Mighty Kel claims Junior Calypso title for 2014

For Roshard “Mighty Kel” Tittle (See Front Page), winning the secondary competition of the Junior Calypso Monarch competition is one step closer to realizing his dream of singing calypso on a national scale.{{more}}

Although it was his first time in the competition, Tittle managed to earn the judges’ nod with an exceptional stage performance of his calypso, “Let’s join hands.”

“[I feel] good, great,” said the 19-year-old about his win.

The fifth form graduate of the North Union Secondary School expressed his desire to continue singing calypso in the near future, by becoming a member of a local tent.

“As a child growing up, I have a lot of talent to sing, dance, act, model and interact with people,” Tittle said about himself.

Until then, Tittle hopes to attend the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College in the upcoming school year, where he will study subjects in the area of hospitality.

Second place was awarded to Norrisa “Miss G” Gerald from the Sandy Bay Secondary School, who urged young individuals not to follow bad company, in her song, “Party Bandwagon.”

Despite having technical difficulties that required her to restart her performance, Thomas Saunders Secondary School student, Kristiana “Singing Kristy” Christopher placed third with her song, “Change.”

In the 2013 competition, Christopher walked away with both titles in the primary Junior Calypso and Junior Soca Monarch competitions.

Other competitors in the secondary school Junior Calypso Monarch competition included Johnroy “Mad King” Haywood of Troumaca Secondary School with “Cry of the innocent,” Gillian “Feisha” Smart of the St Joseph’s Convent Kingstown with “School Uniform,” Shane “Shaney” Wynne of Bishop’s College Kingstown with “Foundation” and Brandon “C-Four” Frederick of the St Vincent Grammar School with “Today’s Calypsonians.”(BK)
