WHITEHOUSE, Westmoreland — After setting the stage ablaze with their talents, it was obvious that western representatives from Sandals Whitehouse Krystal Nembhard-Reid and Kara-Lee Cole would have won their respective categories at the recently concluded Sandals and Beaches Resorts' Entertainment Now Creates Opportunity Rewarding Excellence (ENCORE) National Finals at Sandals Grande Riviera.

Kara-Lee Cole, guest activities agent at Sandals Whitehouse gave an electrifying dance interpretation of Alanis Morissette's 'Uninvited' that had the audience nodding in approval with some caught up in the story she told with her sleek body movements. Cole outshined dancers from Sandals Resorts in the Montego Bay and Ocho Rios regions and was awarded the title of Champion Dancer.

Krystal Nembhard-Reid, Club Sandals supervisor at Sandals Whitehouse ruled the catwalk and was a clear crowd favourite after her swimsuit debut. She later sealed the deal in a gorgeous evening gown created by local designer Maria Myers and walked away with the Top Female Model title.

The two join Jamie Green, Best Male Vocalist from Sandals Resorts International, Kaisha McDonald, Best Female Vocalist, Robert Wisdom, Best Instrumentalist and Rennex Tapper, Top Male Model from the Ocho Rios region in representing Jamaica in the various categories at the ENCORE Grand finals. The event is scheduled to take place in St Lucia on August 17 and the Jamaican representatives will match talents with winners from Antigua, St Lucia, Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos Islands.
