Guided by its vision 'A Global Centre for Cultural Excellence', the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) continues to provide tremendous opportunities for the continuous growth and development of the creative talent of the Jamaican people.

Over the years, the highly anticipated Jamaica Gospel Song Competition is one of the many national programmes that provides a favourable platform for such development.

This year, the competition had two electrifying auditions and eliminations, which were held in Kingston and St Ann on January 29 and 31, respectively.

The semi-final is set to kick off on Wednesday under the theme 'Hitherto Hath the Lord Helped Us' at the New Testament Church of God, 51 Eastwood Park Road, St Andrew, at 6 p.m.

The 32 participants will vie for the top 10 spots.

The semi-final will take the form of a concert, featuring the 32 semi-finalists along with internationally acclaimed singing sensation Kerron Ennis, the 2005 third-place winner in the Jamaica Gospel Song Competition.

All proceeds will be in aid of charity. Persons attending are encouraged to take non-perishable food items, clothes, toys, and books for its 2013 charity programme.

The national final is slated to take place on August 4 at 7 p.m.
