Artistes come together to aid Grenada

Through an initiative launched by the Caribbean Star Airlines, headquartered in Antigua, a number of Caribbean artistes recorded a song and will begin videotaping a music video to aid relief efforts for the people of Grenada. {{more}}
The song titled “Give Some Spice – Share The Love” was recorded at the Star Sounds Studios in Trinidad by producer Carl “Beaver” Henderson with the vocal input of artistes such as Machel Montano, Destra, Kees Dieffenthaller, Ghetto Flex and Michelle Xavier of Imij & Co., Terry Seales, Michelle Sylvester, 2Ntrigue featuring Charlene and Kelly, Patrick Gordon, 3 Canal and gospel singer Sean Daniel. Other Trinidadian artistes who are currently on engagements in North America are also expected to lay down tracks for a second version of the song with additional input coming from major Caribbean artistes representing Barbados, Antigua and the affected island Grenada.
The first version of the song is intended to be released on Monday on 98.9 Yes FM – the official station of the relief project – with an extended version being released later in the week with accompanying music video. Following the local launch which would embrace all media, the song and music video will be released throughout the Caribbean with a publicity roll-out involving the artistes travelling throughout the region promoting the effort.
Caribbean Star Airlines has committed US$2.00 of each ticket sold to any of its destinations over the next two months towards this major relief effort titled “The Grenada Relief Project”. This is expected to realise a significant sum.
Other major sponsors contributing towards the recording of the song and music video are Advance Dynamics Limited, Caribbean Money Market Brokers, Carib Brewery Limited, Pepsi-Cola Trinidad Limited, Frito Lay Snacks, Creative Directions Caribbean Limited and Precision Signs Limited. A team of creative writers, graphic artistes, videographers, video and audio technicians, the Association of Caribbean Mediaworkers and others in the communications industry have also extended their services and support.
