Here are two numbers by the late Jany Williams, who won the Saint Lucia calypso crown in 2004 and met a tragic death in a car crash, October, that same year.


The 26 year old won the calypso monarch title with the songs, Having A Baby and Tribute To Calypso Greats. Sadly she didn't get a chance to receive her prize, having passed before prize-giving ceremony took place.

Jany - Having A Baby



Jany Williams had won the title only three months before she met her demise. The car she was driving plunged about 300 feet down a precipice near Anse La Verdue, Canaries, Saint Lucia and she reportedly died from a broken neck.

Williams was a member of Kurt Allen's Caribbean Vizion, a group that promotes economic cooperation while developing a relationship between education, culture and regional consciousness among West Indians. She touched the heart of many all over the Caribbean. She was a rising regional performer with a hit soca number, Splash that was popular in the Caribbean and New York.

Jany was lead singer for St Lucian band, Wezon, a netballer, former student of St Joseph's Convent and a former school teacher.

This month marks ten years since she passed. We remember her in a loving way. Gone too soon.
