Millions of viewers in the United States and around the world got a burst of Caribbean rhythm and warmth when they tuned their televisions to “The Wendy Williams show” – thanks to the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department of Tourism’s month-long partnership with the popular show which hit the airwaves today.

The Virgin Islands’ Caribbean Ritual Dancers launched the promotion with a dazzling dance display of graceful and creative skills to new 2014 Carnival song “Mass is the Mission” by Virgin Islander soca artist Patrick ‘Solijah’ Farrell.

Wendy Williams greeted the dancers and kicked off the promotion, featuring “Wendy’s Hot Tropics Giveaway”, on the globally syndicated show.

The audience warmly reacted to the giveaways which include eight-day, seven-night vacations to the USVI for lucky recipients.

Wendy Williams first started as an intern at St. Croix’s WVIS radio and, following a 23-year career in radio, embarked on “The Wendy Williams Show,” which now screens nationally on BET and is syndicated across the U.S. and in 52 countries. The show has been renewed for eight seasons through 2017.

Chef Leslie “Theo” Gumbs appears on May 16, and Virgin Islands recording artist Pressure Busspipe on May 22. The partnership complements the upcoming “VI Nice” summer travel promotion.

Starting Monday, watch everyday for the word of the day and enter to win a vacation to the #USVI. These 8-day/7-night trips include round-trip airfare and a stay at one of the island’s most luxurious resorts on St. Croix, St. John or St. Thomas! Visit for more details.  NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Ends 5/25/14. Subject to Official Rules available at
