Six compete in regional Calypso Competition

The winner, in a ZJB report said, “I’m feeling great, I just came down to Montserrat to defend my crown and to do as best as I could to let my music speak and to make sure that when you left here that the sound would resound in people’s spirit and in their soul.”

Crystal Cummings 1That was Crystal Cummings Beckles from Barbados who retained the Regional Female Calypso title.

Beckles out-performed her six competitors last Saturday, December 20, 2014 at Festival City.

She sang two self-penned songs “Enough is enough” which speaks about the issue of domestic violence and her second song “One day” expresses her hope for a better world. About her songs, she said: “…especially “One Day” and “Enough is Enough” is something that’s happening all over the world and especially in the Caribbean too. Domestic violence is a very serious topic and I just feel great, I feel really good to come back and to win again.”

Meanwhile Montserrat’s former calypso monarch Sylvina Candi Malone grabbed First runner-up. She said she is proud of herself, “because I have been going through a rough period with my vocals and everything and tonight speaks for itself, I wait for finals (calypso contest) now to really come out and put a very good performance down.”

The First runner up Sylvina Candi Malone received $7000.00, while Second runner up Minnelli Dulcie from St. Lucia received $5,000.00.  The winner defended her title and took away $9,000.00.

Minneli was modest with her placement: If that’s what the judge’s saw and they saw I deserve third place I think I can just go for it and just smile and have fun, have a drink. Rrom the first round it was tight enough that would bring me to the second round, maybe from the second round maybe I fell somewhere. I’m not sure, but these are judges, they know what they are looking for, so it’s fair To them it’s fair so for me it’s fair too,” she concluded.

The other calypsonians who all revceived $500.00 for their participation were: Thilia King from Antigua and Barbuda, Rebecca Webster (Queen B) – Anguilla, Jacqueline Leader (Singing Jackie) – St. Kitts & Nevis, and Shaunelle McKenzie representing St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
