Legendary Calypso Queen Denyse Plummer Dies After Battle with Cancer

Trinidad and Tobago soca singer Denyse Plummer has died at the age of 69 after a long battle with cancer.

Plummer, who was known as the “Calypso Queen,” was a 12-time Calypso Queen and the first female calypsonian to win the Calypso Monarch title in 2001. She was also a successful gospel singer.

Plummer’s son, Jesse Boocock, confirmed her death on Sunday. He said that she had been resting comfortably at home and spending time with family in recent weeks.

“She was at peace,” Boocock said. “She was surrounded by her loved ones.”

Plummer was born in Trinidad and Tobago in 1954. She began her career as a pop singer, but later switched to calypso. She was known for her strong, powerful voice and her ability to write catchy songs with social commentary.

Plummer’s death is a major loss for the calypso community. She was a trailblazing figure who helped to pave the way for other female calypsonians. She was also a beloved figure in Trinidad and Tobago, and her songs will continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.

A funeral service will be held at a later date.
