Get ready to roll out your talent

Got talent?

The first Cayman’s Got Talent show
comes to Grand Cayman for the grand finale on Saturday, 16 October after a
series of district heats, so now’s the time to start warming up.

The show, organised as a fundraiser
by Nolly Brown Entertainment in association with the Cayman Islands Diabetes Association,
is for new and established local talent. Its launch in Cayman Brac on 4
September saw 18 contestants vying for a top spot in front of judges Nolly
Brown, the event organiser, and Isadora Powell and Renard Powell, both of local
band Bona Fide.

There was lots of audience
participation, Brown said, as well as robust cheering, a great atmosphere and
an audience that was very supportive of the acts. He said he was pleased with
the number of kids who signed up, among contestants ranging in age from 10 to

“The judges were pleased with the
level of talent and are looking forward to them coming over to compete at the
pre-finals next month on the ninth,” he said. Seven pre-finalists will head to
Grand Cayman to continue in the competition.

The seven are: Georgia Isaacs,
O’Laro Waite, Cordell Smith, Matthew McKintey and Felix Ebanks, Junior Dilbert,
Leshantae Missick, and

Diana Demaercado.  Their acts included singing original songs,
dancing and acrobatics.

Cayman’s Got Talent will hold the
grand finale on 16 October at the Lions Community Centre. All proceeds will go
towards providing local diabetics in need with necessary medical supplies, such
as glucose meters, insulin pumps and testing strips.

Mr. Brown said there has been a
“humongous amount of interest in Cayman’s Got Talent by people of all ages and
all nationalities living in the islands who want their shot at fame and a
chance to win the grand prize of $4,500 cash.

“We’ve been able to secure
sponsorship from TCYB, PictureThis, Kscan Cayman, Cost-U-Less, the Alexander
Hotel, Aunt Sha’s Kitchen, Island Photos, the Brac Reef Hotel and Backie’s
Restaurant. It’s amazing what can be achieved when the community rallies behind
an event,” he added.

“I’d like to thank Cayamn Brac for
the generosity and hospitality and for the friendly welcome we got and for the
support for Cayman’s Got Talent in the Brac,” said Brown, “and I’m looking
forward to next year’s event.”
