Published: Friday | December 6, 2013 Comments 0

Romain Virgo has serious plans for the 14th annual staging of Boom Energy Drink GT Taylor's Christmas Reggae Extravaganza. Virgo, who will be performing on the event for the fourth time, is eagerly anticipating show night.

"It's one of the shows that has really stood out over the years. I look forward to it every year, not only to perform on the show, but I also like to watch the performance of other artistes on the show. It's one of the shows that has been growing over the years, and I'm happy to be a part of this growth," he said.

Virgo said that he will also be performing with his own band.

"It will be the first time that I will get to perform on a major show at home with my own band. It's good that GT is willing to set up things to allow me to work with my band, as this will help me to be more comfortable on stage. I plan to go out there and sing from my heart. I plan to give the people a 150 per cent when I touch the stage on Christmas night," he said.

Romain's band is called The Unit.

"We call the band The Unit because we work as a team. There is a oneness about how we work together. When I perform with them, it's not about Romain Virgo performing with a back-up band; it's about all of us working together to give the people a good performance everytime," Virgo said.

The former Rising Stars winner wants to encourage the public to give Boom Energy Drink GT Taylor's Christmas Reggae Extravaganza its full support.

"I want the patrons to watch the whole show and support all the artistes on the line-up. I am going to give them a wonderful show. I am going to spend more time on stage this year," he said.

Romain Virgo recently released a music video for his single, Beautiful.

He is also promoting two new singles, a cover of Michael Bolton's classic Soul Provider, which was produced by Silly Walks Discotheque on the 'Brighter Days' rhythm. The other single is a track called Baby Mother, on the Vikings Production imprint.
