MIAMI-BASED Trinidadian Sly Goodridge, businessman and entertainer, will return to his childhood community of Point Fortin in the next few days, in time for the annual Point Fortin Borough celebrations.
Goodridge, who has had thousands of theatrical projects, movies and musical productions under his belt including the movie Step up Revolution, the 1980’s television mega-hit series show, Miami Vice and the X-Factor with celebrities Simon Cowell, Britney Spears and LA Reid, says he has not only been steadfastly riding the wave of success with his work in the motion picture industry and stage, but also in the music business.
His hit song titled “Body Movur” is currently on MTV’s website as well as the video sharing network YouTube and other websites.
“‘Body Movur’ debuted on MTVArtist a few months ago and has been receiving rave reviews. I not only wrote the screenplay to the music video, but I also produced, directed and was one of several executive producers of the project,” Goodridge said.
The music video, one of the tracks on Goodridge’s CD entitled I Just Want to Love Ya, tells the story about a female athlete who plays basketball during the day and parties the nights away in the dance club.
“Her parents hired the private investigator (Goodridge) to check on her whereabouts. He follows her around with his entourage of police officers tracking her every move with the use of a digital camera. Goodridge and his officers enter the club and the officers confront the dancer,” he explains.
The talented Goodridge who migrated to the USA several years ago, is the president and chief executive officer of Goodridge Group Inc in the US with divisions DreamVizion Filmworks, DreamVizion Music and The Goodridge Group Music Publishing.
“Recently I was called to work on the premiere of the New World Symphony’s Laser Cat and also completed work on a Sony commercial. I am constantly on the move...
“I will be arriving home for Borough Day celebrations at Richie’s Bar in Point Fortin as I do every year, to enjoy my family and the culture of this country,” Goodridge said.
