    Digicel Rising Star Competition Rising Further

    Rising Stars now open to bMobile customers

    Published on: 6/18/07.

    THERE ARE A NUMBER of changes in this year's Digicel Rising Stars competition.

    The talent show, now in its third season, has received permission from Cable & Wireless in seven territories to allow its customers to also vote. These include St Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, St Kitts and Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada and Dominica.

    In addition, the show, which has attracted many performers from the Eastern Caribbean, has welcomed Haiti on board. An estimated US$1.3 million is being spent on production there.

    This was revealed at the launch of the 2007 Digicel Rising Stars at Discovery, Marigot Bay, St Lucia, last Friday.

    Marketing director for the Eastern Caribbean, Errol McGlothan, said: "We wrote to bMobile last year and they decided to participate this year.

    "The feedback from their customers was that the show was so good they want to participate in the show," he told a number of regional journalists.

    Although McGlothan could not identify the total number of bMobile customers in the territories that could be involved, he said there was a population of about 850 000, in terms of different mobile providers in the Eastern Caribbean.

    Auditions have already taken place in Haiti for its introduction to the event.

    Network executive producer of Rising Stars, Michael Hogan, said the company was looking to include Guyana, El Salvador, British Virgin Islands and Papua New Guinea in future shows.

    This year's show in the Eastern Caribbean is being produced at a cost of US$650 000 to US$700 000.

    Auditions kick off in Barbados on Saturday and continue in each territory, ending in Dominica on August 12.

    The grand finalé is in October in Barbados. (KB)
