Excelsior Community College shines with health expo Image

by Biko Kennedy

As part of their College week-long activities (March 11-15), the Disaster Preparedness Committee of Excelsior Community College played host to a short yet captivating concert on it's opening day.

Under the theme 'Health and disaster awareness.....everybody's business" the aim of the expo dances the lines of educating and informing students, members of their staff as well as community members about on-going issues surrounding disaster and health management.

With booths strategically placed on the school's grounds, sponsors Jamaicansmusic.com, Power 106 FM, Music 99 FM, Optical Express and ODPEM could hear animated chatter filling the air about the varying pamphlets being handed out and of the concert which one student noted to be "too good to have finished so soon."

Having veteran deejay Lovindeer kicking things off, he certainly didn't hold back his pun-tangled catalogue. With his face expressing a gamut of emotions he set the concert in motion with his 1984 single 'Pocomania Day' before entering into his Lady G-assisted single 'The Question (You Eat You Cook)' much to an entertainingly-baffled reaction from the crowd.

Before entering his most-talked-about song, 'Wild Gilbert', Lovindeer pointed out that "it's been 25 years since Gilbert coursed across Jamaica," which 3/4 of the crowd would have only heard stories about as they were (assumingly) born in the early 90's.

Performing an acoustic-laced rendition of his debut single 'Forever', Conkarah caressed the ears of his female listeners as they willingly accepted the serenade and begged for an encore performance after he gave them a taste of his yet-to-be-released single 'Remember the Days'.

Next up was singing sensation Kim Nain who opened with a cover piece of John Holt's 1972 best seller 'Stick by Me' which led to choir-esque singing from patrons. Further delving into her growing catalogue, Kim Nain dazed the crowd with her singles 'Deep in Love', 'Anything for Love' and 'Road Block' before calling up her fellow Gorgon Entertainment mates Jedani and Vetta di Principal to perform the tracks 'Rebel' and 'Generation'. Dance extraordinaires Dance Xpressionz brought the school grounds to an applause-filled cheer-fuelled spectacle with a hyperkinetic performance of a RDX's 'Kotch', Chronixx' 'Behind Curtain' and Elephant Man's 'Dash Wata' mash-up.

As performances and numerous spot prizes and give-aways continued, the concert certainly was a hit amongst patrons with the day's mission being fulfilled.
