Erphaan Alves: Hard work pays off
Two weeks ago when the T&T Guardian interviewed young singing sensation Erphaan Alves, then a semifinalist in the Digicel International Power and Play Whe Groovy Soca Monarch competitions, his focus was to present a good enough performance at the semifinals to get him into the finals. Well, at the Arima Velodrome last Sunday, Alves convinced the judges that he was “finalist material” when he gave his all in both categories with his compositions In Your Eyes and Terrible, landing him on the official finalist list in both categories, announced on Tuesday by Caribbean Prestige Foundation for the Performing Arts. When contacted, the 20-year-old pelau lover was in a celebratory mood, as he was lapping up every moment of his accomplishment after having only made it to the semifinals in the past five years. “I am elated, it’s just a great feeling. After all these years the hard work is finally paying off,” he said. The songwriter confessed, however, since the unveiling of the good news he has been “taxing” his brain about his presentation for the finals.
