VaShawn Mitchell Headlines Christmas Concert!
“VASHAWN MITCHELL” HEADLINES BERMUDA’S BIGGEST CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Inter-Island Communications, Ltd, (IIC) parent company of HOTT 107.5 FM and MAGIC 102.7 FM Radio Stations are at it yet again! The ultra-community focused company is set to stage Bermuda’s Biggest Gospel Concert during this Christmas season.
IIC has been the most consistent local promoter of live events during the past year, which have predominantly featured exceptionally talented Bermudian Performing Artists. It started with the ever popular ‘Bermuda Idol Competition’ in March and will culminate when the company’s 6th and final concert for the year commences 7:00pm at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for Performing Arts on Saturday, December 21st.
IIC Managing Director, Gwen Blakeney admitted that it has been quite a challenge in meeting the company’s unwavering commitment to expose deserving local talent on such a frequent basis, adding that “We certainly wouldn’t have been able to sustain producing so much first class entertainment during live events throughout the year, had it not been for the incredible generosity and support of sponsors, as well as the public consistently turning out in huge numbers to every event. So it’s really been a blessing for everyone, especially the local entertainers themselves who seldom get to show off their talents on a regular basis”
As a result of the overwhelming demand from several people who attended the last HOTT 1075 Gospel Show, which was sold-out and featured a number of the island’s popular Praise Teams, IIC has responded by bringing in world renowned Gospel Star ‘VaShawn Mitchell’ to compliment a variety of Bermuda’s Best Gospel and Inspirational Talent, including WILLARD ‘WILL B’ BURCH, THE RESTORATION MINISTRIES SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST PRAISE TEAM, LARITTA ADDERLEY, THE VERNON TEMPLE PRAISE TEAM, CALVIN BUSBY, RICKEESHA BINNS, TRICRAY, THE AGAPE FAITH KINGDOM MINISTRIES PRAISE TEAM and THE APEX FOUR.Mrs. Blakeney adds, “We decided to end the year with an Inspirational pre-Christmas concert that would again feature local acts, but then IIC Co-Founder Glenn Blakeney felt we should also feature an international act, so he went about securing VaShawn upon learning of his availability.”
With the blessing of the Cornerstone Bible Fellowship and Laura Trott’s graphic eye for design, IIC plans to turn the Ruth Seaton James theatre into an atmosphere that truly reflects the Bermudian Christmas Spirit in celebration of the yuletide season! VaShawn Mitchell started off 2012 with 6 Stellar Award trophies in hand. Having been nominated for 11 statues, VaShawn's chart-topping CD ~ TRIUMPHANT ~ made him the top winner at the 2012 “Stellar Award” festivities, when he was humbled upon graciously winning 6 times. Acknowledging that the wins were a team effort, VaShawn appreciates & celebrates the contributions of everyone that had direct involvement in the "Triumphant" project. It was just announced that VaShawn has been nominated for the 2014 Stellar Award as the Male Vocalist of the Year.
