THOUSANDS congregated on Sunday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown, for a Thanksgiving Service in celebration of the life of the late calypso icon, Geoffrey Phillips also known as “Mighty Rebel”.

The Mighty Rebel died on Thursday May 31, 2018 at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), after a protracted period of illness. He was 72. He leaves to mourn, not only his wife Juliet Statia-Phillips and children, but other relatives and indeed a nation of calypso lovers who over the years had come to admire him and developed a deep appreciation for his music.

The Sports Hall was packed to capacity with thousands of mourners and sympathisers, who had gone to join the bereaved family members in paying their last respects and tribute to their favourite Calypso King; a friend, father, brother, mentor and confidante whose life was being celebrated.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
