Alison Hinds, well known in Barbados and the Caribbean at large as Soca Queen (and former lead singer of Square One) was presented with a proclamation honoring her for her 20-year music career at the Caribbean Fever Music Festival at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.

The proclamation, from Deputy Majority Leader of the New York City Council and Council Member for the 27th District Leroy Comrie, honoured Hinds for exemplary service spanning her 20-year career on music stages across the Caribbean and as far as Stockholm, Sweden. The proclamation called her a legend, noted her appearance on the Today Show, her work in chutney and soca music, as well as her humanitarian work in HIV/AIDS, women’s rights and with the Diabetes Foundation. [. . .]

Hinds said, “It feels great to be recognized for what I do, not only outside of Barbados but outside of the region for these many years. [. . .] But I still have more to do. I ain’t done yet,” said the singer of hits like Roll, Faluma, Ragamuffin and Unity.
