emcee Darrio Prescod carried the show smoothly, connecting well with his audience.
It was a positive sign, seeing young Barbadians, both male and female, converging on a space with one aim in mind: to enjoy themselves.

Lights on for Divali – NationNews Barbados — nationnews.com

Social Share 武汉光伏发电

The Trinidad and Tobago Association of Barbados Inc. (TTAB) observed the religious Hindu festival of Divali with a symbolic lighting ceremony at the Lanterns at Hastings last weekend.
Divali is a five day religious festival that represents the start of the Hindu New Year. It honours the victory of good over evil, and brightness over darkness.
Celebrated as the ‘Festival of Lights’ in India, it is one of the major and most celebrated Hindu festivals; regionally it is a national holiday in the multi-cultural society of Trinidad and Tobago.
Public Relations Officer of the TTAB, Richard Rollocks noted that: “Divali is one of the most anticipated events in Trinidad Tobago and we in TTAB felt it was a great idea to acknowledge this religious period and share it with Trinbagonians living in Barbados as well as to share our rich culture with the Barbadian public.”
“In Trinidad, the Divali is marked by prayers, feasts and the lighting of thousands of deyas (small clay pots filled with oil in which a wick is immersed and lit) all over the country.
“We were very pleased with the response from Barbadians visiting the mall. We used the event to share general information about Divali and to distribute sweets which are synonymous with the festival,” Rollocks said.
