The inaugural edition of Antigua’s Got Talent was a huge success and we are so excited to be organising it once again. Covid has made it a little later than planned but we can’t wait to see the talent we know is out there,” said PAAWS’ public relations officer Gemma Handy.
Young singer Ajanae Bleau took home the crown in 2019, after blowing the judges away with a show-stopping performance of ‘Never Enough’ from musical biopic The Greatest Showman. The event saw 28 performers take to the stage and raised almost EC$9,000 for PAAWS.
