No Ordinary Show

John enjoying some Bajan hospitality

I began yesterday as a John Legend fan. I woke up this morning in love with John Legend. (Just kidding, hubby, lol)

But seriously. John Legend put down a performance out of this world last night at the Wildey Gymnasium. From the first note of When I Used To Love You to the final note of Stay With You, he had the large crowd eating out of his hands.

Opening act Philip 7 and Masala did a sterling job as well, and the high point for me was 72-member strong St. Leonard's Boys' Choir accompanying Philip 7 on the new single Blame It On Love.

John Legend sauntered on to the stage around 9:00 p.m. and staked his claim in the hearts of his fans. Did I mention he's not exactly hard on the eyes?

His band did an excellent job, but for me it was about the man and his piano. It was on sale after the show for $37,000, by the way.

The entertainer belted out hit after hit from his three albums, and the crowd screamed as the familiar strains of Ordinary People, So High, Green Light, Can't Be Your Lover, This Time and others rang out.

One lucky lady got a chance to slow dance with the singer and received a kiss and a rose. I wonder if she's recovered by now.

Wuhloss. The show was worth every penny and then some. Actually, I think I might owe John some money back. I hope to see him again in Bim one day.

John Legend's coming, y'all!

Prepare to "get lifted" when Grammy award-winning musician John Legend performs in Barbados tomorrow night at the Wildey Gymansium.

The star's performance will be preceded by local sensation Masala.

I've enjoyed John Legend's music for years and I'm really looking forward to this performance. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

Obama gets Osama...and Trump too

When I heard on Saturday night that Osama Bin Laden had not only been found but had been killed, I almost said..."who dat?"

I mean, the US turned Afghanistan upside down for the past 10 years trying to find their once ally-turned terrorist, only to find him under their noses in suburban Islamabad in Pakistan. The same Pakistan, by the way, that was supposedly searching high and low for him as well. Not a good look, Pakistan...

Well, I can only hope that there aren't any reprisals as a result of bin Laden's death. I think the world needs a break from the senseless wars that have taken place in the last decade.

Americans are really something else. Obama has gotten lynched for trying to achieve universal health care for his citizens and now that his country's most wanted fugitive has been taken out under his watch, folks are shouting "four more years"....

Meanwhile, as a crowner to a politically-charged week, President Obama got a chance to stick it to his critics at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, especially 2012presidential hopeful, Donald Trump. I won't spoil it for you, you can watch it yourself. Too sweet....
