Pic o' de Crop Finals feature: Sheldon Hope & Smokey Burke
Sheldon Hope may be a newcomer to the Pic o' de Crop Finals stage, but he is no stranger to competition. A former winner of the Caribbean Song Contest, Hope's vocal skills have been sharpened on gospel music. He was judged independently, and on Friday will be performing Man's Love Song and The Call.
Smokey Burke is no stranger to the Finals, having placed seventh in the competition last year. Although his folksinging style of presentation is not always the most exciting, his lyrics always leave food for thought. Representing the Hit Parade Calypso Tent, this year he will be performing All Politicians Is Friends and Catastrophe.
