May was a month of great accomplishment for Abaco’s New Entry Band, particularly May 2.
The band’s hit song, “We Want the World to Hear Our Music,” was heard loud and clear when it topped Tempo’s Caribbean Countdown.
Fans vote for their favourite videos, and the top 10 most requested videos across the Caribbean are featured in a countdown.
New Entry Band’s video captured the No. 1 spot, and the band’s lead singer and founding member, Wilner Pierre, was ecstatic. Band members include Anderson Alcime, lead singer and percussionist; Francois Innocent, bass player; Herode Innocent, guitarist; and Joanel Petite-Dot, keyboardist.
“We were pretty excited about it, and it motivated us to start working on other projects as soon as possible,” Pierre shared. “We figured if we pushed hard enough, and kept pushing our fans to vote, somehow it would have gotten there.”
So the next step for New Entry is completing their album, and releasing another video-song combination of “Caribbean Girl” off that album.
While the win was more than enough for the band members, Pierre said they plan to reward themselves and their fans in the near future. Since the group’s inception in 2006, they have operated as a family and their fans have become an extension of that family.
On his Facebook page, Pierre profusely thanked all their fans and everyone who supported them in the voting process and who attend their events regularly.
“It really encouraged us to keep pushing and working hard towards our dreams,” Pierre emphasized. “It’s not limited to just The Bahamas, but we want to take our music global.”
