The rain however caused some disruption to the power supply which appeared to have either been taken off as a precautionary measure or knocked out by the deluge of water that soaked the football field of the Warner Park Stadium.
With not many places of shelter to run to, many fans opted to remain in position as Braxton continued singing and performing, despite, at one point, there being no amplified sound.
Braxton did however express concern about being electrocuted but at no point was she at risk of danger, as the sound crew did everything to facilitate her performance while also making certain that all safety steps were being followed.
There was no disappointment from the fans however as they sang along to every one of the many hit songs pelted out by Braxton. The rain finally subsided and Braxton took the decision to leave the stage; and headed into the audience, where she was mobbed by her loving fans who reached out to touch and shake her hand. It was a dream come true for many who said they felt rewarded to have finally met their idol.
Dressed in a black sexy and teasing outfit, Braxton challenged a group of local men to join her back on stage in a show of gyration, much to the delight of the crowd. She also took the opportunity to pay a small tribute to the late Whitney Houston, who died a few months ago in the United States.
Also performing last night was the veteran Roberta Flack, who rolled back the years with some of her classic hits, such as Forever Young. However, some fans expressed overall disappointment in her performance.
R&B and Hip Hop artiste, Omarion, capped off the evening but at that time the audience had practically disappeared except for a few hundred curious patrons who remained.
Organizers however would have been disappointed with the small crowd, (2,500-3,000), that was in attendance, unlike the sold out audience the night before.
The St. Kitts Music Festival ran from Thursday 28th – Saturday 30th June, 2012. It was first hosted in 1996 and staged at the former Fort Thomas Hotel in Basseterre.
