Congrats Tarina, you were my favorite from the first time you peform in Barbados. I was at the Party Stand in Barbados for every show this season. You are a real star, you are beautiful and genuine. You deserved to win that competition. You have natural talent and you do a wicked Tina Turner.

I am glad to know that all my texting paid off. I felt as if I had won the lottery when you were announced the winner last night. You rock Tarina! Keep up the good work, and may God continue to bless you, and I want you to continue to give your best at all times. You will go international. That is my wish for you, to be recognized internationally, and I am sure it will happen.

Keep your head up and make us proud. I want to say congrats to all Dominicans, you have sent us a wonderful person, and she made us all in Barbados very proud. I can go on and on, but I’ll stop here for now. God Bless you Tarina, we love you.

And We have A Winner!!!

Blue Blue….. Alas Dominica… our hopes, prayers, dreams, and aspirations for a certain tiny island princess of song have been answered. Our young songbird Tarina Simon has prevailed as the 2007 Digicel Rising Star. It was a long hard road and somewhat of an emotional rollercoaster to get is to this point. Let me be the first on this forum to congratulate this young lady on captivating the hearts and minds of not only Dominica and the Caribbean, but by extension, the world.

Tarina we hope you realize that this is not the end game but in fact a new beginning. You have now created very big shoes for your self and the anticipation is building for Carnival and Calypso in 2008. I have no doubt that you will surpass everyone’s expectations not just because you are a stellar performer, but because you also elect to put God first in your life and proclaim that to the masses every chance you get.

Here is to hoping that one or more of our extremely gifted Dominican songwriters, and we know we have quite a few who shall remain nameless (Mr. Aaron), finds it in their creative genius to write you the song that will give birth to the first ever female calypso monarch of Dominica. We will not look to, or talk about, anything that happened in previous years. Our hopes for you are forward facing and filled with positive energy, support, and love.

Blue Blue…… not even sure what the hell that means but we love you girl!

Tarina, Tarina! You are simply the best. Let me first begin to say that I first recognised your talent when you were a participant in the C&W Star quest competition. You did not emerge winner however we all knew that you deserved to win. Lets not look to the past though. Then you entered the calypso arena and have made your presence truly felt that you elevated to the top among the big guns for the Calypso Monarch. You have places to go girl…and you have the talent to do so. Keep aiming for the stars and making your Dominican people proud. I am a true fan of yours and want to wish you all the best in all your future endeavors. I know for sure you will be going places. This is just the beginning for you sweetie.
God bless you, may his face keep shining upon you and always give thanks, cause the lord almight blessed you with a wonderful voice. Cherish your talent. Remain humble and true to yourself!! One love
