Meet the extraordinary reluctant King of Calypso, Harry Belafonte. He’s been named by some as such because of the way he made Calypso music popular. His first album titled “Calypso” was number four on Billboard's "Top 100 Albums". Harry is also the first Black to win an Emmy w/ his first solo TV special, Tonight W/ Belafonte. "You are really responsible for the world in which you live". Harry Belafonte
