Earlier this month, Minister Grange introduced that the competitors was omitted from this 12 months’s Jamaica Pageant package deal on account of unsatisfactory entries.
The Minister in her speech emphasised the significance of this 12 months’s competitors and reassured the Jamaican diaspora that the competitors can have high quality entries.
“So, I wish to say to the diaspora and to the Jamaicans right here at residence that we are going to have a pageant tune competitors and we can have high quality entries.”
She added that the competitors is along with the Jamaica 60 commemorative album which is able to characteristic artistes together with Shaggy, Koffee, Freddie McGregor and Marcia Griffiths.
Entries for the competitors will reopen for one week from June 14 to 21 to pick out seven new songs. These might be added to the three songs already recognized by the choice panel from the earlier 123 entries.
A panel that was established to pick out the finalists for this 12 months’s competitors, suggested that it was unable to decide on ten appropriate songs from among the many entries regardless of extending the entry interval.
The Jamaica Cultural Improvement Fee (JCDC) might be ramping up the Jamaica Pageant Competitors workshops over the subsequent 12 months to make sure that there are improved entries for subsequent 12 months.
