MEET THE 2015 MISS CARIBBEAN UK DELEGATES

MCUK 2015 DELEGATES

HEAT 1 - MANCHESTER

Miss Caribbean UK MCUK will be fundraising for the ACLT (African Caribbean Luekemia Trust) and Cancer Research UK because we want to help fund cutting-edge research to find cures, save lives, and support cancer patients move their lives forward.

 

Please help us raise money for a good cause.

On the 11 July 2015 all roads led to the Lounge Bar, Manchester, for the first National heat of Miss Caribbean UK 2015.

The team at MCUK had been anticipating this moment for over six months. Now the moment had arrived.

 

Two contestants were chosen; Miss Selina Chippy, 28, who will be representing Jamaica & Miss Rochelle Barratt, 26 representing Barbados. Both candidates performed exceptionally well and will be in the final, with a chance to be crowned Miss Caribbean UK 2015.

 

Those in attendance added to the great energy of the occasion, and we would like to extend our appreciation to all who were involved in this inaugural event, especially the contestants. We would also like to give a special mention to our fabulous judges; JACKIE BURTON (JB) of Peace FM. Keneva O'Connor an R&B Reggae Gospel Artist and Somoya Nelson, a performing Arts Actor who is currently part of BAM theatre. Last but certainly not least, we have to give special appreciation to our choreographer and production manager Reuben P Joseph.

 

The entertainment on the night was provided by Keneva O’Connor, and Shola Mcleod introduced by Manchester Young Advisor – Kemoy Walker PTTLS. The energy ramped up as we all sang along to the positive vibes. So powerful was their effect on us that we have decided to book them to be a part of the finale at the Shaw Theatre, Euston, London, on December 5th 2015.

 

If we find other contestants and entertaining talent like these in the other regions, we will be truly blessed.

 

HEAT 2 - BIRMINGHAM

The second National heat of Miss Caribbean UK 2015 took place on the 25th July 2015, at the Red Gate Chinese Restaurant and Bar, 151 Hurst road, Birmingham. We had thought that the energy we had felt in Birmingham would be difficult to re-create, but we were wrong! Chinese and Caribbean’s united to produce a show which we could all be proud off.

We love Keneva and you will get a chance to hear her sing at the final of Miss Caribbean UK, on the 5th of December, at the Shaw Theatre, Euston.  You won’t be disappointed. Hyper Hype - Recording Artist/Producer/Actor/ Radio Broadcaster/Artist Management /Club and Pageant Promoter, along with his dancers, gave an energetic and rousing performance

HEAT 3 - NOTTINGHAM

The third National heat of Miss Caribbean UK 2015 took place on the 15th August 2015, at the ACNA Community Centre, 31 Hingerhill Road, St Ann’s, Nottingham NG3 4NB.

 

Wow! Big up Nottingham!

 

We at Miss Caribbean UK are really enjoying visiting different parts of the UK and interacting with the communities therein. We have found that although the accents may be different the peoples’ aspirations are essentially the same. Living a happy harmonious, productive and peaceful life.

 

In all the cities we have held heats of Miss Caribbean UK, we have found the individuals we have worked with, to be extremely supportive of our aim and objective to bring Miss Caribbean UK to the UK. For instance, Leroy Gray who helped us with the organizing and promotion of the Nottingham heat is constantly encouraging us to continue with our work as he can see the potential that the event has as a vehicle to get the disparate communities in the UK to interact together around a common goal. We would, therefore, like to thank Leroy Gray, Dione Rose and Yvonne White (Nottingham), Eddie Odudu (Manchester) and Mr Chin, Hyper Hype & Ras King BoBo (Birmingham) for all the help and encouragement and we promise to continue doing what we doing.

HEAT 4 - LONDON

The fourth National heat of Miss Caribbean UK 2015 took place in London on the 23rd August 2015, at the magnificent Shaka Zulu restaurant, Stables Market, Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AB

 

We expected our home town to be well represented and we were not disappointed. Fourteen ladies took their chance to be crowned the Queen and represent the Caribbean in the United Kingdom. They represented many Caribbean countries, however, their aim was the same; to be ambassador’s for the CARIBBEAN! To highlight and raise awareness of the positive contributions we have made UK culture and society.

 

The show was equal to the stunning vibrancy of the venue. I was told by the manager that the entire interior of the venue had been made Africa. The place is amazing to see! Superb statues and images of African characters were everywhere, with dimmed lighting, it was easy to imagine that you were in fact back in the “Mother land”. The girls had learnt their choreographed walks by Reuben P Joseph, Haylee Venus, Kane Jones and his protégés Lana and it showed in the poise and grace with which they portrayed themselves.

 

The audience were clapping all night, encouraged by our host on the night, the ever suave Mr Livingston Gilchrist to raise it UP, UP! Indeed the energy went up and continued on its upward trajectory through the night.  Our entertainers brought the roof down, so to speak. Ayesha, Deborah and Record Heads, had Shaka Zulu rocking. So much so, that the manager Mr Manny Shoria came and asked who the singers were and where we had found them as they were so good. I told him we were very fortunate, as it was they who had found us.

 

Suffice it to say, the night was a fabulous success, worth of a final. An event filled with style and Panache. (Have a look at the pictures, you will wish you had been there.)

 

Our fabulous judges on the night have experience of a wide gamut of skills in the community and entertainment sectors: -Rodney Hinds (Sports& Features Editor of the Voice Newspaper); Miss Keeleigh Griffith (Current Miss Caribbean UK queen); Deborah Herbert (one of MCUK Primary sponsor) and Donna Joseph (Sales Manager at Stoke Newington Travel sponsoring the flights)

 

The audience was entertained by: - RECORD HEADS (Boy Band); Deborah Herbert (Solo Artists) and Ayesha (Solo Artists).

 

London ladies represented! Candidates performed exceptionally well on the night. Eight contestants were chosen; and will be in the final, with a chance to be crowned Miss Caribbean UK 2015.

 

Tehia Rae McDermott; Neesha Robinson; Alisha Pomells; Nicole Renwick; Shiquerra Mckie; Yinka Williams; Alisha Eversley – John and Venisha Hamilton.

 

Our last heat this year will be in Bristol on the 19th September 2015, so BRISTOL LADIES, for your chance to be crowned Miss Caribbean UK and win £1500 and much more….
