The year 2018 has ended on a very high note for Antigua and Barbuda’s reigning Calypso Monarch, Queen Thalia King, who added another crown to her growing collection over the weekend.
The popular Calypsonian walked away with the top prize in the 6th edition of the Queen of Queens, a regional female calypso competition in Montserrat that is now considered a premier calypso event in that country.
She competed against the likes of Queen Karene Asche of Trinidad and Tobago, who won the title in 2017, Chrystal BecklesHolder of Barbados, Menell Delices of Saint Lucia, Shaunelle McKenzie of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Keturah George of Grenada and Roxanne Webster who represented Anguilla.
Thalia, who is also the reigning Leeward Islands Calypso Monarch, said she is extremely proud of her most recent accomplishment. “It’s a very proud feeling winning and being able to represent my country and I am just happy,” King said.
She further explained that the show was a great one with all the contenders putting their best foot forward. King believes her overall performance and the way in which her songs were delivered gave her the competitive edge. “I showed the people that I love what I do. I did not just go out there to sing, I went out there with diction, clarity and performance. That is why I am so proud of myself,” the newly-crowned queen said.
The winner of the regional competition took home a US$4,000 cash prize. Firstrunner-up US$2,500 and third place received US$1,500. A consolation prize of US$400 was also awarded to all non-placing participants
