School Soca Monarch
Location : Trinidad & Tobago
Posted : Mon 28 February 2011 : 11:49:13 PM

While many worry about the future of the art forms in Trinidad and Tobago, two newcomers have emerged to reassure the safety of soca and calypso. The Flavorite Supreme Ice Cream National School Soca Monarch Competition 2011, Primary and Secondary School Categories took place on 25th February, with promising winners in both categories.

Sergio Camejo of the Sacred Heart Boys' Primary School is now the Primary School Junior Soca Monarch, after sending the crowd into a frenzy with his composition Come In Front; his commanding stage presence left both judges and spectators in awe. Second place went to Aaron Duncan of Newtown Boys’ RC, with his composition The Baby of Soca, and the third spot to Timel Rivas of Rosary Boys’ RC, who sang We Time Again.

The Secondary School leg of the competition saw Marq Pierre as the eventual winner, with his rendition of One Way To The Top. Pierre, a student of North Eastern College, delivered a strong and stern message directed at students, advising them of the importance of school and education. Second place went to Anthony Batson of Couva West Secondary, who performed Show Love, with third place going to Carvel Gorden of Bishop’s High School with her well-received tribute to calypso royalty Calypso Rose, entitled Red Hot.

The competition saw a broad representation of fresh and creative talent. Among those who participated were Cassandra Belfon, daughter of Denise Belfon, and Nihilett Blackman-Thornhill, daughter of Abi Blackman.
