Jean Bélony Murat, known as BélO, is a Haitian singer and guitarist who never ceases to seduce us with his Reggae rhythm. Born October 29, 1979, in Croix-des-Bouquets, this composer is a regular at the national and international prize. During this competition organized by Unsigned Only this performer of “ Lakou Trankil ” won the Grand Prix and the Fandemonium and, since then, he only reinforces his gallery of trophies.
Indeed, this musical reward competition, organized for eight (8) years, aims to find an exceptional and talented performer, perhaps a group, a solo artist, whether it is new or of great renown. Aimed at an audience that is not signed by a major record company or its subsidiaries, the Unsigned Only contest, offers many advantages such as: professional networking, mentoring and 20,000 USD in person. This is how he was able to bring together more than 7000 postulants (candidatures), spread over 109 countries.
The author of “Jasmine”, BélO, winner of the twenty-fifth edition of the Prize Discoveries RFI in 2006, with the song “ Eda ” on her sixth album: “ Motivasyon “, won both the jury prize and the audience prize (vote ). BélO, who had asked to be voted on for him, made no secret of his satisfaction, and thanked the Haitian public, after coming out the big winner. Undoubtedly talented, this artist, composer, continues to raise our two-tone color, also engaging, with his talent, in the struggles against social inequalities in Haiti. Thus, he boasts of being a socially engaged and useful actor.
Haiti is marked today by all the signs of chaos: the movement of high school students and national schools, the marches of teachers, the struggle for the appointment of graduates of the École Normale Supérieure, assassinations everywhere, gang wars, the demands of the police officers of Phantom 509, etc. Misery and despair mark the daily lives of many people who live below the poverty line. Despite all this, there are some people who are disproportionately optimistic about the future of this country, and others, including artist BélO, who sing about our sorrows and advocate, in their own way, for a better future. This spark of hope drives our artists of all categories to give their best, and to win prestigious awards. And BélO, this internationally renowned Haitian artist, has just won two prizes in the musical competition of Unsigned Only the Grand Prix and the Fandemonium .
Let's celebrate feat of artist BélO in this chaos!
