Tomorrow, reggae artiste Sizzla will close the 2014 series of Live in the City concerts at CRU Bar and Kitchen on Lady Musgrave Road, St Andrew.

Once again, part proceeds from the live music event will go towards a charity of the performer's choice. Tomorrow's staging will seek to raise funds for an inner-city school, feeding programme and the Sizzla Youth Foundation.

So far, Live in the City has raised just under $1 million for various charities.

Sizzla is the fourth headliner in the series, after Konshens, Tarrus Riley, and Beenie Man. Sharing the stage with the main performers have been Bugle, Duane Stephenson, Chevaughn, Delus, Javada, A-Game, Fambo, and others.

Live in the City, which was launched on Wednesday, August 20, this year, is a live music series produced by Marriott International Productions and co-sponsored by Caribbean Producers Jamaica, Mercedes-Benz, and Boom Energy Drink.

The first event featured Konshens and members of the Subkonshus team in a benefit show, with part proceeds in aid of law student Lanesa Downs' fight against lupus. This was followed by Tarrus Riley, Dean Fraser, and the Blak Soil Band on September 3, with part proceeds channelled to students in St Thomas. On September 24, King of the Dancehall Beenie Man performed his set, part proceeds from that night supporting the Lupus and Sickle Cell foundations.
