Veteran reggae singer Freddie McGregor broke the mould last Thursday night, delivering his first live performance since January, at the Moon Palace Jamaica in Ocho Rios, St Ann.

McGregor, who has become a staple on some of the country’s biggest virtual events, including the world-renowned Reggae Sumfest and the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission’s popular Festival Song Competition, brought down the house on Independence Day, confirming that nothing beats live and direct interaction with an audience.

McGregor’s performance put the lid on a full day of activities at the resort, which saw the showcasing of Jamaica’s culture and heritage in commemoration of Independence Day.

Earlier in the day, guests and members of the media were treated to a variety of Jamaican dishes, as well as performance by a Jonkanoo group and a medley of Jamaica Cultural Development Commission Festival-winning songs.
