producer Leonard Griffith, son of veteran entertainer Lord Radio. She and Griffith plan to produce some of her music dating back over 15 years. And while most of her songs are now sung at church, Heyliger looks forward to again sharing her music with Barbadians at large.
Family life, church and work take up a significant portion of her time. Her eldest son Rhemi holds distinctions in agriculture and is currently a quarantine officer, while her two younger children Jazz and Symphony are completing their studies. All three children are musically inclined, but have no interest in following in their parents’ footsteps.
Heyliger also wants to invest her time in taking the Gospel into schools “to let young people know about God and encourage them to serve Him”.
“What is missing in our young people is there is no fear of God. We need to let them know they have to answer to God someday. We need to seek God for them. We can put Barbados back on its feet, not as churchgoers but by spending time in prayer and in The
Word. Love is the key”, she concluded.
CHARMAIN HEYLIGER believes she is in a better place today for having tuned her life over to God.
