Gem Myers delivered a sparkling performance at Cecil's Restaurant on Martin Street in Spanish Town, St Catherine, last Sunday.

She was headliner for the eatery's annual Mother's Day concert.

Opening her set with a medley of well-known gospel choruses, such as I Am Blessed, Send Down The Rain, Lead Me To The Rock, Myers said to the audience: “Somebody say Amen” to which they complied in unison.

She then quipped: “Service start, service end. Happy Mother's Day.”

Myers then gave a serving of musical delights, including We Are Family, the Whitney Houston suite — Where Do Broken Hearts Go, Didn't We Almost Have It All, You Are Still My Man, All At Once, I Have Nothing then glided into Better Get Ready ( Come do the Rocksteady), I'm Still In Love With You Boy, Willow Tree, Sea Of Love, and Book of Rules.

She then glided into some R&B with If You Could See Me Now, Hurt So Good, and If You're Not Back In Love By Monday.

Her set was met with sustained applause from the audience, including St Catherine Eastern Member of Parliament Denise Daley.

Through her set, the singer made several attempts to exit the stage but the patrons demanded more. They were rewarded with a flawless presentation of My Boy Lollipop, The First Cut Is The Deepest, One Life To Live, Breakfast In Bed, Girly Girly and her original One Man Woman.

Other acts on the evening were up-and-coming singer Carey Sayles, and instrumental duo of violinist Michael Wilson and keyboardist Fabian Hubban.
