The island of T&T is blessed with a number of musically talented men and women. From soca to R&B, hip-hop and even dancehall, the island’s talent pool abundantly spills over. At Christmas, the beats of soca-parang infiltrate, and the vocals of many are heard across the length and breadth of the island. This season, another female crooner released a track entitled, Joy of Christmas.

Nicole De Coteau is no stranger to the regional entertainment fraternity. Her name symbolises a myriad of genres, styles and an undying thirst to offer more. In 2010, she’s teamed up with well-known vocalist, Jason “Fridge” Seecharan of the group H2OPhlo. The soothing Christmas melody is yet another on De Coteau’s extensive catalogue of Caribbean music, much of which has been given the international seal of approval.

This new release, which was produced by Richard “Charsu” Ahong, is considered to be perfectly timed, according to the vibrant female singer. She explained that both she and Fridge, had for years, spoken about working together. The opportunity finally presented itself in 2010. “Nothing happens before its time,” said De Coteau, explaining that the track took just a few days to pen. With years of vocal experience and a reputation that guarantees her respect among her peers, De Coteau is ready to entertain the people of the Caribbean, and by extension, the world.

“Music is universal, regardless of language. The beats, rhythms and melodies fuse to offer timeless accounts of our existence,” she said. With no intention of leaving the arena anytime soon, the woman who has made a name for her self in music, said she would continue to produce the best work she can for music lovers, and represent Trinidad and Tobago the best way she knows how.
