Jazz in the Gardens bound

Danielle Prabhu, Glenda Roker, Kareema Styles and Thalia Campbell will experience the magical tradition that is Jazz in the Gardens, courtesy of The Nassau Guardian, Star 106.5 FM and Hot 91.7.
Each of the winners and a guest have won the opportunity to take in live the star-studded line-up of artists over the weekend at the ninth annual event in Miami at the Sun Life Stadium --Grammy Award winners LL Cool J, Jamie Foxx, and Anthony Hamilton; bass guitar legend Stanley Clarke; the beloved Maze featuring Frankie Beverly; R&B artists Trey Songz; original Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland; R&B funk group Mint Condition, six-octave vocal songstress Rachelle Farrell and 2014 Grammy nominee jazz artist Boney James.
This year's JIG host -- D.L. Hughley is one of the most popular and highly recognized standup comedians today.
Prabhu, whose package include airfare with Bahamasair for two, car rental with Dollar Thrifty, hotel accommodations at Staybridge Suites and concert tickets for two for both nights, along with tickets for two to tonight's Friday Night Opening Party, featuring The S.O.S. Band and The Daz Band, made it a girls weekend, as she decided to take her sister Bean Prabhu with her.
"I was actually in shock to find out I had won," said Prabhu. "This is the first time I've won anything this big."
While excited to have won, she's no stranger to the Jazz in the Gardens experience having gone to the last two festivals. This time she's happy she did not have to spend her own money.
The artist lineup she said makes this year extra special. The 20-something said she's most excited to see Trey Songz.
Kareema Styles who walked away from the promotion with a package for two that included airfare, accommodations, car rental and concert tickets for both nights.
Unlike Prabhu, Styles will experience the magic that has become the tradition for Jazz in the Gardens for the first time.
"I was actually very excited to win because I had been saying for a couple of years that I wanted to go and had never made it yet, so winning worked out well," she said. And only having to come up with pocket change she said would make the experience that much sweeter. She too was looking forward to seeing Trey Songz. She took her boyfriend with her.
Glenda Roker's winning package included round trip airfare for two and concert ticket passes for both days. She planned to meet up with a cousin in Florida to take in the Festival, including tonight's Friday Night Opening Party as she looked forward to getting her old-school groove on with her boyfriend. She's excited to see Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly and attending tonight's grown and sexy party.
"It's a different kind of experience, even though I'm going to be looking forward to seeing Jamie Foxx and LL Cool J and I know Kelly Rowland's songs but it will be interesting to experience the classics," said the 20-something year old.
This will be Roker's first time at JIG.
Star 106.5FM and Hot 91.7 programming director Tony Williams said the winners should expect to be "blown away". He described this year's line-up as a good mix that caters across the generations. Williams himself was most interested in seeing what LL Cool J would bring to the stage, and about the Funky Friday Night Opening Party that he said has added new flavor to the event.
"The Funky Friday Night Opening Party is something different, especially for the old school folks who may not know too much about the new artists and for those people who may be going over to Florida early," he said.
Williams was also eager to see performances by Jamie Foxx, Kelly Rowland and Mint Condition.
"Jamie Foxx can be considered old school as well as new school, and he's a comedian, so I think you're going to get a good show out of Jamie Foxx, so I'm looking forward to seeing him as well as Kelly Rowland who I've never seen before, but she's got quite a body of work including Dirty Laundry and Kisses Down Low which were very big for her, plus she had songs before that, including some gospel songs, so I think people will enjoy her. Then there's Mint Condition who I've never seen, but I know their music," said Williams.

Taylor, the lead vocalist for the Vice Versa Band will bring to the event to be held tomorrow between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., a voice that is luxuriant, silky. She has a sophisticated tonality to her voice that speaks straight to her listener's heart.

Once in every blue moon you come across a voice that makes your hair rise, and your heart beat a little faster -- the rich and soulful vocals of Shacara Newton will do just that.
The lead vocalist for Tingum Dem, Newton is blessed with an impeccable voice of almost unimaginable power and quality. And she weaves in and out of genres and puts her personal stamp on every song -- from calypso to soul, to jazz to R&B.

His voice has a melodic and spiritual quality that makes him unique.
"We have an awesome line-up," said Nassau Sunrise Fundraising Director Deno Moss. "We're hoping people come out and have a wonderful time at this beautiful evening designed for fun, networking and fellowship. There will be lots of food and drinks provided by Burns House. We will even have vegan food available."

The "Jingle bell Jazz: An Evening of Music, Joy and Fun" will be the fourth in the series of jazz events staged by Nassau Sunrise Rotary. At their initial street party event, at least 600 people filled the street in front of Van Breugel's; approximately 400 crammed their event at the Blu Restaurant. They also had a good crowd at their National Art Gallery event as well.
"This time we're going under the stars at the Bahamas National Trust, which will be decorated in a Christmas theme," said Moss. Rotary is a service organization that focuses on service above self. The Nassau Sunrise club meets on Thursdays at 7 a.m. at the British Colonial Hilton.

KGBC's 7th anniversary commences with worship at Freeport Gospel Chapel

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- In 2006, The Grand Bahama Port Authority, Limited (GBPA) launched the Keep Grand Bahama Clean (KGBC), initiative to encourage partnerships at all levels in keeping Grand Bahama clean. Seven years later the KGBC Committee, which is comprised of governmental and non-governmental agencies, the private sector, civic groups and concerned residents, remain committed to the mandate of educating and promoting environmental stewardship amongst the residents of Grand Bahama.
In recognition of KGBC's 7th year Anniversary, the committee worshipped at Freeport Gospel Chapel (FGC), commencing the 2013 Anniversary activities for the month of October. A warm receptive acknowledgment and prayer along with a special musical selection by committee member A.S.P. Kenwood Taylor welcomed the group of fifteen. Committee Chairperson and GBPA Environmental Manager, Mrs. Nakira Wilchcombe was thankful and pleased to have members attend the church service. She encouraged the group, that while many milestones have been reached, more is required to cultivate an environmentally conscious mindset within the island's citizenry. Wilchcombe also noted the importance of all becoming better stewards of what God has given us by protecting the environment.
"Each year we are equally impressed and thankful for the support we receive from the corporate community, various civic groups and the residents of Grand Bahama," noted Wilchcombe. "As a result of these partnerships, there have been some accomplishments, particularly with the establishment of programmes within some communities and schools throughout the island. We are hopeful that these programmes will grow and serve to protect the environments in which we live and work for future generations," Wilchcombe continued. "However, let us be mindful that there is still much work to be done, and we look forward to your continued support in the years to come, being constantly reminded that it is everyone's business to keep our island clean."
