Our second Annual Awards Celebration took place on Saturday 7th July 2018 at the West Midlands Travel Social Club in Kings Heath, Birmingham. The event proved bigger and better than last year as we welcomed double the audience and acknowledged 16 individual award winners from the West Midland and Jamaica.
Attendees were treated to an uplifting and inspiring evening, which featured special performances from a number of upcoming young people including vocalist, Leesha Mac, and Tynna Hyde and Mya Bushell from Eloquent Praise Dance Company.
It was a pleasure to welcome back Romello Martin and Taneisha Deans (2017 RARF Award Winners) as co-presenters. Both did an excellent job in ensuring the evening was enjoyed by all, with Romello bringing a sense of light humour to proceedings.
Further entertainment was provided by RARF Patron, Hector Pinkney MBE aka ‘Captain Boogie’ and singer Christine Adelsie.
