Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago: Carnival Institute of Trinidad and Tobago, also known as Carnival Institute and Regional Carnival (CIRC), has introduced the general public about the rising and talented female singers – Nadia Batson.
The details about the singer was shared during the ‘Music Monday’ segment presented by the CIRC. “On Music Monday, we feature one of our rising and talented female singers with smooth as-velvet vocals, none other than soca artiste Nadia Batson,” CIRC mentioned.
Carnival Institute of Trinidad and Tobago stated that Nadia was born on December 7, 1976, in Port of Spain and grew up in the community of Barataria. Nadia began writing songs at the tender age of eight and performing Muslim ballads while attending her primary school St Joseph TML.
In addition to this, it informed that in her teenage years, she became a member of the all-female group Silhouette, who won the popular Party Time Show with their acapella version of En Vogue’s remake, “Yesterday” (originally sung by the Beatles).
It also outlined that Nadia’s professional career as an entertainer began at the age of seventeen. She was a member of two iconic bands, namely, Andre Tanker’s One World Contraband and Kes the Band, until 2011. She decided to make a transformative career decision and formed her own band called SASS Nation in July 2011. SASS is one of the nation’s premier all-female soca bands. Nadia has also competed in two International Soca competitions, the International Soca Monarch and the Chutney Soca Monarch.
In conclusion, the CIRC stated that we want to celebrate Nadia as one of the nation’s prolific songwriters. This singer and soca artiste is also a producer. CIRC further mentioned about Nadia performing with fellow soca artiste Voice (Aaron St Louis) – One Mission (2019).
