Being a proud representative of the Spice Isle of the Caribbean, Jeverson was seen waving his Grenada flag and his golden ticket in the American Idol video which circulated on Facebook on Monday.

Minister of State with responsibility for Youth and Sports, Ron Redhead said this achievement by Ramirez speaks volumes of the talents that young Grenadians possess.

He also commended the Grenadian artiste for his perseverance and zeal in pursuing his musical dreams. He said Ramirez is a living example that dreams come true if you remain focused.
