I was born in Trinidad and Tobago but now currently live in Israel with my long-life partner for over 20 years. Coming from a large family and an even larger extended family I am the eldest of 9 wonderful brothers and sisters. I have one daughter, Joelle, who constantly inspires me with her strength and courage that it makes me wonder if I really birthed this child and a wonderful grandson, Jaheem, who continues to make me proud as he grows into a confident and well assured young man.
Throughout my life I have found myself experiencing the highs and lows life has to offer but fortunately my FANGA has always given me the strength to never ask “Why me Lord?” Instead I have learnt to deal with each challenge as it comes and try to use it as a source of inspiration to uplift myself and those around me. From the death of my mother, to my financial downfall and lately my survival of breast cancer I have been forced to dig deeper within myself and try to rediscover my true purpose in this life. This in itself has brought me to produce my first original album, Hillary Sargeant FANGA, and to pursue my music with renewed vitality and vision that was definitely the root of success for my last show, The Trilogy of FANGA 2010.
So I hope this Blog will also help you to find your FANGA as it’s not meant to be me preaching to you or giving global advice about issues that I prefer to leave to the experts. Instead it’s an opportunity for me to share with you what my personal challenges and experiences have been throughout my life and hopefully offer you a different perspective of viewing the daily trials you are also faced with. So once again thank you for giving me the opportunity to share with you and I wish you all the best that life has to offer…….FANGA!
