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.
