Wyclef, Usher and Emile Sande promise breathtaking performances in Curacao

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao -- The much anticipated Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, which will feature international music sensations like Usher, Lionel Richie, Emeli Sandé, Wyclef Jean, Enrique Iglesias, and John Legend among several others, seems all set to maintain its reputation as the annual summer entertainment highlight of Curacao.

The 2015 version of the event, which kicks off on September 3, is expected to attract hundreds of visitors to Curacao particularly from the Latin American region.

So high are visitor expectations that seats aboard carriers like Insel Air and Copa are almost booked out from the south side, with practically no seats available even on many inbound daily flights from some Latin American destinations, right up to September 3, 2015.

Tour operators are adamant that thousands of prospective visitors from places such as Trinidad, Venezuela, Colombia, Suriname and Guyana would have raided their savings in a bid to get a potentially once in a lifetime opportunity to see so many Grammy awarded performers on one stage.

In an exclusive interview with the Curacao Guardian, Scottish singing sensation Emeli Sandé said that Curacao can expect nothing but a grand performance from her.

Usher’s camp and a spokesman for Wyclef have also separately confirmed their commitment to giving the Dutch Caribbean Island of 152,000 people, a breathtaking performance that would make it worth the wait.

Tickets for the event are currently on sale for $195 each and are available at several leading ticket outlets in over half a dozen countries, including Suriname, Colombia and Venezuela.
