Nooks’s tears brings prayers


EMBATTLED singer George Nooks gave a well-received, gospel-laced performance at Musical Rhapsody held at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on Sunday.Nooks, 56, took the audience, comprising children, to church and had them in a “praise and worship-esque” singalong. His set included God Will Take Care You, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, When I Think About Jesus, and God Is Standing By.

However, during his performance of Ride Out Your Storm, he broke down in tears. Unable to carry the song, his in-tune audience rose to their feet singing and encouraged him in applause until he was able to compose himself to belt out the remaining lyrics.

“I felt their love… It was unconditional. This evening wasn’t easy as everybody saw, I broke down a couple of times. However, they treated me with respect… like a human being. I want them to pray for me,” Nooks told Outa Jamaica.
