It is now down to 20.
The field was trimmed on Friday in The Student Revolving Loan Fund and Sunshine Snacks People’s Choice Competition in association with Banks at the headquarters of the National Cultural Foundation.
At the press conference, the NCF’s Marketing Officer Ashley Dyall was flanked by Entertainer Association of Barbados (EAB) Public Relations Strategist Ruel Ward, EAB President Rudy Maloney and the Barbados Association of Creatives and Artistes President Sean Carter, who signed off on the list.
The associations were all engaged from the start of the process, with Maloney Carter speaking at the competition’s launch on June 10.
Lovers of music and Crop Over were asked to select their top songs for the season by visiting vote.ncf.bb and casting their vote.
The first round of voting opened July 4 to 10 when the Top 40 songs were selected. The second round of voting opened on Saturday, July 16 and ran until Wednesday, July 20.
The Top 20 will perform at the Courtesy Garage 98.1 The One Soca Rukshun on Sunday, July 31 at 8 p.m. The Top 40 artistes named last week won $2 000.
