"Emrand Henry releases song for Haiti"


Emrand Henry, one of St Lucia’s top artistes has just released a new single titled “Shaken but not Broken” as his contribution to mark the greatest devastating earthquake to hit the Caribbean in 200 years.

Emrand, just coming back from his latest tour of St Maarten and Barbados was touched by the many images of the injured and dying Haitians struggling to be pulled out from under the rubble of the numerous buildings that were destroyed in Port-au-Prince. The unsightly reports of so many dead bodies and thirst and starvation all around, as people lost their families and homes in the wake of this destruction, inspired him to write this song and quickly go to the studios of Fresh Fire Productions in Babonneau with producer Germaine Sealy to lay down this track.

This is the first song written about this tragedy coming out of St Lucia and will touch the hearts of many. This song is of hope for a brighter future for the people of Haiti who are our Caribbean brothers and sisters.

“Shaken but not Broken” will be distributed electronically on popular websites and can be found on www.myspace.com/emrandhenry. - St.Lucia Star Newspaper

Carifests Gospel concert exceeds expectations
at 2:52 PM Posted by RazMami
Look like this was one of the best Carifesta shows so far...

The Guyana National Stadium was on Thursday night transformed into a big church, as thousands of people poured into the ground to be part of the much-anticipated Carifesta Gospel Celebration.

Headlined by four of the region’s leading gospel artistes in Nicole Ballosingh from Trinidad and Tobago, St Lucian Emrand Henry, Mr Lynx the from Bahamas and Jamaican Prodigal Son, the show proved to be an enjoyable experience for those in attendance. Throughout the concert, members of the massive crowd sang, jumped, screamed, danced and waved flags and rags as they made no bones about having fun.

Nicole Ballosingh was the first of the overseas artistes to perform. Always a crowd favourite whenever she performs in Guyana, she sent the crowd into frenzy. After her time on stage, the singer said that she always enjoyed performing in Guyana and that this occasion was no different. She was particularly impressed with the crowd, which she estimated to be over 20,000.

Although Emrand Henry’s music is not well known locally, he is a fast rising gospel singer and showed the audience just why. He showcased his wide repertoire as he delivered reggae, soca and dancehall rhythms, which stirred the crowd even more.

Bahamian Mr Lynx was the last of the overseas performers to appear on stage, and he entertained the way only he could. The dreadlocked superstar sang several songs even treating the audience to some of his new releases. Although enjoyable, his performance was perhaps a bit too long for the tiring crowd.

However, as expected Prodigal Son was the standout artiste of the night. The talented singer entertained the crowd in true Jamaican style as he belted out one hit song after the other. His invitation to the members of the audience to draw closer to the stage saw a mad rush as some sought to get as close as possible to the singer. His delivery of his song “Ketch a Fire” was the highlight of performance and proved to be a truly crowd pleasing moment.

The rest of the programme included several performances by local singers, dancers, dramatists, and steel pan players. Interesting features of the concert, included a performance by a local Bhajan group, which sang gospel songs in Hindi as well as a hundred-voice choir, which was specially formed for the concert.

Gospel reigning supreme!

Gospel is saving Carifesta! This looks to be one of the best organized shows so far..hopes it comes through..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Expectations are high for the Carifesta X Gospel Concert slated for this evening at the National Stadium, Providence, which according to organisers is likely to attract in excess of 30,000 energised supporters.
At a press conference held at the Guyana International Conference Centre, Liliendaal, yesterday, coordinators of the Gospel Celebration, Pastors Kwame Gilbert and Marlon Hestick unveiled the manner and segments in which the grand event will unfold.
According to Pastor Gilbert, the concert will be graced with an abundance of overseas talent, the likes of Reverend Nicole Ballosingh-Holder of Trinidad and Tobago, Emrand Henry of St Lucia and gospel chart-toppers such as Calvin Williams better known as ‘the Prodigal Son’ out of Jamaica and Andrew Cartwright aka ‘Lynx’ of the Bahamas.
Some of the overseas artistes, according to Pastor Hestick, can he considered as “road people” that have been converted to Christ.
As such he cautioned that their gospel and means of bringing the message of hope and peace may not be delivered in the traditional way which will be demonstrated through some contemporary performances.
The overseas talent will be complemented by some of the best gospel performers on these shores, presently, including artistes such as Kester Dean, Edward Neblett, ‘Solid Youth’, Sean Sobers, Miriam Williams and as Pastor Hestick puts it, “anybody that is somebody in gospel music”.
More than 400 artistes are slated to perform at the concert, presenting an ethnic fusion of the Christian denomination through genres such as reggae, soca, calypso, and bhajan to name a few.
A steel pan group of about 35 players will also be an instrumental part of the concert.
The organisers are optimistic that the concert will be characteristic of a tremendous time of worship and praise which will be effectively represented by the various artistes.
“Each of the artistes will bring a different genre… a different style to this whole celebration that I believe will provide for entertainment for the entire family. We were at some of the rehearsals last evening and if the concert is anything like the rehearsals it’s going to be explosive,” Pastor Gilbert asserted.
The entire event, according to the pastor, was met with unprecedented response from the local community pointing out that initially 20,000 tickets were printed and sold in two days.
As a result another 10,000 were also sold in record time leaving a vast number of persons requesting that more be printed. - Guyana music arts
