Freeport, Grand Bahama - Today the entertainment
industry recorded the loss another giant. Franklyn 'Frankie' Lightbourne,
guitarist extraordinaire, singer and all around nice guy.
performed on many
stages with local and world renowned performing artists from Smokey 007
to Teddy Pendergrass, and giving his life to the
entertainment industry, Frankie was always a constant professional.
Always on time,
never un-prepared, and always willing to go the extra mile to share his
entertainment community and those that heard his music, will truly miss this "Man among Men."
I would like to salute his family
and thank them for lending us Frankie,
his talents, time and spirit, and for being
patient with him as he bore us on his shoulders artistically and
emotionally. There are so many good things to be said about Frankie's legacy of love and music.
On behalf of
the members of the entertainment community, and all those that loved and
enjoyed Frankie I would like to offer condolences to his family and friends.
We feel and acknowledge your loss.
With a heavy heart,
Grand Bahama Entertainers Musicians and Artists Association (GBEMAA)
