ON April 28, past contestants of Digicel Rising Stars and Tastee Talent Trail contests, shone at Redbones Blues Café in New Kingston in an event dubbed Soul Experience.

It featured Rising Stars 'graduates' Latty J, Jodian Pantry and Verlando Small. Patrick Brown, the 2011 Tastee contest winner, now known as TruSoul, also performed.

Pantry, the 2007, runner-up to Romain Virgo, got things going on a high note with Shine Like a Diamond, Struggling, You Didn't Know and One Plus One before making way for saxophonist Small, the reigning champion.

The first musician to win 'Rising Stars', Small gave a smooth rendition of I Will Always Love You and Saving All My Love For You, among others.

Latty J, runner-up to Tash in the 2011 contest, performed Irie Vibes and Jamaica Land We Love, which earned her an encore.

Most impressive was TruSoul who started with the John Legend hit, All of Me. He did a soulful set with numbers like Beauty, Survivor and Hustling Man.
