They are the two that formed the miming duo, The Prophecy Brothers. When they mime to the soul-stirring gospel music, they take it to another level. They pour their heart and soul in it and as you watch them something happens, you can feel yourself being caught up in the message they are spreading through their well- coordinated moves.
Both are members of the Miracle Tabernacle Free Town Church of God of Prophecy in Clarendon. The duo was formed by one of the church's youth leaders.
"I never liked the idea of this form of art because it was unknown and uninteresting to me," said Smith, who originally started out with Omario Brown.
Barnes said they were a bit hesitant to introduce new things to the church "as the heads of the church are of the older generation and aren't that welcoming to new things. In addition, some have it to say that mime is demonic - from the sharp movements to the painted faces."
Barnes said he didn't give up on it but, instead, did a lot of research which showed that there was nothing wrong with it.
Feeling more comfortable in their minds about it, Barnes and Smith set about rehearsing. With inspiration coming from the group K&K Mime they were ready.
These days they just listen to a song and come up with their own moves. whatever they are doing seem to be working, as by the time they are through their audience erupts in moving applause.
Since their emergence, the Prophecy Brothers have performed at Devon House, churches in Kingston, Clarendon and St Catherine. They will next be in action at the Church of God of Prophecy's annual Arise Fest on October 31 at Hope Gardens.
