Western Carollers steal crown at Police Carolling Competition, again

Share

For a second consecutive year, the Western Carollers showed why they are best among law enforcement officers when it comes to carol singing.

The group, which sang with precision and well coordinated vocals, got the judges’ nod last Friday, December 19, when the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force held their annual Christmas Carolling Competition{{more}} at the Central Police Station.

The group took home the top prize of $500 and a trophy.

They sang “Do You Hear What I Hear” and “Christmas Rock.”

Fierce competitors, Immigration Songsters put up a great fight, but it was only good enough to land them the second spot with their songs “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” and “Immigration Ah Come.”

Third position went to to Headquarters Carollers, who had the crowd rolling with laughter, when Commissioner of Police Michael Charles put on some of his best dancing moves on stage (see www.Facebook.com/Searchlight1 for video).

They sang “O little town of Bethlehem” and “Watch yourself.”

In the junior division, coming from all across the seas, the Grenadines Carollers took top position with their song, “Angels We Have Heard On High.”

Coming in second in the junior division was North Western with their song “Do You Hear What I Hear” and third place went to South Western with their rendition of “Three Kings.”

The other groups in the senior category were: Eastern Carollers, CID, CPS Carollers, Auxiliaries, SVG Port Carollers and Carolling Soldiers.

Eastern, Central and South Central were the other groups in the junior division.

Other performances on the night came from the La Gracia Dance Company, the SVG Port Authority Genesis steel pan group and the police band.(See www.facebook.com/Searchlight1 for more photographs) (KW)
