Beer giant Red Stripe has declared its continued support of local music with sponsorship of 'A St Mary Mi Come From.' Back from a three-year hiatus, the show promises a spectacular line-up of great Jamaican musical talent.

"We know the inestimable value of reggae and our own home-grown artistes and performers, and this is why we have thrown our support behind the music," said Nasha Douglas, Red Stripe's senior brand manager.

The show, which is the brainchild of St Mary native and international reggae artiste Capleton, is known for its promotion of philanthropy and community building. Proceeds from the event will go towards providing health and educational assistance for residents of the parish.

"We appreciate what the show is trying to achieve through conscious reggae music and community building. The Red Stripe brand is committed to nation building and capitalising on the magic of our music by providing our local artistes with a platform to showcase their talent," said Douglas, adding that the brand was confident that the show would deliver what was needed now in the entertainment industry.

Celebrating its 12th staging, the event will return to its official home at the Gray's Inn Sports Complex in Annotto Bay, St Mary, today headlined by Capleton. Other performers include Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Coco Tea, Barrington Levy, Romain Virgo and Chronixx.
