‘Love Forever’, a celebration of singer Cynthia Schloss’s music, takes place at the Alibi in St Andrew Wednesday evening.

Several performers — backed by the Pon Fire Band — will do renditions of her most popular songs.

Pam Hall, Nina Karl and Errol Dean are among the artists billed for the show which is being promoted by disc jockey Michael Thompson.

“She was awesome, truly a songbird,” said Thompson, who first met Schloss in the 1970s.

At the time, Schloss was a member of Total Togetherness, a vocal group that included Beres Hammond, Ruddy Thomas, and Morvin Brooks.The group was managed by popular sound system operator Winston ‘Merritone’ Blake, Schloss’s future husband.

Love Forever was arguably the biggest hit for Schloss who died in 1999 at age 51.

Surround Me With Love and If I Didn’t Know are some of her other songs that made local charts.

‘Love Forever’ will also be broadcast today as part of Thompson’s Live Tuesday show on Kool FM.
