FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
New York, NY (August 17, 2009) – Turks and Caicos Islands will host the 7th Annual International Soca Awards (iSA) on October 30, 2009.
Newsflash! The International Soca Awards (iSA) has island-hopped to the Turks and Caicos Islands for their Lucky 7 award ceremony. After Six successful years in New York 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007, Trinidad in 2005, and St. Kitts in 2008, the 2009 event promises to be the biggest yet. The ceremony’s perspective is to showcase Soca music in its most ostentatious yet elegant and classy form, creating notice and appreciation along the way.
The Annual iSA is the Caribbean’s equivalent to the Grammy Awards where Soca superstars from all facets of the business compete for sought after titles of the Soca Music art form. This gala event is a presentation of the Brooklyn, N.Y. based Soca Awards Organization, Inc., whose founder and CEO is young and ambitious Trinidadian entrepreneur, COLIN HAYDEN JACKMAN. The Red Carpet event will be held on Friday October 30th, 2009 at Downtown Ballpark Providenciales, with doors opening at 5:00pm and show time promptly at 7:00pm.
SAO in association with Star Life Productions & Monopoly Entertainment promises iSA 7 to be a glitzy affair filled with the same exciting atmosphere and refined presentations as the previous Soca Awards ceremonies. Calypso and Soca will ‘rub’ shoulders with the Ripsaw music of the islands and blend well with the islands’ customs. A very high profile international entertainment superstar is expected to be the "Special Invited Guest Presenter" at the star studded evening of music, culture, and honors.
