Glowing tributes flowed today at the funeral for The Mighty Shadow.
Booking Agent for the late Calypsonian, Herman Hall, said the man he worked with from 1978 up until his passing last week, was humble, willing to help his fellow colleagues and a serious family man.
Speaking at Shadow’s funeral service at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, earlier today, Mr. Hall said he admired how Shadow, whose real name was Winston Bailey, was focused on doing what he loved, in spite of the competitive nature of the profession.
Former President, Anthony Carmona, during his reflection on the Mighty Shadow, said during his career he was not always given the respect and appreciation he deserved.
In his tribute, President of the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organization, Lutalo Masimba, Brother Resistance, related details surrounding the funeral service and the input of the Chairman of the National Carnival Commission, Winston Gypsy Peters, into the event.
