New York, NY (November 15th,  2009) - Soca Awards Organization, Inc. regrets to inform the public that the 7th Annual International Soca Awards Show which was scheduled for December 4th, 2009 in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Island has been cancelled due to various unforeseen circumstances.

SAO in association with Star Life Productions & Monopoly Entertainment regret the fact that this year’s 2009 iSA has to be cancelled despite the many provisions that were made in order to produce this year’s prestigious event.

The promoters felt that if the event was to fall short of iSA’s already remarkably high esteem in any aspect, that the 2009 Awards Show must be cancelled in order to continue in the cultural realm that Soca has evolved into.

Now that they are aware of the barriers that constituted this year’s cancellation, the promoters are ready to assure the public that next year’s Awards Show will definitely be one for the records. They promise to make the 2010 International Soca Awards Show a renowned and unforgettable award ceremony, and deeply apologize for any inconvenience this year’s cancellation may have caused.

SAO will be presenting the 2009 iSA Honorees and Winners with their respective awards at another disclosed time. However, SAO is happy to announce the results and congratulates all the winners of the 2009 iSA.
