Miss World 2019
Singh left for London in November 2019, to participate in the Miss World pre-pageant activities. Singh placed in the top 40 of the Top Model competition and won the talent competition, which granted her direct entry into the top 40 semifinals. Finals night was held on 14 December at ExCeL London, where Singh advanced from the top 40 to the top 12, and ultimately to the top five. She was then crowned the winner, besting first runner-up Ophély Mézino of France and second runner-up Suman Rao of India. With her win, Singh became the fourth Jamaican woman to hold the title, with the last being Lisa Hanna who was crowned Miss World 1993, and the first black woman to win Miss World since Agbani Darego of Nigeria won Miss World 2001. Her win also made 2019 the first ever year that black women won the two most prestigious beauty pageant titles in the world, after Zozibini Tunzi became South Africa's first black woman to have won the Miss Universe title.
