The Barbados Music Awards is now becoming a most welcomed staple for music fans around the world, who awaits its presentation each year.
The show for 2010 was in honour of the late king of pop Mr. Michael Jackson who passed away on 25th June, 2009. Mr. Jackson's father Joseph Jackson attended the show to receive the International Lifetime Achievement Award on behalf of his son.
The show this year was blessed with a forty-five minute presentation by Fantasia Barrino, who has been the winner of the popular American Idol show in 2004.
Other popular artistes who have the stage include Rihanna, Alison Hinds, Edwin Yearwood, and the list goes on and on.
This show was conceptualized by Mr. Ronnie Clarke, who thought local artistes should be treated on par to foreign artistes, who at times have far more talent, and should be recognized for their hard work.
The article is not only to compliment the show, but asked question concerning the "Corner Stone Award".
This award looks a lot like a miniature Obelisk which is believed to be in honour of the god Ra. Information on the Obelisk also referred to in Barbados as a Cenotaph lines the guard wall surrounding the popular Sandy Lane Hotel.
