Ted­dyson John Con­trib­utes to the One Caribbean Con­cert for Do­minica

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

As the na­ture is­land of Do­minica con­tin­ues on its re­cov­ery and re­build­ing process, St. Lu­cian mu­si­cian and artiste Ted­dyson John (TJ), has also made his con­tri­bu­tion to the is­land. At the re­cently held ‘One Caribbean’ con­cert staged at the Kingston Oval in Bar­ba­dos, Ted­dyson joined many other Caribbean le­gends who all will­ingly con­trib­uted to the global move­ment in rais­ing aid for Do­minica.

St. Lu­cia stood well-rep­re­sented as Ted­dyson up­lifted the au­di­ence with his hit sin­gle ‘Allez’ which is cur­rently cre­at­ing waves across the Caribbean and the di­as­pora. An an­them cur­rently very ap­pro­pri­ate for Do­minica as the coun­try con­tin­ues to grap­ple with the tragedy of Trop­i­cal Storm Erika, TJ’s mes­sage of al­ways main­tain­ing a spirit of re­siliency was clear. He en­cour­aged all present to al­ways get up in the face of ad­ver­sity, to con­tinue to press on amidst chal­lenges and al­ways have the courage to over­come ob­sta­cles.

In spe­cial at­ten­dance was the Prime Min­is­ter of Do­minica, Honourable Roo­sevelt Sk­er­rit who was out­wardly moved by the out­pour­ing of as­sis­tance and love that his coun­try re­ceived by artistes and pa­trons alike.

TJ was in­vited by The Pyra­mid En­ter­tain­ment Group of Bar­ba­dos along with other artistes from var­i­ous Caribbean is­lands, some of whom in­cluded Tian Win­ter, Maxi Priest, Des­tra, Tanya Stephens, Ad­mi­ralty, Mikel Hen­der­son, Ed­win Year­wood, King Bubba, Skinny Fab­u­lous and the Lu­ciano.

The high­light of the evening was a very mov­ing ‘Lean On Me’ ren­di­tion by all artistes who all joined hands and their voices in true Caribbean unity for Do­minica.

Part two of the ‘One Caribbean Con­cert’ is slated for Novem­ber in the is­land of An­tigua for which TJ is also sched­uled to con­tinue to give as­sis­tance.
