Barbados Music Fashion & Film Awards
The Legendary Awards was introduced to the world in 2010 by Visionary, Philanthropist and Entrepreneur Rhonda Wilkins. The concept was to provide a platform for “Living Legends” to be able to honor others that have made a difference in their life and/or career. Wilkins states that her passion for giving started while she was a young girl as an active member of her home church in Rome, Georgia. As a member of her church’s youth missionary group, The Junior Red Circle, Rhonda was introduced to service and the concept of philanthropy at the age of 10. As part of the organization, she was required to do community service which included visiting church members who were sick, visiting convalescent homes and reading to children at local day care centers. Additionally, she found joy in raising money for worthy causes in her church and community. In 2009, Wilkins was approached by client NBA Hall of Famer, Dominique Wilkins to coordinate his 50th birthday celebration. Dominique’s status as a basketball legend combined with such an important birthday milestone provided the perfect opportunity to launch the Legendary Awards. As a person known for turning her visions into reality, Rhonda eagerly accepted the task of creating and planning this event.

““It’s done, we are thrilled, and Atlanta will be thrilled!” said John “J” Williams, Co-Founder of ABEX and CEO of J Entertainment ATL. “Malissa Alanna occupies a niche that literally no one else on her island or perhaps in the Carribean resides. She is a blue-eyed, blonde girl from Barbados who sings Country-Pop, the last genre of music one would expect from a Bajan artist. Beyond that, Malissa Alanna has a very soulful and powerful voice far beyond her age.””
