Neesha feels So Amazing with another award
Celebrated Barbadian gospel artiste Neesha Woodz didn’t believe that an already amazing 2017 could get any better.
But last week it did when the 30-year-old received her first international award for the hit single So Amazing.
This took place over the weekend when the tenth season of the Prayze Factor People’s Choice Awards came off in Atlanta, Georgia.
Real name Neesha Wooding, Woodz told WEEKEND BUZZ she was only made aware of her eight nominations this past June after her music was submitted by a Bahamian management group called KLR Management Group.
“I, however, did not know it was a three-stage finals. So the initial first stage was to vote. I only knew this the day before but didn’t ask anyone to vote,” she laughed.
“In the second stage of the finals I was emailed and told that out of the eight nominations I was still chosen to be entered in the categories New Artiste Of The Year and International Song Of The Year for my single So Amazing. I thought it was awesome that others from across the world still voted for me even though I didn’t have much time to rally my fan base here in Barbados,” Woodz added.
With the help of Signia Financial Inc., her pastor Reverend Dr Beverley Lashley and a few others, she was able to travel to Atlanta to attend the awards.
Speaking on how she felt about her achievement, Woodz described it as a euphoric feeling.
“I was overjoyed when I found out I was awarded with the honour of International Song Of The Year. It was a very huge accomplishment for me to know that my song stood out and was chosen over hundreds of international songs and that the DJs over there love it,” she added.
This award follows closely on the heels of the just concluded Flame Gospel Awards, where Woodz was awarded Female Artiste and Gospel Artiste of the Year as well as Female Gospel Artiste of the Year at the Caribbean Gospel Marlin Music awards. (SDB Media)
