Erphaan Alves stages virtual Grateful event, launches EA merchandise
Every year Erphaan Alves says thank you to his fans and friends in the soca industry with a charity concert entitled "Grateful.
This year, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Alves will still express his gratitude with a virtual edition of his show.
In order to adapt and maintain a high-quality production, Alves has spared no expense and has recruited veteran video extraordinaire Walt Lovelace and Logging Tape Media to produce his first virtual event.
Alves' fans will be entertained by a “Grateful” set that includes all the hits, past and present as well as some classical tribute to some of the legends that paved the way for this Soca Global” generation.
The concert will be a continuation of last year's 2019 show where EA and his Team literally floated the stage above the bar at the Anchorage, Chaguaramas.
There will be guest appearances from Alves' collaborators through the years as well.
Although this year would not be a ticketed event, local and international viewers can log on to EA’s social media platforms to donate to the EA Grateful Foundation which supports the music and arts programs at his alma mater - St. George’s College.
November is indeed “Grateful” month as the EA “Memories” track, a first release from the “Grateful” Mixtape hosted by DJ Private Ryan, has been shaking up the airwaves on local radio.
In addition to the music, Alves will launch his EA merchandise apparel line for both male and female fans.
Grateful will be aired tonight on TTT and online on the D Music App” at 7.30 pm.
