Jamaica Gospel Song 2020 Album now on international digital platforms

Kingston, 2 October 2020 - The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, today announced that the Jamaica Gospel Song 2020 Album is now available on international streaming platforms including Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, Spotify and Amazon Music, as of today Friday, October 2, 2020.

This international release of the Gospel album follows closely on the successful release of the Jamaica Festival Song Album, which peaked at #11 on the iTunes Reggae Album Chart in July. Now lovers of gospel music worldwide will have access to the amazing Jamaica Gospel 2020 Album.

“The moment I heard the songs I knew that they had the potential to go way beyond the competition, and I committed to facilitating the realisation of that vision. I made that commitment to the artistes and today I am proud to say, mission accomplished,” said the Minister.

“The Pandemic presented lots of challenges which affected our usual ways of operation, but we were never daunted” said Minister Grange. “The team at the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission and at my Ministry decided that the limes thrown our way could be used to make sweet tasting lemonade. We saw the success of the Jamaica Festival Song album on the international scene, and firmly believe that Gospel can reap the same level of success. This approach is giving longer life to the top ten songs and greater exposure to the artistes who have participated” the Minister added.

The Album has been available digitally via pre-order since September 18, 2020, and is being distributed by VPAL Music. Persons wishing to purchase the album may visit the various platforms to stream and download the ten-track set.

The winner of the Competition, Treisha Williams with 'One Dose of the Holy Ghost', was announced on July 26, 2020 during a live nationwide telecast of the event on CVM TV. The songs on the album span many Jamaican music genres with variations and fusions obvious in many of the tracks.

This is the first time that the Jamaica Gospel Song Album, produced by the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission as part of the annual Independence celebrations, is being made available digitally, locally and internationally.
