Upcoming entertainer, Kamron ‘Chucky’ St. Paul from Gouyave, St. John is a fifteen-year old form four student attending the St. Rose Modern Secondary School.
He is the nephew of Soca Ambassador, Hollice “Mr Killa” Mapp – a two-time Soca Monarch and one-time Groovy King.
The teenager spoke of his plans for 2015 in an exclusive interview with THE NEW TODAY newspaper following the conclusion of a 1-day training session organised by Columbus Communication (FLOW) in St. George’s on June 6 in preparation for the 2015 edition of the CC6 Carnival Knockout Competition.
Chucky said he intends to take part in the 2015 CC6 competition, as well as the 2015 School’s Soca Monarch, previously known as the Secondary School Soca Monarch.
In 2013, the energetic performer began his journey into competition, making his debut at the Schools Soca Monarch, placing second.
He also copped second place in the 2014 edition of the competition, which is open to students of both secondary and primary schools across the island.
The young artistealso copped the second spot in the 2014 edition of the CC6 Carnival Knockout Competition.
“For the past two years I have been doing one song but this year I plan to release two songs…including a groovy,” he said, which is an area of competition, which he will be venturing for the very first time.
Chucky said he is currently working on the final touches for his 2015 songs entitled: ’No worries’ and ‘Failure is not an option.’
“So you have to look out for that,” he quipped as he made reference to his two songs.
The artiste who is harbouring thought of becoming a lawyer by profession, discovered his love for signing at the tender age of four.
He said the artform is embedded within his genes and hopes to make it (singing) as a “side career” in the long run.
“Singing…I think it runs in my family because my uncle sings, my grandmother used to sing…and she always speaks to me and tell me (to) take my time and that once I put God in front everything is possible.
So I am praying and hoping that everything works out,” Chucky added.
