The album titled ‘Jamaica Festival 2022 Song Competition’ features the ten finalists in this year’s contest. It’s the third consecutive year that finalists in the Jamaica Festival Song Competition have been released on global streaming platforms.
The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honorable Olivia Grange, who has been leading the initiative as part of her strategy to revitalize Jamaica Festival is urging “lovers of Jamaican music, everywhere, to support the artistes by streaming and downloading the songs.”
According to the Minister, “It is essential that people hear and get to know the finalists and participate in selecting that one song which will drive our Jamaica 60 Independence celebrations. These 30, or so, streaming options are a good medium to expose the music and the performers.”
The winning song will be decided by judges scores as well as public voting via text messaging in Jamaica and via the Reggae Jamaica App across the world. There’s a prize of three million dollars for the winning song to be shared among the producer, the writer and the singer.
