American singer and songwriter Miguel has been added to an already stellar cast of international artistes for the Tobago Jazz Experience 2015.
With hits like “Adorn,” “How Many Drinks,” “Do You,” and “Sure Thing” to name a few, he will perform on the night of Friday, April 24, 2015, along with Jenifer Hudson and other major acts.
He joins some of the world’s biggest stars including Hudson, Kool and the Gang, and Jill Scott in what is expected to be another highly successful Tobago Jazz Experience.
The week-long festival will take place from April 18 to April 26, 2015 and Tobago will again play host to thousands of music lovers who have made the Tobago Jazz Experience their annual pilgrimage.
There will be some new major initiatives as the Division of Tourism and Transportation works to ensure the continued improvement and innovation in the annual event.
Secretary of Tourism and Transportation, Tracy Davidson-Celestine said that she was excited by the quality of acts planned for the week of activities and said that the Division wants to build on the success it had with the headline act John Legend at Tobago Jazz Experience 2014.
“The Division of Tourism and Transportation continues to invest in this project because it has the effect of benefitting ordinary Tobagonians. The Hotels, Guests’ Houses and Bed and Breakfast properties are all full during this time. This means waiters, taxi drivers, street food vendors, bar owners are just a few who benefit from the Tobago Jazz Experience,” Mrs. Davidson-Celestine said.
She added that her Division wants to encourage ordinary Tobagonians to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the tourism industry.
Mrs. Davidson-Celestine added, “The Jazz Experience also helps to build indigenous Tobago businesses and I want to encourage Tobagonians to not be afraid and take opportunities to be successful by getting into the business of tourism. When one looks at the people who are entrepreneurs and are in the tourism business, one can see the economic potential and I urge particularly young Tobagonians to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the growing sector.”
The Tobago Jazz Experience takes place from April 18-26, 2015 and in the coming weeks, the names of additional international, regional and local stars will be revealed in what promises to be the biggest Jazz Experience ever.
