Purple Slush seeks new talent
Purple Slush family fun day, slated for Saturday at Colonel Cove, St Thomas, is seeking new talent.
The organisers, G2V Entertainment, with the help of recording artiste Devin Di Dakta and dancing sensation John Hype, will be hosting a singing/deejay and dance competition for students in the east.
"These competitions are aimed at awarding young talented students and further encouraging them to embrace their talents," one of the organisers said.
The competition targets students at the primary and secondary levels, giving them the opportunity to compete for more than $150,000 in cash and prizes. Students between eight and 17 years are eligible to participate in the dancing competition, while high-school students can participate in the singing and deejay competitions.
Devin Di Dakta, who is also slated to perform at the event, said: "It was my participation in a competition that helped to create my musical platform, so I am very excited about judging and performing for these students."
The organisers have also visited several schools in St Mary, Portland and St Thomas and received tremendous feedback from students and staff about the upcoming event. "We are looking forward to the participation of the schools in eastern Jamaica. The youths are the future and so we are responsible for them," another of the organisers said.
Purple Slush gates will open at 10 a.m. and will feature DJ Murphy, the winner of the SunCity High School Disc Jock Competition, alongside Coppershot, Richie Feelings, CD Master, DJ Game Girl and Generation 2Vexx from Canada, and Supreme Sound, Ravers Movement and Irie Sound from St Thomas.
