Creative Industries Minister Dr. Ernest Hilaire has urged Saint Lucia creatives to pursue their passion while congratulating Saint Lucia’s Teddyson John, who recently headlined a successful soca show in Trinidad and Tobago.
John saw one of his dreams realised with the staging of his first event, ‘Stripped’ in the twin Island republic to appreciative reviews.
And he has disclosed plans to do it again next year.
Dr. Hilaire, also responsible for Tourism, Investment, Culture, and Information, wrote on Facebook last week that John was the first Saint Lucian to headline a Soca concert in Trinidad and Tobago.
“This event showcased the depth of culture and creative industries here in Saint Lucia,” Hilaire declared.
He also said it demonstrated the ability of the people of this country to export and showcase their talents on a national, regional, and international level.
” I encourage all creatives to pursue your passion and turn them into positive economic activities,” Hilaire stated.
Teddyson John is a Saint Lucian brand ambassador.
He is also a singer, songwriter, keyboardist and percussionist who has been in the industry for over a decade.
