Machel Monday starts run up to Carnival
Monday, February 4 2013
The week leading up to the Greatest Show on Earth begins with a bang tonight with one of the highly anticipated concerts of the season. Machel Monday has been a mainstay of Carnival for several years, featuring last year’s triple crown winner backed by his HD family. Last year’s concert realised a crowd numbering over 20,000 patrons who journeyed through time on the wings of music and culture. Local artiste Benjai (Rodney Le Blanc) was honoured by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, who appeared on stage along with her husband Dr Gergory Bissessar, then National Security Minister Brigadier John Sandy and other ministers. This year, Machel Monday will focus on Machelements: Earth, Wind and Fire, the elements of Carnival. One of the anticipated elements of the concert is the many guest appearances, both of local and international artistes. This year, Montano will not disappoint with his special guests who include the newest Rap sensation Trinidad James, who has gained popularity with his song “All Gold Everything”. Also in the line-up is American-born rapper, singer-songwriter and record producer, Pitbull, who returns to share a concert stage with Machel once again and Jamaican/American artiste, Shaggy.
