"B.B. King's welcomes The Mighty Sparrow. The "Calypso King", a native of Trinidad, has been performing for over fifty years, gaining worldwide fame for his blend of catchy island rhythms, often-bawdy humor, and sharp political and social commentary. Don't miss this consummate showman live in concert."
The Mighty Sparrow is the unrivaled Calypso King of the World, with a career that spans over 50 years and counting. This artist par excellence has earned his rightful place as "King of the Calypso World" by defeating every other competitor/pretender to his throne. He has entertained audiences across the globe, including, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, to name but a few.
The Mighty Sparrow has proved himself as the Quintessential Calypsonian, par excellence, with over seventy albums to his credit. He is richly endowed with many gifts. He possesses an amazing ability not only to put into words and tempo the exploits of society, but to crown it all with showmanship and appeal. His great contribution to the artform and our lives has unraveled the mysteries of Caribbean life, leaving the professionally trained sociologist and economist befuddled.
A combination of talent, hard work and opportunity enabled Sparrow's ascendance to Calypso King of the World. He brought honor, glory and dignity to an indigenous art form that was once scorned upon by the elite of Caribbean society. He is one extraordinary entertainer who utilizes the medium he masters not just to entertain but also to edify, enlighten, and educate.
The King is currently preparing for the new millennium when he will re-enter the World Monarch and Road March Competitions for a cataclysmic encounter with his competitors. Without doubt, The Mighty Sparrow, The King of Kings, is the real Supreme Serenader.
