PM's wife for Powerful Men and Woment concert
Wife of the prime minister and Member of Parliament Juliet Holness is set to make an appearance at the 16th staging of the annual Powerful Women & Men Perform for Charity show.
Scheduled for Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Wolmer's Boys' School, the show is expected to pull a huge crowd as it has become one of the most highly anticipated entertainment events on the local calendar.
Also confirmed as first-time performers are Jacqueline Sharp, regional head for Scotiabank Caribbean North & Central; Janet Farr, president of the Nurses' Association of Jamaica; Audrey Tugwell Henry, senior general manager, retail banking, National Commercial Bank; Jasmine Rand, famed attorney who represented the Trayvon Martin family in the USA; Claudja Berry-Alexander, former lead singer for Boney M; and David Neita, attorney, motivational speaker, lecturer, and poet based in London.
Members of Parliament Fitz Jackson and Alando Terrelonge will also be giving a performance on the night as well as attorney Peter Champagnie, music producer Scatta Burrell, and Khani Condison, actor and film producer. According to organisers, this year's show will feature a number of perennial favourites and a number of new surprise elements.
Final rehearsals are set for tomorrow under the direction of creative director Weston Haughton and musical director Ewan Simpson. Designers Keneea Linton and Dexter Huxtable have committed to providing outfits for the first time for the fashion segments.
Patrons can purchase tickets at a cost of $2,500 for adults and $1,000 for children. There will be no tickets on sale at the gate. Parking will be at the adjoining The Mico University College and patrons will enter the venue through an adjoining gate.
