Tuesday’s Honey Jam auditions were a great success. Judges included – Cassandra Crawford, singer and CBC TV host; Mahalia, recording artist; Paul Russell, former Head of Sony/ATV; Caroline Roach, LOVE FM; musician and producer John Roett; Anies Jordan of CRS Music & Media as well as artist Philip 7 among others.

Media was out in full force to cover the event, find out from the judges what they thought of the talent and to speak with the auditionees about their experiences.

Next up is their November 1 press conference where Honey Jam will reveal the artists who made the cut. They’re in the process of finalizing funding for the artist workshops and then the big show November 12! Honey Jam’s also finalising the selection of the artists, planning the workshops and our promotional push is on for the showcase. Tickets are in outlets now – The Plantation, Jeans Inc. at Sheraton Mall, and Ticket Central. It’s going to be an awesome display of young talent in a variety of genres.

The top scorer of the night was Christal Austin (below) who received high marks from each of the 11 judges.

Show producer Ebonnie Rowe told all of the hopefuls – “We’re not looking for the next Rihanna, that spot is taken, we’re looking for the first you!” She went on to advise them not to look at any other artist as their competition and that the person they need to be better than is the person they were yesterday – to focus on their own development and growth as artists, as young women, as citizens of Barbados and the world, remembering the pledge “and by my living to do credit to my Nation wherever I may go.”
