Influences: Whitney Houston, Starship, Aretha Franklyn, Natalie Cole
From as early as 3 years old, I loved singing. I began my career in much the same way other young performers do in Barbados, in the Church. In 1989, I made my first public appearance at the Richard Stoute Teen Talent Competition and won the ‘Sing out Barbados’ Award for the best original song with a convincing win in the 1991 Richard Stout Teen Talent Contest. I continued to developed my gift of song with performances on the hotel circuit with groups; Calypso, High Energy, Secrets & Virtuosity. Regarded as one of the island’s most dynamic groups, Virtuosity set the stage on fire every performance. My stage presence and stunning vocal ability often brought comparisons to the North American pdivas.
In 2000, I joined one of the top bands in Barbados and the Caribbean, ‘Krosfyah’. This band gave me the opportunity to sing alongside Edwin Yearwood and Anthony “Rebel” Bailey as one of the lead vocalists. While with ‘Krosfyah’, I toured Amsterdam, New York, England and Holland to name a few, and a number of Caribbean Islands leaving a mark with every performance. In 2001, while touring, I wrote the ‘hit’ song “Fantasy”, which was featured on Krosfyah’s album ‘Kool Under Fire.’ The following year, while in New York, I released my first album entitled “Celebrating Life” produced by “PHAYTH Productions”.
In 2005, I took my talent to the ‘Norwegian Dream’, one of the 6 ‘Norwegian Cruise Liners’ for six (6) months. After returning, I continued captivating guests of the island’s premier Hotels; Sandy Lane, Royal Pavilion, Crane and Hilton, with the Band “Gravity”. In 2008, my Husband and I formed the company “Sapphire Entertainment” dedicated to providing entertainment of the highest standard. As lead vocalist, I perform numbers from yester-year to present with an eclectic repertoire and growing fan base that include; Sassafras, Nishi & The Cliff Restaurant. In 2010, I performed for British TV and radio presenter and former singer, Gloria Hunniford’s 70th birthday party. It was there that I met and had the honor of performing with a musical icon for five decades and Europe's first authentic rock 'n' roll star, Cliff Richard. We meshed instantly and I have become a regular part of Cliff Richard’s Entertainment.
