Last Saturday, December 10th, 2005, Belizean artists walked down the red carpet anxiously for a night of grandiose festivities and spectacular honors. Belizean “celebrities” donned their flashiest apparel while walking into the Bliss Institute for the Performing Arts to find out whether they were winners in their particular genres at the 2nd Annual Belize Entertainment Awards.
Camera lights flashed, while video cameras recorded all night long. The grand gala was organized by Global Promotions and it proved to be a “can’t miss” for next year.
The show’s hosts Kalilah Enriquez and Neal Hall from K-TV fame entertained all with their delightful jokes and happy banter. Awards were presented for various categories with an introductory performance in each genre.
Taking the coveted prizes for the night are as follows: Album of the Year – Proud to be a Christian by Johnathan Kidd, Poet – Erwin X Jones, Radio Disc Jockey Personality – EJay Hill from Krem Radio, Male Vocalist – Ryzden Claire, Gospel Band – Heavenlies, Female Vocalist – Tanya Carter, Dance Hall/Reggae Group – Belizean Entertainment, Dance Hall/Reggae Artist – Ras Indio, Soca Brukdown Fusion Artist – Leela Vernon, Punta Rock Artist – Supa G, and Sound System – Belizean Movements. Special recognition was given to Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients, Mr. Wilfred Peters and Governor General Sir Colville Young.
The night ended with a lively, energetic and great performance from Dance Hall/Reggae Group winners, Belizean Entertainment. The San Pedro Sun congratulates all winners and wishes them the best in next year’s awards.
