Entertainer Terencia 'TC' Coward bravely challenged fellow entertainers to give money to The Bahamas to aid in their relief efforts.

Performing during the first ever National Mediathon in Barbados held on Sunday, September 8, TC cut her music to appeal to all entertainers to send monetary donations to The Bahamas now.

She said that she had already made her personal financial pledge and challenged each singer, songwriter, entertainer to make a pledge as well of "a minimum on BBD $100 (USD $50)".

 

To raise awareness of the Mediathon a slew of artistes lent their voices and faces to the call for Rise Agaian Bahamas. Videos were submitted by Edwin Yearwood, Alison Hinds, Vincy's Skinny Fabulous, Trinidad's Denise 'Saucy Wow' Belfon, and Bahamian Tara 'Bimini Gal' Lynne along with many others.

Barbados continues to raise funds for The Bahamas though the Mediathon officially ended around 11pm on Sunday having just fallen short of the BBD $500,000 target. However online contributions continued for 48 hours - Monday, September 9 and on to Tuesday, September 10.
