Can’t stop this feelin’


So maybe that’s a slight rip off of another song, but when I saw these Christmas photos, I felt exactly the same way I do when I hear ol’ Justin with his sunshine in his pocket.

On Monday, the Cayman Youth Choir sang their hearts out in a torrential downpour at Government House – some 400 people showed up for the event, hosted by HE the Governor, Mr Martyn Roper and his wife, Mrs Roper. Let’s just say – the rain couldn’t stop the exuberance of these young voices.

His Excellency is with me on this, telling GIS . ” …just as the children from Cayman Youth Choir began to perform, the rain began. Yet they carried on performing Christmas Carols in the rain. As their sound system was hurried away for safety reasons, they sang even louder.”

“I think it showed such Christmas spirit and the atmosphere at Government House, despite people huddling together under shelter to keep dry, was fantastic. A lot of planning goes into these events but the weather of course can’t be controlled. This is one event I won’t forget in a hurry! Well done to all the children and Naomi Allnutt, who carried on conducting despite the downpour.”

Sometimes I think we forget about the “Merry” in Christmas. These photos re-aligned my attitude and now I’m singing along with them.
