Out with the old and in with the new. Destra Garcia will stray from the ordinary this year, when she entertains friends, fans and loyal supporters this Sunday- on her birthday!

What started off as a string of social media greetings from fans of Ms. Bacchanal over the years and requests within, for her to host a big soiree, has in fact turned into a mini concert, set to be staged this coming Sunday at the Zen nightclub in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. Destra is adored by many soca lovers up the islands but with this Trini show carded, there’s no doubt that there’ll be a few sad fans who just won’t be able to make it. What will make them even sadder is the fact that Destra has promised a few surprises in the mix.

destra garcia In the past week, Garcia posted questions on social media for her fans to answer, choosing some 300 persons to attend the birthday bash this Sunday. She said, because of the overwhelming response she’s gotten, they’ve decided to sell a limited 200 tickets for the event, which starts at 6pm and ends at midnight.

Speaking on urban radio station, 94.1FM in Trinidad this morning, Garcia who sounded cheerful and spirited, said she’ll be releasing a number of melodious singles for 2014. Her first three soca contributions for the season, ‘Mash Up’, ‘Road Calling’ and ‘A Little Bit’, have unleashed that old Destra vibe, according to some people, and Destra herself said she wants to make memorable music like she used to, during her chat with the radio crew this morning. “I want to make music that my daughter and other children can sing along to, music with melody,” she reiterated.

Destra Garcia has been a force in the soca music industry for a number of years. At home in Trinidad, she has been scrutinized time and time again by the critics, however her music has continued to be speak for itself. Whether she’ll get that big break she deserves in 2014, is left to be seen but for now, we’re wishing Destra a Happy Birthday in advance, hoping that she has a hell of a time on Sunday!
