Jamaican Gospel Singer Electrifies Local Church

Jamaican gospel singer and song writer Carey Sayles last Saturday afternoon (22 July, 2017) electrified a capacity audience at the George Town Seventh-day Adventist Church as the feature artiste in a three-hour gospel concert.
Mr. Sayles was in Cayman for a free performance in support of the church’s youth ministry.
The packed church clapped, waved, sang and otherwise showed their delight in response to the high-energy style of artiste Sayles. The musical experience as he belted out several medleys and songs over the course of the afternoon’s musical extravaganza was made even more moving by interspersed snippets of his life story.
That story is one of particular determination and deep faith despite often devastating obstacles, rising today as he has to the heights of a musical career and establishing himself as a professional in the Jamaica public service.
Growing up in the Arnett Garden area of Trench Town, he survived to tell the tale of several close death experiences: “I saw men killed and most of my friends turning to guns,” he said, “but because of my mother’s and stepfather’s care and guidance, and the protection of my Heavenly Father, I was able to resist the forces of evil.”
So instead of succumbing to the pressures of an environment that has had such deadly impacts on young lives, today he is a graduate of the Mandeville-headquartered Northern Caribbean University, with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He is now a supervisor at the Jamaica National Housing Trust.
