Grenada: Jeverson Ramirez became the first Grenadian to secure a golden ticket on the American Idol Show, which was aired on Sunday, February 28, 2023. The achievement provided him the opportunity to travel to Hollywood for the next round of competition. 

The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, and Culture congratulates Grenadian Soul/Pop Artiste Jeverson Ramirez on receiving a golden ticket on his audition on the ABC American Idol Show. 

Ramirez, who is from the village of Mardigras, St. George’s made history by being the first Grenadian artiste to perform on the American Idol stage.

Jeverson Ramirez is well known for his sweet soulful voice and energetic performances at events throughout Grenada as well as abroad. The Grenadian singer/songwriter thrilled judges with his international flavour, which, according to judge Lionel Richie, made quite an impression as the show celebrates its “twenty-first birthday around the world”.

Being a proud representative of the Spice Isle of the Caribbean, Jeverson was seen waving his Grenada flag and his golden ticket in the American Idol video which circulated on Facebook on Monday.

Minister of State with responsibility for Youth and Sports, Ron Redhead said this achievement by Ramirez speaks volumes of the talents that young Grenadians possess.

He also commended the Grenadian artiste for his perseverance and zeal in pursuing his musical dreams. He said Ramirez is a living example that dreams come true if you remain focused.

Minister Redhead stated that the government will continue to push the creative arts industry as one of the areas that will identify, develop, and promote the skills and creativity that exist in the Grenadian people.

While congratulating Ramirez, Sports Ministry added, “Congratulations to Grenadian Singer/Songwriter Jeverson Ramirez on Making History on the American Idol Show as “the first Grenadian to touch the stage.”  

“Grenada’s singing sensation Jeverson Ramirez will be off to Hollywood after a successful audition in Season 21 of American Idol.
