Jamaica Festival 2010
Two albums with the compilation of songs of the 20 finalists for the 2011 Jamaica Independence Festival and Gospel Song competitions have been produced by the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC).

Olivia Grange, the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, unveiled the albums at a studio launch of the 2011 Jamaica Festival and national Independence celebrations last week.

The Jamaica Independence Festival will be staged during the period July 29 to August 6 under the theme: 'The Journey Continues...' Among the activities being organised by the JCDC are the Miss Jamaica Festival Queen Coronation Show, August Fair, World Reggae Dance Championships, Mello Go Roun' and Independence Day Gala.

Ms Grange said Jamaicans have a lot to celebrate.

"Jamaica, this small dot in the ocean has made such a mark on the big world that we must celebrate... We are a great little country."

The minister added that there is much more to be achieved and called for Jamaicans to re-double their efforts to realise the dreams of the ancestors.

The winner will be selected at the Jamaica Festival Song and Gospel Song Finals scheduled to take place at the National Indoor Sports Centre in Kingston on Friday, July 29 and Sunday, July 31, respectively.

Winner of the Festival Song competition will receive $1 million, donated by telecommunications company Claro and a new 2011 Nissan Tida, given by Fidelity Motors Limited.
