Lorna is undoubtedly a crowd-puller. I suppose that could be the main reason to
bring her. I feel the GOA purpose should not be to aim for more money but earn
some profit and, at the same time, help promote young talent. Bringing rising
stars from Goa will help them get exposure in the Goan diaspora.Yesterday, I
listened to Tatum's tribute song to her parents, Ophelia and Bab Peter. I was
noved by the lyrics and the voice. I have heard her for the first time and I
hope ti download the album. Maybe Goans in Goa and Mumbai heard her, but giving
such a talented singer an opportinity to show her singing power to Toronto
Goand will definitely boost her confidence.Two years ago, O Luv cane here,
though I think he got pushed behind because of Palomi's overwelming presence. I
didn't attend Viva Goa last year, and doubt if I wil be going this year.Last
year, Lorna cane here for a privste shiw billed as Adios Lorna, supposedly
meaning her last presence in Toronto at least.To read a bigger discussion on
this, go to the Tiartist -- Fan Group Facebook page.
But how much can we hear her? M

But the grassroots popularity Lorna still has flies in the face of all such
