Toni-Ann Singh won Miss World 2019 over the weekend to become the fourth Jamaican winner of the title. I heard about this late in the game, but recently heard her performance before receiving the title; all I can say is, ” Wow, this woman can sing!” It was a beautiful performance. See the link below for a video of her singing Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” and for additional photos and videos. Caribbean 360 reports:
“To…all the girls around the world – please believe in yourself. Please know that you are worthy and capable of achieving your dreams,” the 23-year-old student tweeted on Saturday after winning the title at the 69th edition of the pageant in London. She beat 111 other contestants after impressing the judges with her answers to a variety of questions and singing Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’.
Singh is a women’s studies and psychology student at Florida State University who aspires to be a medical doctor. Previously she worked as president of the Caribbean students association on campus.
Jamaica’s Culture Minister Olivia Grange, reacting to Singh’s victory, said the beauty queen was “a most deserving winner” and she had made the entire country proud. “She is an outstanding young woman with a wonderful personality, a beautiful soul, and extraordinary talent. She represented Jamaica so well during this competition and now we all have an amazing new Miss World. Toni-Ann is clearly the best choice,” Grange said. “We are all walking on air, especially the girls at the Women’s Centre of Jamaica Foundation location in St Thomas — Toni-Ann is so passionate about her parish and women’s issues — and she has been working with us at the Ministry to make a difference in the lives of the young girls who attend the Centre.”
The other Jamaicans who won the title before Singh were Carole Joan Crawford in 1963, Cindy Breakspeare in 1976 and Lisa Hanna in 1993.
