Caribbean artistes on BET’s Rising Icons

Melanie FionaYou don’t have to tell us in the Caribbean that our stars are on the rise.

It’s like the world is finally waking up to a Caribbean moment in sports and culture. Between our dominating sports stars like Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser and even Lewis Hamilton and our up and coming artistes like Rihanna, Hal Linton, Shontelle and Melanie Fiona, the world is getting a dose of Caribbean flavour in recent years.

And as it so happens, two Caribbean artistes – Barbados’ Hal Linton and Guyana-descended Melanie Fiona are featured in BET’s upcoming feature collaboration with Grey Goose- the Rising Icons series.

Check out some pics from Hal’s performance below.
