Upon the culmination of a tremendously successful Trinidad Carnival season and Allez Tour, Saint Lucia’s Teddyson John (TJ) is expressing his sincerest gratitude to all who shared this historic journey with him. Having departed Saint Lucia on January 1st, 2016, TJ has since graced the stages of well over sixty events, delivering ground-breaking and pore-raising performances.
TJ also gave several television and radio interviews on some of Trinidad and Tobago’s most widely viewed and listened-to stations including CNC3 News, Synergy TV, Slam 100.5 and others. TJ further made an educational tour, visiting several schools, all in his aim of spreading his uplifting and positive message to all walks of life.
As a favourite for the season and also for the International Soca Monarch (ISM) competition, TJ was sure to deliver a remarkable performance on February 5th at the Haseley Crawford Stadium when he appeared in position number thirteen. TJ wowed the audience as he flawlessly executed one of the best vocally and musically poised performances of the night. Despite not having placed in the top three, Teddyson’s reviews were high from all intrigued by his performance on the night.
TJ, who returned to Saint Lucia on Monday, has this to say: “From the bottom of my heart I want to truly say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone. The past month and a half has been life-changing for me and for my career. I want to thank all fans, supporters, well-wishers, my team, everyone who voted, everyone who prayed, all of Saint Lucia, the Caribbean and everyone from their part of the world who stuck with me. I will continue to deliver great music and so everyone can look forward to even more amazing music from me.”
As he gets set for his performance at the 25th edition of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival on Friday May 6, TJ is already scheduled to make several domestic, regional and international appearances for the remainder of 2016. Fans can catch him at various performances and continue to share the journey with him.
