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.”

She continued: “I have seen this man keep an entire party going for hours…his voice never gets tired. He keeps singing and singing and singing, and it gets better and better. We have to wish Jeverson the best of luck at American Idol. I just hope they don’t miss an opportunity to elevate this individual to the level of star he already is.”
