Biography

Name: Carol Gonzalez
Date of birth: Feb. 8, 1960
Gender: Female
Biography: Mini-Biography – Carol Gonzalez


I began singing professionally in at the “Jonkanoo Lounge” nightclub, with the resident band at the Wyndham Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.

During my sojourn with this band, we performed six nights per week. I was the lead female singer of the group. I stayed with this group for about eight months, after which, I was invited me to perform (cabaret) on the Jamaican hotel/resort circuit, by a booking agent.

I accepted the invitation and performed as a cabaret artist until I migrated to Manhattan, New York, USA to pursue my career in the United States. In Manhattan, New York, my managers commissioned Mr. Danny Holgate, of Broadway fame, to develop a voice and stagecraft training programme specific to my goals. My training lasted twelve months. During my period of training I performed in small nightclubs in Manhattan. Unfortunately at the completion of my training, a family emergency compelled me to return to Jamaica; subsequent to which I was unable to pick up where I had left off in New York.

I remained in Jamaica and returned to the hotel/resort circuit as a cabaret artist. I subsequently switched careers and read for a degree in law. In 1991 I passed the Jamaican Bar examinations and began to practice as an Attorney-at-Law. During the period 1986-1998, I continued my musical career, albeit to a lesser extent.
