Bright Star Awards 2019

The Bright Star Awards is an urban music award. It is the brainchild and concept of Sly of Colourful Radio.

The Bright Star Awards is where we recognise and celebrate the best of UK and international Soul & Reggae for the year.

Each year we are trying to improve engagement so that UK and international artists and the music that we love can get more recognition.
