SHE’S emulating her father’s distinguished career in Calypso music.

Terri Lyons, the daughter of ten-time Road March winner Super Blue, has become only the fifth women to take the Calypso Monarch crown.


This year marked the reintroduction of artists singing two songs at the finals at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain on Thursday night.

Only four other women have won the Calypso Monarch competition – McCartha “Calypso Rose” Lewis, Sandra Des “Singing Sandra” Vignes-Millington, Denyse Plummer and Karene Asche.

Women swept the top three positions with Asche in second and Heather McIntosh in third.

Lyons is the sister of Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez.
