Margaret Williams is a delightful eighteen year old whose love for singing is rivaled only by her passion for nature. Her athletic ability has won her top awards in cross country and track and field in her High school. From early on, her emotive solo performances would captivate school and church audiences.
Margaret attended the Cosmo School of Music. At ten years old she was performing as guest lead singer with the Bruce Skerritt Band. Quincy Bullen taught her to combine her piano and vocal skills. It was under the tutelage of her then vocal coach Paula Griffith of PG Productions that Margaret began to really own her talent. It wasn’t long before she was being approached to perform at prestigious events. The latest one being the 2017 Harry Jerome Awards Show for the second time, the first was at 13 years old when she opened the show along with two other singers with the Black Anthem “One Voice.” She did the Canadian Anthem in both French and English at the 2016 UWI Benefit Gala. She also captivated audiences at the Canadian US Consulate 2015 Fourth of July Celebration.
In Paula’s own words “Margaret was an immediate stand out. I am so proud of her vocal and music development thus far. She is one of those exceptional individuals that one senses is headed for certain success” Margaret graduated from Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts vocal program and has just completed her first year at Trent University. What is not yet known about Margaret is her song writing ability since she was 13 years old. She will be in studio over this summer recording some of her work.
Singer/composer Roger Gibbs has long been an innovator in Caribbean Acoustic and Calypso music. His unique guitar style and versions of Barbadian folk songs reveal a deep knowledge, along with a special talent for creating original work that captures the very best of the rich Caribbean storytelling tradition.
