Another award for Calypso Rose

An excited Mc Cartha Sandy-Lewis, better known in the calypso world as Calypso Rose, called from New York yesterday to inform Newsday of the latest award she received from both the Mayor and Commissioner of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

After performing at a UNICEF celebration concert there on Sunday, with well over 10,000 patrons in attendance, Rose related: “When I finished my one-hour stint, people started calling for more. I then gave them a calypso medley before ending off with my gospel. On leaving the stage, the Mayor and Commissioner of Lauderdale Lakes brought me back on stage and presented me with the keys to the City of Ft Lauderdale Lakes.” Rose said that there was an inscription on the award stating: Presented to Calypso Rose, renowned singing artiste, who has made a great contribution to the music world.”

This latest award adds to over 75 other awards, titles and accolades Rose has received to date. Her very first came in 1975 when she received the Medal of Merit Class 2: Trinidad and Tobago Government from the Order of Her Majesty the Queen of England. Rose is expected in Trinidad today for the “Icons in Concert” show which will come off this weekend at the Jean Pierre Complex. She is even more anxious to be performing at this concert since the last time she was in Trinidad, the planned “Rose in Concert” never came off. Rose stated that she was sure that this one is going to take place.
