https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS5zNvtAUVI My island I have always been actively involved in my church’s music ministry and upon graduating from secondary school, I received the Una Steele Memorial Award for Music. It was not until my late adolescent years around the age of 18 that I really took on the challenge of songwriting and singing my songs publicly at concerts, shows and church. These songs, however have not been officially released. In 2007, I was one of the finalists for Digicel Rising Stars, and also a finalist for Grenada Broadcasting Network’s Gospel Challenge in both 2009 and 2013, and JADE’s Songwriting Competition in 2013. During my enrollment at St. George’s University, I was the leader of the singing group, Serenity which was chosen to sing for two of the University’s advertisement. In 2015 and 2017 consecutively I won Karaoke Competitions. My first single “’Head up High” was released in 2017 and my second single “My Island” was released in April, 2018. My most major performances to date, was at the Pure Grenada Music Festival in March 2018 and Rhythms of Spice in June 2018. I also have additional major performances lined up for 2018. My main focus right at this time as a recording artiste is the marketing of my song “My Island” which can be found on YouTube and my social media pages on Facebook instagram and Twitter (@zorinamusic).

I love hiking, going to the beach, taking walks and driving in scenic places. I just enjoy nature. For an authentic Grenadian vacation, one must try our national dish known as “Oil Down” which is a mixture of several food items and meat cooked together in coconut milk in one pot. Be sure to visit and enjoy all our historical places and beaches such as Grand Anse Beach (a white sandy beach), Leaper’s Hill, all our Forts, all our waterfalls and much more.
