Virtuous Women – UK
Written by Beres on 08/03/2021
Winsome discussed the idea with her partner in crime Frederica Tibbs, and they contacted some of the UK’s finest to participate. An enjoyable night was had by all. Winsome and Freddie were assisted by some kindred spirits and genuine Irie siStars who have been loyal friends over the years – Susan, Maureen, Sai, Theresa and Veronica and that was the beginning of the Virtuous Women UK.
On the night, Elder Enid from Ruach Ministries in Brixton was invited to open the event with prayer, and to deliver a message of encouragement for individuals to keep motivated in these unprecedented times, stay encouraged and to keep the faith.
On the 23rd August, the Virtuous Women UK put on their 2nd event via Zoom. The male version, which was entitled, Victorious Men of Valour, which attracted over 2500 viewers via Zoom and Facebook live stream. We had artists performing internationally from Jamaica and France along with a host of the UK’s finest. The event was opened by a great singer and Pastor delivering a word of encouragement. This was also well received.
On September 13th, The Virtuous Women UK went on to present their 3rd event, The Majestic Maestros of Music which included 16 well known UK DJ’s who each played a variety of music designed to inspire, uplift and take us down memory lane. The music consisted of all the varying genres Reggae, R&B, Soca, Rare Grooves, RnB, slow jams, Gospel, Afro beats, and Neo Soul. This was an exceptional night and had the audience rocking the night away and raving in the safety of their own homes. We have received phenomenal feedback about this 6 and a half hour event.
Our next event took place in October where we celebrated our very own Virtuous Woman, and songstress, Frederica Tibbs’s 40th year in the Music Industry. This was epic for one of the UK’s leading queens in the reggae fraternity who is also well known for her phenomenal backing vocals.
The 8th November we started our “Locked In With….” events which feature a guest being interviewed, performing live and accompanied by their choice of special guest and personally selected DJ. Our first guest was Ricardo Mckenzie aka Ricky Ranking the second artist was “Locked In With… David Papa Crook” on the 6th December.
On the 13th December we hosted Harmonious Kings and Queens with Voices, an outstanding event with performances from some of the UK’s finest male and female artists.
On the 1st January 2021 we hosted The Majestic Maestro’s of Music part 2 which consisted of 16 well known DJ’s who bought in New Year Day with a bang, starting at 5.00 p.m., it was suppose to end at 9.00 p.m. but was actually closed by us at 2.00 a.m with our audience still asking us not to end. This demonstrated that there was a need to see some form on entertainment happening in these unsettling times.
Up and coming future events
