San Pedro has a reputation for colorful nightlife and
snazzy live music. Recently, it seems that word of mouth has extended all
the way to the United States of America.
Last week, the island was proud to welcome musical
artist Linda Chorney, from New York City, who displayed her spectacular
vocal skills along with San Pedro's own local talent, Category X. Ms
Chorney's vacation in San Pedro also included diving, and experiencing
almost everything that the island had to offer.
Ms. Chorney, a professional singer for the last 15
years, broke the Top 40 (at number 31) Adult Contemporary Music list last
year with her hit album, "Living Alone." She is the talented author of
three CDs entitled, "My Blunt Instrument," "Racing with Reality" and her
latest creation "Me So Chorney." Well-traveled, Ms. Chorney has also
shared her vocal talent on visits to the Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Europe
Linda Chorney is currently writing a book entitled,
I only sleep with people who can't help me ("like diving
instructors"). She plans to include a chapter about her
favorite part of San Pedro. This, she states will read, "The most action
I got while in San Pedro was blowing on a chicken's butt at the Chicken
Drop held at Pier Lounge."
Linda Chorney left last Sunday to visit
the mainland, but wishes to thank the people of San Pedro for their
support during her visit. She would also like to thank her friend Tracey
Monahan from Continental Airlines, for enticing her to spend a fabulous
week with the friendly people of Ambergris Caye.
