Our God is an awesome God and today we were reminded of that when Rihanna appeared on ‘The X Factor (UK)’. Cracking the skies, the Great One sent a mighty storm across the seas and freed the latent talented hidden within the Bajan to break free as she delivered the best performance of her entire career to date.
Belting her hit song ‘Diamonds’ for the first time on UK television, Rihanna left her fans stunned by her showing. Yes, those of us who often label her as this generation’s Diana Ross were taken back to the diva’s 1983 Central Park concert where she also impressed her critics by singing in the rain.

When I criticise Rihanna for her lacklustre performances, it is because I know that beneath the makeup, tattoos and nonchalant persona, there is an artist with real potential. Today, however, she finally let that talent shine and proved that she can be good with the right direction. Reach for the stars, Rihanna!
