Star Child’s Song In Memory Of Murder Victims

February 14, 2013

Murder victim Haile Outerbridge leaves behind a legacy of music, including one song he recorded in memory of past murder victims. In a ‘dub’ for OGS Genesis, he paid tribute to the island’s murder victims and called for Bermuda to be a better place.

The 34-year-old — who was killed last month — was a regular fixture on the island’s reggae music scene, performing under the name ‘Star Child’.

Audio of Mr Outerbridge’s ‘dub’:

The song lyrics said, “Although you are gone you can’t be replaced, we see you like a star shining out of space. Although we know you are in a better place, we still cry tears when we see your face…we love them so.”

“We need to make Bermuda a better place….although times are hard we have to hold the faith,” he sang. “Don’t let the devil rule your destiny, cause Jah will set you free.”

The song lists names of past murder victims including Perry Puckerin, Shaundae Jones, Gary ‘Fingas’ Cann, Jason Lightbourne, and Kumi Harford. It also lists people not killed by gun violence including traffic collision victim Earl Ingemann and the late Nelson Bascome and Dame Lois Browne Evans.

Jamaican reggae star Luciano sends sympathies to Mr Outerbridge’s family at the recent concert:

On 23 January 2013, Mr Outerbridge and Ricco Furbert were chased into Belvin’s on Happy Valley Road and gunned down, in a brutal double murder that shocked the community.

Two men were arrested in connection with the murders and subsequently released on bail. Speaking last month, Police Media Manager Dwayne Caines said: “It is important to note; an arrest does not mean the matter is closed, and we urgently need people to come forward with any information that can assist.”

Anyone with any information regarding the murders is encouraged to contact the Serious Crimes Unit on 247-1739 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers Bermuda hotline on 800-8477.

    First all I will like to give thanks and praise to the most high Jah Rastafari.

    I will like to include Haile was a example of change, in life we have all had are obstacles but when you seek inside your self you will find who you really are. He was a good father, a coach, and entertainer, also a very hardworking family man who was ready to make a change in life for the better of his child.
    Bermudians what I am trying to say is if we bypass the negative and seek more into ourselves we can make a change for the future. But as long as we seek into the negative energy we will be seeing alot of problems arising on this 21 squar mile Island who is going to affect your children, your siblings, your love ones if we don't seek positive energy.

    I will like to conclude this message by stating in life there have being alot of people who have mourned for many of reasons. Financially, physically, mentally. But if we don't come together to heal this beautiful island of paradise then we will never change.

    I have not lost a family member so I can't speak for how you feel but I feel for all who has lost someone through violence, freak accidents, many of things abuse, and the list go's on.

    But when you take someones life the ones who hurting are the families of the lost loved ones, the person who pulled the triggers family, your children, and the list can go on and on.

    In closing I will like to say look to the lord in prayer and JAH GUIDE AND PROTECT OUR ISLAND BERMUDA.

    Bless

      So true, but let me correct you on something - he wasn't ready to make a change, he had already made that change a couple of years ago. He even too kit further last month when he gave himself completely to God!

      As Bermudians we must not let his memory nor his lyrical songs fade away!!

    He was a good one and will truly be missed. Know this that Jah nah sleep and he knows all things and those who think they got away haven't gotten away with nothing because in the end Jah is the judge of it all. Those who feel it know and the same pain you gave to someone in that way you too will experience in life and the sins fall on your children too. Once we know the ways of Jah we can understand life and the respect, love and value we need to have for it. Jah Bless!!

    I plead with the parents (mothers and fathers) of these "thugs", take a stand! If you know what your chlidren are in to put a stop to it!!!! If you don't know, then find out. If you need assistance - it is there, reach out. Don't let pride rob you of your 'babies' either in jail or dead. God has given you a gift - it is up to you to do right by God and not let the devil win out! YOUR children are at risk, YOUR island is at risk. TAKE A STAND - NOW!!!!!!

    SIP Haile!!!

    You will never be forgotten. I thank God for what you have left behind. Your music is a legacy that will live on forever!! Not a day goes by that I don't hear your album, full of positive songs and great messages! The island needs to hear music like this. The producer needs to push it out to the rest of the island.
    These young black men who struggle need a CHANCE! To the schools, Cedarbridge ESPECIALLY, stop expelling them and TEACH them the right way. Don't dismiss them so easily!!! You're setting them up for failure, or worse - DEATH! They come from broken homes. Last thing you should be doing is robbing them of their education because they have social issues. Im just saying. Its a cop-out to our society! What hope do they really have?!
    Haile, I miss you so much and love you dearly! The pain is all to real. It'll never fade.
    RIP to all those who have lost their lives to gun violence. Out of many 1 people!!!!!!!!!!!
    WAKE UP BERMUDA
