Claudia’s got it all and if there’s one thing we know, it’s this: she never stops. Claudia “The Diva” Edward, as we’ve come to know her, premiered her latest single recently—an upbeat motivational single, that will surely bring a smile to your face.
The single (“Time to Shine”) was launched on Saturday October 8 at the Pink Papaya Restaurant and Bar in Point Seraphine; the event was well-attended.
The singer graced the stagein a somewhat risqué piece, opening with “Time to Shine”; Claudia, (backed by band Naked Chords), performed a slew of singles thereafter.
The setting was intimate and her soothing sound blended well with the atmosphere—I must add that I enjoyed her set immensely.
Claudia sat down with me after her stellar performance for a brief interview. Though exhausted, she greeted me with an endearing smile, excited to chat about her new single.
“Time to Shine was written by myself and my producer Raul Alcide also known as “Rossi”, and recorded at Déjà vu Digital, Rossi’s studio.The song is about letting your light shine so that others can follow in your footsteps,” she said; Tricia “Trish” Jn. Baptiste and Ronald “Boo” Hinkson are featured on the song as well.
The video which was directed by Colin Weekes features a number of prominent and talented Saint Lucians. Guest stars include Nobel Laureate, Sir Derek Walcott, musician, Ronald “Boo” Hinkson, ballet instructor, Theresa Collymore and cricketer, Kimani Melius amongst others.
And according to this soul sister, she had lots of fun creating this single.
The song which is from Claudia’s latest album ‘On the Edge’ is available for purchase at Sea Island Cotton Shop, iTunes, CD baby and Amazon.
She’s not a simple gal, so always expect the very best from this diva. After all, she’s the full (fun!) package.
