The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Association for Music Professionals held their second annual SVG AMP awards last Friday night. The whole event in an effort to recognize the achievements of our Vincentian artists. The event in its second year did not go off without hitches but there was an improvement from last year and that’ s a good sign.
In comparison to last year’s event attendance was up and there seemed to be an effort on the part of the attendees to adhere to the dress code. The evening proceedings went on without event for the most part (save for a few blunders by the announcers).The announcement of the winners across all categories was met with applause from those in attendance with Alston Becket Cyrus recieving a full house standing ovation as he was presented with a special honors award.
The importance and appreciation for the awards show was evident as many winners and nominees took to social media to showcase their winnings and outfits for the night.
