Women at the Control

The five women who took to the turntables did not disappoint one bit. On Saturday, October 30 in Kingston, five women 'spun' for charity at Studio 38. They exhibited great knowledge of music across all genres and had the party crowd dancing all night.

Millicent Lynch, Trisha Thompson, Janet Silvera, Marilyn Bennet and I took turns in the alloted 30 minutes and thrilled the sizeable crowd on hand who came out to support.

Millicent kicked things off with a dancehall variety featuring artistes like Ding Dong, Vbyz Kartel, Beenie Man; while Trisha tipped the hat with Dancehall, Hip Hop, R&B and House; Janet Silvera's entry on a bike excited the crowd and she rolled out hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s and current hits. Marilyn opened with Lady Saw's - Party till December and went back in time. I opened with a tribute to Buju Banton and played hits from Shaggy, Gregory Isaacs, Shabba and Luther Vandross.

Part proceeds from this event will go to the Kiwanis Club of West St. Andrew for two school feeding programmes (Ferry and Riverton Basic Schools). Dollis Capmbell was the promoter/organiser for the event.
