After spending two weeks in Barbados preparing for her debut concert in Washington DC last weekend, Guyanese singing sensation Timeka Marshall has just released her latest video for the single “Feel Fah” featuring Busy Signal. Timeka, who rose to fame in 2006 after winning a jingle competition in her homeland, demonstrates her vocal range while sparring with Busy Signal on yet another single produced by Shane Brown of Jukeboxx Productions.
“I am really excited about this video. It has given me the opportunity to work with some very talented people in the business and I thoroughly enjoyed shooting it,” Timeka revealed. “Feel Fah is a sassy, sexy, energetic song and the collaborations that went into the production of this video reflect that.”
This is the fourth video released by the young singer and can be seen on myspace, facebook, YouTube andwww.pyramidartists.com. Shot on location in Kingston Jamaica the production team included the likes of Jamaican director Gareth Cobran and accomplished choreographer Tanisha Scott best known for her sassy, high energy moves in several of Sean Paul's music videos.
After winning the jingle competition, Timeka released her first single and video 'We Should Separate' which was shot in Kingston, Jamaica. Earlier this year, she brought out “All Night” under the direction of Jay Will and followed up with “Hush” the video medley combined with Peetah Morgan’s “Secrets” on JukeBoxx’s Indiscretions rhythm.
As a part of her development as a singer, Timeka’s time in Barbados was spent doing just that with holistic vocal performance coach, Lisa Howell of Sing Vocal Arts. Every morning at six, they could be found at Worthing Beach going through the paces of the endurance and strength training aspect of an overall programme which focused on Timeka’s mental attitude and physical well-being.
“In those two weeks I learnt so much from Lisa about building up my endurance, lyrical interpretation, stage presence, singing and breathing techniques,” Timeka explained. “It was challenging. There was a lot of hard work involved; it’s not all glitz and glamour, it’s a 24-hour job and has to become a way of life so many times you have to sacrifice personal time but if you love it, you go after it.”
While on the island, Timeka’s busy schedule also included a photo shoot where she got the opportunity to sport some of the latest Oakley eyewear as part of her endorsement deal with the company. She also performed with labelmate Philip 7 and the band Masala at the popular night spot McBride’s in St. Lawrence Gap.
