Nine year old Singing Sensation, Avindha Singh burst onto the Chutney Soca Scene when he won the 2019 National Carnival Primary School Intellectual Chutney Soca Monarch with his original composition titled “Take you Education”. This song encouraged young students to take full advantage of their education in order to become a credit to Trinidad & Tobago’s society. See the song’s full lyrics below
Listen, Listen, all fellow children,
Make sure and take your education,
To have a future that’s bright and happy,
You have to make time to study,
Make your parents proud,
Yes! got to school and learn,
Aim for the stars,
Go to school and learn,
this is your future,
Show some concern!
Its very easy to get carried away,
If you follow bad company,
You will go astray,
Keep your mind focus and set your goal,
You can be anything,
You want to be in this world.
Your parents working very hard to support you,
Making great sacrifices for you,
this golden opportunity,
dont let it waste,
Try your best and excel,
Put a smile on their face.
Life without education,
Can be hell,
Especially in these times,
So study well,
It’s the best way to escape poverty
and live a descent life that is crime free.
