2014 Sparrow tribute

At our Annual Calypso and Ole Mas Competition earlier this year, we paid tribute to the Mighty Sparrow. Below is an excerpt from the speech read at our tribute:


Slinger Franciso was born in a small village in Grenada on 9 July, 1935 and migrated to Trinidad with his family in 1937, before he was two (2) years old.
He is now popularly known as the Mighty Sparrow, "King of the Calypso World" and also affectionately called the "Birdie".
