Machel in race for Grammy nomination

Reigning International Power and Groovy Soca Monarch Machel Montano has received first-round ballot consideration in the 55th Grammy Awards for his 2012 album, Double M, and the music video for "Vibes Cyah Done".

The first round nominations are in the World Music category in which Montano has a very good chance of making it through to the next stage.

His popularity within the American music community has increased significantly in recent months as artistes beyond the realm of soca and reggae have been introduced to Montano's music.

This because of his shows at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall in New York that were quietly attended by persons from the spheres of rock, hip-hop, Latin, pop and even country and western.

Internet sites such as Youtube and Facebook have also served Montano well in showcasing his music to thousands across the globe.

The music of Montano and other soca artistes is now heard regularly throughout Manhattan and not just in the West Indian communities of Brooklyn and Queens.

This first round consideration may not be in a category specifically for soca music, but it's a very positive step towards the Recording Academy (The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) creating a specific category for the soca/calypso genre.

The process towards receiving the final nomination for a Grammy Award begins with members of the Academy and record companies submitting entries, which are then screened for eligibility and category placement.

The Academy's voting members, all involved in the creative and technical processes of recording, then participate in the nominating process that determines the five finalists in each category and then the final voting process which determines the Grammy Award winners.

Recording Academy members and record companies enter recordings and music videos released during the eligibility year which they consider worthy of recognition in the Grammy Awards process.

Reviewing sessions by more than 150 experts in various fields are held to ensure that entered recordings meet specific qualifications and have been placed in appropriate fields such as Rock, R&B, Jazz, Country, Gospel, New Age, Rap, Classical and Latin, among others. The purpose of screenings is not to make artistic or technical judgments about the recordings, but rather to make sure that each entry is eligible and placed in its proper category.

First-round ballots are sent to voting members in good dues standing. To help ensure the quality of the voting, members are directed to vote only in their fields of expertise and they may nominate in the four general categories—Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best New Artist—and in no more than nine out of the 29 fields.

Ballots are tabulated by the independent accounting firm of Deloitte.

The final nominations will be announced on December 5.

It was converse outlet in the moment of turning away prada outlet that I somehow learned, without looking, that coach outlet Mrs. Brissenden had also immediately moved. I nike air max wanted to look and yet had my reasons for not appearing to do it baseball bats too quickly; new balance in spite louboutin,louboutin outlet,louboutin outlet italia of which I found burberry my longchamp friends, even after an hollister interval, still distinguishable as separating for oakley sunglasses the avoidance replica watches of comment. Gilbert ralph lauren uk Long, rising directly after his associate, had iphone 6 cases already insanity workout walked mont blanc away, but this associate, lingering wedding dresses where longchamp outlet she stood and swarovski crystal meeting me hollister with it, availed herself of the occasion to swarovski show that she wished to nike air max speak to me. Such was the juicy couture outlet idea juicy couture outlet she threw out on my forthwith going to michael kors her. “For north face outlet a nike blazer few minutes — presently.”She hesitated long enough montre pas cher for me to judge supra shoes her as a trifle surprised at ferragamo shoes my being so ready — as if pandora jewelry indeed she had ray ban sunglasses rather hoped karen millen I wouldn’t michael kors outlet be; nike roshe run which would have michael kors outlet been nike air max an easy pretext to hollister her true religion outlet to gain babyliss time. jordan shoes In fact, with a mulberry face not quite like the brave michael kors outlet face she had at each step hitherto shown me, yet unlike in a fashion vans pas cher I should certainly not ralph lauren have been able thomas sabo to define on the spot; with polo ralph lauren outlet an expression, in short, that pandora charms struck me as oakley sunglasses taking refuge in gucci outlet a general reminder that not my coach outlet convenience, but her nike free run uk own, was in question, she replied: “Oh, no north face outlet — but before it’s longchamp too late. A few minutes hence. Where shall you be?” she north face asked with a burberry outlet online shade, as I imagined, of polo ralph lauren outlet awkwardness. She had burberry looked about as for symptoms of acceptance of the evening’s end on nike trainers the part toms shoes of the ladies, chi flat iron but replica watches we nfl jerseys could both see our hostess otherwise ray ban uk occupied. kate spade handbags “We don’t go up quite yet.

I hollister,abercrombie,hollister sito ufficiale,abercrombie italia,abercrombie and fitch,abercrombie outlet even chanel handbags fancied that her vanessa bruno momentary silence, combined vans shoes with the valentino shoes way she faced me — as michael kors outlet if that might speak bottega veneta for her — was sac longchamp meant for timberland boots an assurance true religion jeans that, whatever train she should take in the morning, michael kors she would arrange that it nike free shouldn’t be, converse,scarpe converse,converse italia,converse sito ufficiale,converse all star as it had been the day before, the same as gucci,borse gucci,gucci sito ufficiale,gucci outlet mine. I really true religion jeans caught in her attitude louboutin a world michael kors of new balance pas cher invidious air force reference to the jimmy choo shoes little journey birkin bag we had already made together.
