It’s time for emerging artistes to return to the spotlight.

The Trinidad and Tobago Music Company Limited (MusicTT) has launched another open call for enrolment in the annual Spotlight programme. Artistes and instrumentalists within the local music industry who are looking to take their career to the next level in cohort four of the programme are invited to sign up.

MusicTT’s Spotlight programme seeks to identify artistes and instrumentalists who have the potential to advance in the music industry and equips them with the knowledge and tools to leverage their creative talent on the local and worldwide market.

An independent panel will collaborate with MusicTT in order to transparently select six (6) musical artistes to be a part of Spotlight. Artistes will then go through a series of workshops and training courses that will cater to their developmental needs including, but not limited to, vocal/ instrumental training, stage performance, brand and social media strategy, styling and EPK development.

Musician Emmanuel Joseph on the steelpan, was part of the previous cohort.

Spotlight launched its first intake in December 2017 with the selection of 10 artistes by international judges. To date, 2 cohorts totaling 19 artistes have successfully completed Spotlight. The current third cohort of 8 artistes who emerged from the Limited Edition Digital (L.E.D.) Spotlight Showcase, are still undergoing training until their final Showcase in 2021. Spotlight artistes have successfully secured international performance opportunities, tours, album launches and sync opportunities.

“MusicTT is proud of the accomplishments of the spotlight artistes, past and current, to date” stated Melissa Jiménez, General Manager of MusicTT. “Each artiste has shown significant growth by the end of the programme. We are looking forward to seeing what this new cohort brings and how we can help them reach their maximum potential.”
