The Love Movement’s 50 Year Journey – Love So Amazing
This year The Love Movement celebrates its 50th Anniversary of “Healing Hearts and Changing Lives, one Note at a Time”. Gratefully they are well known and recognized in Trinidad and Tobago as The Love Movement Trinity of Choirs. The Love Movement has been honoured on many occasions, both Nationally and abroad for their tremendous contributions to Social Development, Community Service and the Culture of Trinidad and Tobago.
The Love Movement’s Ministry of Love began in 1972, when Bernadette Laughlin-Scott, Founder and Musical Director, recognizing a need, decided to use her God-given musical talents to raise funds for the less fortunate, while spreading the Gospel message of God’s unconditional love. What started out fifty years ago, with a group of fifteen young women, members of her Church Choir, has over the years grown into this Trinity of Choirs. From a small choir over five decades ago, to the life force of hundreds of young people, The Love Movement is a ray of hope and a light in the darkness of today’s world! It is a source of fellowship for many teenagers, seeking a sense of purpose and an opportunity for artistic expression.
An Entity, motivated by love, is this Trinity of Choirs with its 170 members; the Senior Choir, The Love Movement Republic Bank Youth Outreach Group and the Lights of Love Children’s Choir. The Youth Outreach Programme born in 1991, offers Holistic and Social Development to all members, through the medium of the Performing Arts and Spiritual Guidance. This has helped to positively change the lives of thousands of “At Risk” Youth. This mentoring programme continues to help many of our disadvantaged young people who desperately need that guidance and direction in life! The success of The Love Movement’s mission to “Heal Hearts and Change Lives, one Note at a Time”, is evident at their many concerts. The creative potential of its members is molded into visually stunning performances with costumes, choreography and theatre, compared by many, to the Best of Broadway.
To mark this Golden Anniversary, The Love Movement will host a series of concerts entitled “Love so Amazing” at the Queen’s Hall from Friday October 7th to Sunday October 16th 2022, which will feature all three choirs.“Love So Amazing” will be a Concert for the entire family! The programme will begin with the entire cast singing The Love Movement’s theme song,“Movement of Love ”, followed by songs of Praise and Thanksgiving to God for His many blessings. The second half of the show will feature the members of The Love Movement Republic Bank Youth Outreach Group, with selections of popular songs from the movies entitled “Cinemagic”, with effective and exciting choreography by Stephanie Carrington and Jade Jones. These two gifted youth choreographers have grown up in The Love Movement from the Children’s Choir – Lights of Love to the Youth Outreach Group and now the Senior Choir.
The Senior Choir will then take its audiences down memory lane with some of the world’s favourite and nostalgic songs from Broadway Musicals; “50 Years of Broadway”. The wonderful and intricate choreography for this section was the brain-child of two members of the Senior Choir; Anneisha Skerritt-Wells and Janelle Spencer-Lewis. Anneisha was a founder member of The Lights of Love and has been part of The Love Movement in all three choirs over the years. The Lights of Love Children’s Choir will showcase selections from Disney’s most recent and popular Children’s Musical “Encanto” that took the world by storm. The excitement and fun of the children at rehearsals is infectious and will surely be a treat for the younger members of the audience. The Love Movement will pay tribute to the late Desmond Waithe, by singing two of the many Calypsos he arranged for them over the years,“Desmond was a remarkable arranger both for pan and for voice!” says Bernadette, “An amazing musician!” The choreography for these calypsos was created by the very talented Heather Henderson-Gordon.
