It's news in Trinidad, but an official source has yet confirmed it. But, I've heard from more than one person that he's indeed dead.
Oh wow. I grew up hearing his name and listening to his music all my life 'cause my Father is a huge fan. I saw him perform live here in Brooklyn just last year. Sad. Sparrow was/is one of the best in Calypso and will be sorely missed (If he had in fact passed away).
