LIME Barbados Karaoke Championship at Braddie’s Bar: Chance for Barbadians to compete for $5,000
On hearing a stage name like Commander Bond one would immediately think of a combination of a militant, sweet talking and crafty person. Keith Agard is no James Bond but last Friday night at Braddie’s Bar he gave a charismatic and energetic performance, commanding the stage and audience with a prize winning performance.
For his showmanship and the entertainment value he provided he won a special prize from Managing Director of LIME Alex McDonald who came to Braddie’s Bar to view the competition. According to McDonald, ‘I was thoroughly entertained by his performance, and for his lively and enjoyable performance I will give him a prize, a LIME cell phone.”
The men have once again taken up the top positions; besides Agard, Kenrick Murrell was the second qualifier last Friday for the Elimination Rounds in September at the Plantation Theatre. He sang the Soul and R&B inspired “Some Kind of Wonderful”. By his impressive vocal talents and confidence in his performance he won the judges and the audience’s approval.
Normally when professionals in the entertainment industry pass through Braddie’s Bar on Friday nights they just check out the competition, but last week Philip 7 of the band Masala showed his versatility by singing the Karaoke version of Superstition by Stevie Wonder to open the competition on a high note.
The LIME Barbados Karaoke Championship has the biggest cash prizes for a Karaoke Competition with $5,000, a Professional Recording and a 32’ inch flat screen television. The judges for the night were Ricky Aimey and Peter Boyce with Janelle Walcott as the Emcee. See you Friday night when the championship continues with registration opening at 8:00pm and judging starting at 10:30pm.
