The 2008 Soca Awards list of Honoree Recipients and Nominees


(First of all it's a shame that there were so many misspellings in this list which I copied and pasted from the Soca Awards Organization. Disappointing! I tried to make corrections but there may be some I missed. Blame those who put this list together, not me.)
