The Barbados Gospelfest is one of the most popular annual gospel music festivals in the Caribbean.
Every May, since 1993, gospel singers, dancers, comedians and other people involved in gospel arts from across the world have taken part in this unique multifaceted event.
Artists that have taken part in the Barbados Gospelfest over the years include Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans, Byron Cage, Muyiwa, Bishop Wayne Malcolm, Don Moen and IDMC.
This year, Barbados Gospelfest runs from May 17-25, and organisers have added a new feature to this year’s activities: an international gospel choir competition, and are appealing for choirs from across the world, including the UK, to take part.
Choirs are invited to send in their entries of a recorded performance via a YouTube link, after filling in an online registration form. Performances must be no longer than 4 minutes 30 seconds, and the choir must be accompanied by either a keyboard or piano.
A panel of international judges will decide on the winner, who will not only win a cash prize but also get to perform at the grand finale of Barbados Gospelfest 2014, ‘One Awesome Day’, at Farley National Park on May 25.
