CLARKSDALE — Thursday night’s Local Talent Showcase provided a stage for four local groups to perform in conjunction with the weeklong Cultural Awareness activities held at Coahoma Community College. Attendees were treated to some youthful expressions of dance from the Jazzy Divas and the Sparkling Jewels, some blues classics from the Delta Blues Museum’s DBM band and the smooth jazz sounds of CCC’s Webmaster Ezra Howard and his band ZAMAR.

The Jazzy Divas interpretive style of dance started the show with a number set to Sam Cooke’s “A Long Time Coming” followed by the DBM band who performed four songs including “Hoochie Coochie Man” by Muddy Watters and Willie Dixon’s “Spoonful.”

The crowd was then treated to a lively hip-hop dance routine from the Baby Sparkling Jewels followed by another routine from the original Sparkling Jewels.

The show was finished with Howard’s saxophone-led ZAMAR highlighting the evening and closing out the week’s events being held on the college’s campus.

Cultural Awareness Week will conclude on Sunday evening when CCC’s Concert Choir holds its annual Spring Concert joined by several alumni members and highlighted by national gospel recording artist Chrystal Rucker, who will perform a gospel rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” among other well known favorites. This event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at New Covenant M.B. Church located at 340 Mississippi Avenue.
