When you’re driving along and one of your favourite songs comes on the radio, you probably find yourself singing along – maybe loudly, maybe off key, maybe dancing like a crazy person because who cares who’s watching? Now imagine doing that with the singer of that amazing record in the passenger seat beside you!
This week’s episode of ‘TTIX Yellow Cab Karaoke’ marks the first in an eight-week series leading up to The Taste the Islands Experience Caribbean culinary festival weekend. Each week Calibe Thompson – former singer, currently the executive producer of national TV show ‘Taste the Islands’, and a producer of the event weekend – is joined by one of her famous friends on a joy ride through Fort Lauderdale in a Yellow Cab. Each week they sing songs and share laughs while you get to watch.
On the premiere episode, Wayne Wonder steps into the cab for colourful conversation, singing along to some all-time favourites including ‘No Letting Go’, ‘Bonafide Love (I Don’t Know Why)’, and ‘Saddest Day’. In this episode, they talk about Wayne’s love of brown stew chicken, how his wife inspired his biggest hit, and how he became terrible at Spanish.
