Six contestants, one grand finale, but who will walk away with the first prize?
Get yourself down to the Mary Miller Hall on Saturday, 6 April, at 7pm for “Step Up to the Mic” to find out.
It’s the last round in the Cayman Gospel Contest, which began in last October. Over the course of successive eliminations, the contestants have been whittled down to six finalists, each of whom will be stepping up to the mic and giving it their all in the last round of this talent show.
Finalists include Toney-Ann Foster, Stephaney Graham, Lamar Wint (Zamar), Richard Chevannes, Davane Jackson and the Autors (Jay and Lorelie). Each will be performing cover versions of gospel songs which will be judged by a panel. The judges are all involved in the local music scene in different ways.
The audience will also have a certain influence on the vote, although to keep it fair, organisers say, the weight the audience’s vote carries has to be restricted.
In addition to renditions from the six contestants, guest artists coming from Jamaica will perform while the judges deliberate. ASAPH Worship Team, a gospel group, and solo artist Kimola Brown will be coming to Cayman especially for the final of this all-new contest to find Cayman’s best gospel singer.
Significant cash prizes for the top three contestants will ensure they really give the performances of their lives. The first prize includes $1,500, second prize is $700 and third prize is $400.
Book your tickets early and save. It’s $10 per person pre-sold, or $15 at the door and it is sure to be a memorable evening.
