WATCH: This rendition of the national anthem has upset the President


    The rendition of the national anthem (which can be viewed at 33:30 in the above video) at the closing ceremony of CARIFESTA last Sunday has been taken to task by the President.

    The anthem was performed by a singer in operatic style with woodwind instruments initially providing the music.

    According to President Paula Mae Weekes, the anthem must be sung to its original music and no introduction or coda can be added.

    The President says the anthem, like the national flag and coat of arms, must be treated with utmost respect.
