Singing cop dazzles church
Clad in his uniform and with his assigned M16 assault rifle slung over his shoulder, a young policeman earned himself a host of Christian admirers after he exercised his vocals at a recent church service.
Constable Errol Walters of the Kingsvale Police Station emerged the toast of the Hanover Bike Riders’ and Taxi Drivers’ Church Service, which was staged at the Riverside United Church.
Walters earned the name ‘Singing Police’, and left no doubt that he was a crooner of no small order, as he all but brought the house down with a performance that would have made any established entertainer proud.
Unlike in the streets, where bike riders and taxi operators would normally avoid contact with the police, it was a much different scenario inside the Riverside United Church, as they were on their feet cheering on the singing policeman, even providing background vocals.
“I feel good because there is still hope for the Jamaica Constabulary Force,” said the Reverend Delroy Harris, after Walters gave his rendition of Shirley Caesar’s Jesus Makes The Difference in Me.
