The Hanover Grange Villa at the Tryall Club was on metaphorical fire on Tuesday night, as renowned UK-based jazz vocalist Mica Paris wowed lovers of the music genre in what was her second charity concert performance in Jamaica.

The fourth generation Jamaican's entire performance, dubbed 'Mica Paris Sings Ella', was dedicated to the Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald, who is known for hits such as Old McDonald, Dream a Little Dream of Me and Summertime.

The event was staged by English/Jamaican philanthropist Theresa Roberts, assisted by Richard Ferdinand of Tryall and friends, in aid of Sarah's Children and Women's Health Network.

For event host Theresa Roberts, it was her utmost pleasure to once again stage the annual fundraiser, on a night outside the weekend and still get maximum support.

"I knew we were gonna love it, because her voice is so special and I know about her Jamaican heritage and her grandparents, so I knew it was gonna be good, so I was glad when she said yes."
