An ageless crooner
By DAVID BREWSTER

Kelwyn Hutcheon, the sweet ageless crooner, was the star of the evening at the recent Carols By Candlelight Show on the President's grounds.

You should have seen the youths rushing up to him for autographs. And you should have seen his "Pepsodent smile", as he used cuatro maestro Robert Munro's back for support to sign dozens of them. The response to his lyrics was so heartening that it was clear the man has started to win the hearts of a new generation.

Hutcheon got a similar response at the Ansa McAL show where he performed with Scrunter's group Sabor, another clear indication that there is still hope out there, and today's new breed still appreciates beautiful music from a beautiful singer.

Think of an ole time Trini Christmas and you think of Kelwyn Hutcheon, who is as Trinidadian as crab and callaloo and the steelpan. It's no exaggeration to say his voice has been linked here with the festive season, similar to that of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. And now in 2001, to the surprise of even Hutcheon himself, his signature Christmas hits "Kiss me For Christmas" (Pat Castagne) and "Oh, I Wish I Was a Child Again" (Stephen Ferreira) still continue to inject the spirit of Christmas in our souls and remain just as refreshing as when we first heard them decades ago.
