New York, NY (July 3, 2024), Caribbean Elite Group unveils the night’s highest honors for the 2024 Caribbean Music Awards. These honors are given based on a rigorous selection process that considers the artists’ impact on the Caribbean music scene, their profound cultural contributions, and their overall career achievements. This year, women have taken all three honors!!  The esteemed Marcia Griffiths will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, Alison Hinds will be honored with the Elite Icon Award, and Cedella Marley will receive the Legacy Award. “The recognition of women in this year’s awards underscores the importance of their contributions to our culture and heritage. Their voices are vital to the vibrancy of Caribbean music.” – Caribbean Elite Group

The legendary Marica Griffiths has a decade-spanning career that continues to flourish to new heights. She is recognized for her critically acclaimed songs “I Shall Sing,” “All My Life,” holds the record for highest-selling single by a female reggae singer of all time with her rendition of “Electric Boogie,” and is widely known as a vocalist for the I-Threes collective who supported Bob Marley with backing vocals. Alison Hinds, known as the “Queen of Soca” for her impact on the genre, has become synonymous with Caribbean culture for her breakout hit singles “Fuluma,” “Roll It Gyal,” and more. Her musical contributions have since become embedded within the D.N.A. of Caribbean carnivals worldwide. 3x Grammy-winner, philanthropist, and more, Cedella Marley continues to persevere and enrich the heritage of Caribbean culture through music and social responsibility to fashion, arts, and beyond. The prestigious honors to each of the world-renowned, highly acclaimed artists will recognize the robust achievements of each artist unequivocally, with more honors set to be announced within the coming weeks.
