Stacy Ramcharan lets her voice be heard

“I believe pageantry is a celebration of beauty, beauty with a purpose. It is one of the platforms that give young women an opportunity to let their voices be heard on various issues we are facing as a developing country which may need special attention,” says Stacy Ramcharan.

Guyana’s crown jewel

It should be the dream of every Guyanese to visit the Kaieteur Falls. It represents the true beauty of Guyana in its entirety: the green that hugs the snaking black waters of the Potaro River, which become golden brown then mists of white.

ShaMain’s evolution

Shamain Patrice Greaves, stage name ShaMain, grew up surrounded by music. A resident of Maryland, USA by way of Florida and Georgetown, Guyana, ShaMain’s imminent release, ‘The Evolution of Me’, an extended play (EP) scheduled to drop this Fall, has songs like “Beautiful”, described on her website as “a smooth anthem ripe with building hooks, sultry vocals and the type of pulsating guitar medley that will have fans hypnotized from the gate.” Then there is “Lover (would you be mine),” said to be a “sexy throwback to the hard electro dance groove of the 80s pop textures”, and “Gimme,” written by ShaMain and produced by heavy hitter Tone P, which “taps into a body moving Latin/Jazz groove”, while “Cry Mi A River”, the website says, “gives [a] taste of Caribbean flavour.” In 2012 she launched her first music project, ‘My Diary’.
