GUESTS attending the eighth staging of Simply Myrna were treated to an evening of delightful music. The event's latest instalment was held at the Courtleigh Auditorium in New Kingston last Saturday.

Myrna Hague may have been the headliner, but the other acts who shared the spotlight also added spice to the occasion.

“It's not a jazz show, but Myrna gets to sing all kinds of music,” Hague told the audience.

She had guests enthralled from the opening lines of I'm Coming Home, during which she introduced Jamaican-Canadian singer Jay Douglas. She then went through her set which included I Wish You and Many Rains Ago.

She then turned things over to an energetic Douglas. He charmed the audience by dancing up a storm and between the sloping aisles of the auditorium while belting out well-received versions of You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine and Any Day Now to name a few. He ended with his Juno Award-nominated song Hallelujah and too much applause.

Hague returned with her signature wardrobe change and took the programme expertly by introducing the next guests, Fab 5, after teasing many of the male members of the audience with her version of Babyface and dipping into a few jazzy tunes.

Fab 5 then continued to keep the flow going. Their set was very targeted, drawing on the ladies with their hit Jamaican Woman, which softened them up even further for lead crooner Andrew Casanova, to close off with a medley of '70s soul songs.

Hague closed out the night with an enthusiastic and appreciative round of applause from the near-capacity venue.
