Born into an African American family with deep cultural roots in the
Carolinas and West Indies, Carole Fredericks moved to Paris in 1979 to
pursue her dream of a music career. Leaving her country behind but not her
roots, she emerged as a powerful singer who wove the passionate threads of
blues, jazz, gospel and R&B into a uniquely French tapestry.
"Shine" in the Gospel/Christian category
"Let Him Be Blues" in the Blues category!
With almost 19,000 entrants, only roughly one percent of all entrants have
been selected as finalists. This is an incredible achievement, and CDF
Music Legacy is very proud of this accomplishment. All finalists' songs
will now be sent to the ISC celebrity judges who will select the winners.
ISC will announce the winners in April as soon as the results are in.
