Allan Clelland-Goddard, while a little on the shy side in person, is an outstanding performer that draws you in like he had been doing this for years!

No matter what comes or goes Allan Clelland Goddard is here to stay!  Allan has been more than impressive lately with each video that he releases!  Since knowing Allan and writing about him here, I have observed a remarkable growth not only in his vocals but in his camera/stage presence.  Allan, while a little on the shy side in person, is an outstanding performer that draws you in like he had been doing this for a decade!

Allan has been dedicating most of his time to his schoolwork since the Carnival season ended in Trinidad. He was very involved with Carnival and competed in several competitions and made many guest appearances. He was also included in the prestigious “Kings go Forth’ concert which is held 2 weeks after Carnival and showcases the winners of all the big calypso competitions. Following that, Allan entered the ‘29thBiennial Music Festival 2010’ which as its name suggests, is held every 2 years and is hosted by the Trinidad and Tobago Music Association. Allan came out victorious in his class: Boys 11-12 Solo and received much praise from adjudicator Dr. Paul Johnson – the director of The School of Music at Wichita State University in the US. allan ferrari 1

Allan spent his Easter vacation (spring break) in Orlando with his family. He visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios and had a thoroughly enjoyable time, but the highlight of his vacation was visiting a Ferrari dealership and being allowed to touch, take pictures with and even sit in his dream car (what 12 year old boy does not dream of one day owning an expensive sports car?)

Last Thursday Allan accepted an invitation to make a guest appearance to sing his song, ‘Pan in Meh DNA’ at a primary (elementary) schools steelpan competition. The children & teachers alike were enthralled to see and hear Allan and really enjoyed his performance.

Deborah, Allan’s Mom explained;

.”Allan’s latest YouTube video has been in the pipeline for some months now but had to take a back seat to accommodate his calypso, vacation etc.  This new video is the culmination of a lot of hard work by the very talented Chris Nelson (christoff555) who worked tirelessly both on the audio track and then the video mixing and editing this masterpiece…..Thanks Chris!”


They are hoping that the next video will be out in the not too distant future, and while they would not say what it’s going to be, it’s bound to be very special and I’m sure we will all enjoy it!

  1. Thank you for your comment! Yes Allan has grown incredibly with his vocals and expressions. This latest video truly shows his star qualities that have always existed but was yet to emerge on video! When he performs live he exhibits this kind of exuberance with every performance. I'm so happy he allowed the world to see him in his natural form. Once again Fantastic Job Allan!

  2. Allan Clelland-Goddard is growing up and I see more confidence in him. I agree with Rod that there is a noticeable change in his stage presence and the camera seems to love him more .His vocal range also sound clearer and richer. Chris`s professional touch is notable as well and he deserves the recognition that Allan`s mom gave him.

  3. As you know it is my happy privilege to write these articles for Allan and am especially glad for your response here today!

I'm so very privileged to have the opportunity to collaborate with Alan and his mother, Deborah, and look forward to each new project. We're working out some of the technical aspects with our working in totally different parts of the world, and are exploring new ideas through the exclusive use of Internet technology and cutting-edge software. Although I've never actually met Alan or his mother, I've come to appreciate them very much, and am optimistic that Alan is destined to become a very popular young entertainer!
