After successfully staging the inaugural Total Surrender funday and concert, promoter and Gospel artiste Nicholet Brown said she is mulling the idea of making the event annual.
She told The Beacon that a number of people have been requesting more.
“I intend to make it an annual event, and to implore community members to come on board,” she said, adding: “This is one of my first of many projects in developing the community and my alma mater – Point Hill Leased Primary and Junior High School.”
Brown, who teaches at the said school, named the event held on 29 December 2018 after her first major single titled Total Surrender.
She is pleased with what she said was the turnout of an estimated 400 people.
“Having recently released the single, Total Surrender, I believe the response from the community [to the event] was satisfying,” she said.
Brown, who was the headliner of the concert, stated that she achieved her mission, which was to bring the Point Hill community together through praise and worship. The other performers included Bro Andre, Keron Clarke, Kereen Gregory, Georgia Jackson, and Hopeton Willis.
Brown said the event also provided an opportunity for a number of local businesses to showcase their offerings.
Shoes designer Zanory Petgrave, who is also called Zan The Designer, said the event helped his business.
“It helped my business a lot because people could actually see what I was doing, and wanted to get shoes for themselves because they love the designs and patterns on the shoes,” he commented.
The event also featured a fashion show displaying the work of L-Slick Designs, which is operated by Alleysaia Whitely, a native of Duxes district in Point Hill.
In the meantime, part of the proceeds from Total Surrender will go towards the breakfast programme at Point Hill Leased Primary and Junior High School, where the event was held. “The aim of the event is to assist with funding a breakfast programme for the school,” Brown said.
