Ch’an is ready to rock world stages


Share post:

Outfitted in an Alwin Kirk design and accessorized with confidence and charisma, Ch’an took the stage with the accompaniment of a live backing band and vocalists Indrani and Rochelle Griffith to showcase her talent to an audience that comprised close family, media, and some of Barbados’ and the international music industry’s most elite.
For 45 minutes the former Christ Church Foundation School student serenaded the audience with a melody of songs that included five original numbers.
After each number the audience’s applause got louder, making it obvious she was winning them over with her powerful jazzy vocal ability and bubbly attitude which showed through her constant interaction with the audience.
The crowd response so overwhelmed the 20-year-old songstress that she got teary-eyed while thanking all who came out to the event and those who helped make it possible, especially organizer Trevor Pretty.
Her ease onstage and the way she worked the stage would have left everyone surprised to learn that she had only been performing for audiences other than friends and family for six months.
She was also part of the Honey Jam experience.
Ch’an, real name Mia Cumberbatch, said that ultimately her goal is to be known all over the world not just for her voice but also for making a difference.
Charity work is very close to her heart and she has already gotten into the habit of “giving back” by donating some of her earnings to the HIV/AIDS food bank. Hopefully for Ch’an, last Friday’s showcase will be the start of a long and successful journey.
