When you think of an artist who is truly versatile and talented, the name Jadine can not go without mention. Hailing from the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean, Montserrat, Jadine started her career as a songstress in 2003, and has quickly become one of the fastest rising stars in Soca. Shortly after appearing on the Soca scene she earned two separate award nominations from the Soca Awards Committee. One for Best New Female Soca Artist in 2005 and then another nod of approval in 2008 for Best Groovy Soca Collaboration for teaming up with Vincentian Soca Artist Problem Child. In testament to her growing fame in 2009, she was the New England Urban Music Award winner of Best Caribbean Female Artist.
When asked about her feelings regarding such an honor, Jadine, a beautiful, down to earth and simple woman of humble upbringing states, Of course, I see this as a validation of myself as an artist, but bigger than that, I see it as an opportunity for my country, Montserrat, to be recognized again for our contributions to Caribbean music.
Jadine says it was her family who first realized her potential. When she was fourteen they forced her to sing at her aunts wedding. Delightfully laughing at the memory Jadine says, I cried the whole time, but by the time I was eighteen, I was the queen of karaoke you could not get a microphone out of my hands. Not surprising, during the past years the demand for a performance by Jadine has spread throughout the entertainment industry.
