NEW YORK – As the Cayman Islands prepares for the action-packed Cayman jazz fest, BET J is getting visitors excited for this fifth anniversary of the festival sounding out in the idyllic Caribbean location from December 4 to 6, 2008.
“We are expecting another stellar production in paradise and encouraging our audiences to visit Grand Cayman for an exciting line-up of first class musical entertainment,” said Cybelle Brown, Vice President of Sales and Business Development with BET Digital Networks, which along with BET Event Productions and the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism is producing the festival.
“Grammy Award-winning artistes Michael Bolton, Anita Baker, Angie Stone, Cassandra Wilson, Norman Brown and Robin Thicke are set to woo audiences with their many and varied musical stylings,” said Brown, who added that Gerald Albright, Terrence Howard, Esperanza Spalding and Algebra complete the classy line-up of international artistes that will harmoniously complement the local Caymanian talent on show.
The 2008 Preview Show airing coincides with BET J’s fresh new look for the “Island Lime” Saturday programming line up.
American film and television actress Wendy Raquel Robinson, widely known for her role in the sitcom The Steve Harvey Show as “Principal Regina,” and currently starring as The Game’s Tasha Mack on the CW Network, teams up with local business executive Alee Fa’amoe to host the compelling preview show.
The 2008 Preview Show airs next on BET J this Saturday, November 29 at 8:30 p.m. (ET).
