In a historic Digicel Rising Stars final which saw the battle for first place down to two women, Brown Sugar emerged winner over the girl with tonloads of fighting spirit, Princess Tia.
Brown Sugar had dominated the early stages of the competition but had a few hiccups the previous week and was almost eliminated after a run-of-the-mill performance on the Rock segment of the show, but bounced back to seal a well-deserved.
Princess Tia walked away with a second place cash prize of $600,000 and several other awards. Brown Sugar’s victory was the second for a female following the victory of Cameal Davis last year. However, we are yet to see the female Rising Stars really soar and, hopefully, one or both of these young ladies will rise to the occasion and get that post-Rising Stars hit song that will really launch their careers.
