My Father had always been a religious man.

As he matured to adulthood he moved location to St Thomas. 

During his stay in St. Thomas, my Father embarked on an apprenticeship as a tailor before returning to Kingston - Back in Kingston he perused career in engineering welding. He loved to sing whist he is working. 

His singing had drawn the attention of several work colleagues, who encouraged him to try out an audition.
