A meeting between eleven-time Grammy award-winning American gospel artiste, Pastor Shirley Caesar and President Anthony Carmona was cancelled.
The sit-down was scheduled for 11.30 am yesterday at the Office of the President, however, waiting members of the media were informed that the songstress had cancelled the meeting because she was feeling unwell.
Newsday understands Caesar wanted the meeting postponed to another day this week but the Office of the President said they were unsure if that could be achieved. Attempts made by Newsday to get further comment from the Office of the President were unsuccessful.
The 78-year-old gospel star, known as the “First Lady of Gospel Music,” was scheduled to perform at the Centre of Excellence, Macoya, last night at the Trinidad Revival Independence Concert, hosted by religious non-Governmental organisation Men on the Move.
Calls made to Men on the Move’s administrative department to get further comment on Caesar’s health condition, went unanswered.
