Ms. Dianne Hendrickson, a.k.a. Lady Wonder, bounced into the world, crying musical notes on August, 1st, 1960. The first daughter and child of Mr. & Mrs. Anthony Hendrickson, veteran Calypsonian, All Rounder.
For thirty (30) years (1979 to present), Lady Wonder has persistently and consistently made an outstanding annual contribution to the Calypso Artform and World Stage.

For 2014, Lady Wonder thrilled the audiences with her social commentary, penned by her sister Shirlane Hendrickson, entitled, “Do Something Positive”. In 2015, Shirlane again penned “Get Rid Of Them Mockers”, which earned her a place at the Semi- Finals at Skinner Park.
For the 2016 season, Lady Wonder had been blazing the stage at the Klassic Ruso Calypso Tent with Shirlane’s composition entitled “Nation Building”.
She had earned a place as one of the Semi- Finalists at TUCO’s National Calypso Monarch Semi-Finals Competition at Skinner Park.

As Lady Wonder keeps striving to cross cultural borders and stretch the seams of her culture globally, we tip our hats to her cultural commitment and to quote her “ish heur nemals oft mit dem Kaiso !!”, which means in German She will never stop singing Kaiso!!
