Blood to take on TT
Power Soca Monarch hopeful Anderson Blood Armstrong intends to set the thousands of feet expected in Trinidad for Carnival ablaze.
With just about a week to go before the big finals showdown at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Blood is gearing up and hoping to do for the Power Soca competition what Biggie Irie did in 2007 with the Play Whe Groovy Soca Monarch.
Biggie Irie remains the only non-Trinidadian to win any part of the Bmobile International Soca Monarch competition.
“I’m not going to let things hamper my performance . . . . My aim is to get out there is to bring a show. I want to create as much energy on stage and get out,” he said.Blood is using a total of 16 dancers, including eight from Trinidad, to help him “work” the song. His Soca Kartel partner Mikey and Brett will be accompanying him on backing vocals.
He encouraged Barbadians who will be flocking to Trinidad in time for the finals activities of the 2011 Carnival next weekend to come out and support him at the Soca Monarch finals, because he will be working hard to bring the title home.
