When I thought that last year’s 12th Hubbards Legends in Concert was the best ever, I was pleasantly surprised to see this year’s 13th outclass it. As scheduled, the show started at exactly 7.30 pm on Saturday 9th July last at the Trade Centre. The indefatigable comedian, Robert Whyte “emcied” the show and the “Back in times Band” together with three back-up singers ably supported the artistes. Our own singing star, Emily Rapier opened up with a magnificent rendition of our national anthem. Then in her own smooth velvety voice, she sang the legendary “I Will Survive” song which was made popular by American singing legend, Gloria Gaynor. She then ended her performance with an up-beat African tempo. She was followed by recently discovered local calypsonian “Baraka” who sang “Reach Out”, “We give them the Power” and “We living in Slavery”.
