Culture minister, Olivia Grange, says this year’s Jamaica Festival Song Album is being considered for a Grammy nomination.
The 11-track album titled ‘Jamaica Festival Song 2023 Competition’ is being reviewed by eligible voting members of the Recording Academy, whose votes will determine the nominees in the Reggae category.
The nominees will be announced in November.
Minister Grange expressed delight at the Festival Song album being nominated for a third year since what she describes as the revitalisation of the competition.
The album features songs performed by Slashe, Mento Tones, Avante, Lady Denna & The Whole Note Mento Band, Hot Rod, Shuga, N-Rich, Princess Black, Prince Fabulous, Eric Donaldson, and Exco Levi.
The album is available for streaming and download on several digital music platforms across the world, including Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, and Spotify.
