Jody Kay poses with her winning cheque in the amount of $1 million as the 2015 Digicel Rising Stars.
Jody-Kay is the winner of season 12 of local talent competition, Digicel Rising Stars.

Jody Kay – a biology teacher at the St Andrew Technical High School – was in the final battle with Marsha K for the top spot and bragging rights.

As part of her prizes, she takes home $1 million cash and an album distribution deal.

A front-runner known for her dramatic and well-rehearsed performances, Jody Kay entered the final night confident.

Marsha Kay, the wild card entrant of Rising Stars judge, Conroy Wilson, said her confidence had steadily built going into the final night.

She received the second-place prize of $600,000.

The 26-year-old St Elizabeth Technical High School old girl was born and raised in the community of Crawford in the parish.

Following last week’s renditions of three songs each by the two finalists, the Rising Stars judges had given Jody-Kay the edge 2-1.
