Reggae and lovers rock singer Romain Virgo’s performance at Sunday’s Red Stripe Live Mother’s Day concert was the perfect treat for moms who turned up at the 876 Beach Club at Coopers Pen in Trelawny to hear the Love Sick artiste pour out his soul.

For nearly one and a half hours, the youthful Virgo delivered a gamut of originals and others made famous by other artistes. As he rocked the beachfront venue with his melodious voice, the women took off their shoes, dug their toes into the sand, and ran Pied Piper style to the foot of the stage, smartphones in hand, and began shooting videos.

Natoya Sterling, a mother of two, told WESTERN STAR that she was elated to have got the opportunity to see Virgo perform.

“I am happy to be a mother. It is a privilege not every woman gets. My significant other is treating me to this Mother’s Day concert. He knows I just love Romain,” Sterling said.

Junior ‘Japs’ Phillips took the mother of his children, Juliet Salmon, to the concert.

“She is a great mother to our children. She deserves to be treated specially, and what better way to treat her than to have Romain sing to her heart’s content,” Phillips said.

With the occasion being Mother’s Day, the soulful Virgo made time to not only celebrate the women but also to give an important message to mothers.

“It is now a common thing to hear of children of mothers being abused, killed and abducted. I am begging you mothers to pray for this country and tell what you know to the authorities. ‘When will I see you again’ must be about love, not about a lost child!”
