Quissa Baptiste, an 18 year old UWI law student, is the daughter of a Grenadian, Dr. Martin Baptiste and Andrea Baptiste, a former TAMCC Lecturer. She first started her craft in Grenada, where she grew up and received her early education at Green Street Pre Primary and St. Andrews Methodist Primary School. Those at the Grenville and Nook Evangelical Church are familiar with this songbird.
Since she has been in Barbados, she has won quite a few competitions. She has not only won the best talent at her Harrison College School pageant, where she placed first runner up, but she has also won a number of awards including five music awards at the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA). Her last win there allowed her to open for international Gospel Artiste, Israel and New Breed.
Recently, she was backed by the popular Bajan band NECYX at the Mahalia Corner's show where she was a spotlight artiste. She has just won a main prize at the Honey Jam Barbados a few weeks ago that afforded her a feature in BimRock Online magazine. One of those prizes is the production of a music video of her original song 'The End of Us'. Look out for Quissa's music and let us support her because she belongs to us. You can find her doing a cover of What Love Really Means, by JJ Heller.
