Local Artistes have come together to breathe life into an old tradition, as they seek to raise funds for their ailing friend.
The Musical Koudemain was the brainchild of Nicole David TC Brown and others who have mobilized St. Lucian entertainers to perform at a benefit concert for Francis Leebo De Lima. The proceeds are expected to fund his medical expenses.
The producer and sound engineer was diagnosed with cancer several weeks ago and since then has been undergoing aggressive treatment, both here and overseas.
Close friend of Leebo Christopher Hunte informs that the event is set for Friday at the Cultural Centre Grounds. It comes in the lead up to a larger scale event dubbed Leeboration Day slated for the Daren Sammy Cricket ground in the coming weeks.
Hunte has commended St Lucian artistes who have put their egos aside to assist the cause of a man who has touched the lives of many. He believes that the display of generosity can grow into a movement that can help the cause of many other St Lucians who are in need of costly but life saving treatment.
Hunte says Leebo’s friends are determined to do whatever it takes to save his life.
