Reggae artiste Chuck Fenda is looking to start 2011 on the right note, as he readies himself for Saturday's Pepsi Rebel Salute which is to be held at the Port Kaiser Sports Complex, St Elizabeth.

Riding high off his single Good Man In Your Life, on the Big Stage rhythm for Penthouse Records, the artiste is confident that the upcoming performance will be a good one.

"I am going to shell down Rebel Salute this weekend. This is a new rejuvenated Living Fire, I have a new management team, and a new marketing team behind my career, so I am going there to represent for my people, and show that the Living Fire still blazes, cyaah cool," said Fenda.

The Good Man In Your Life single recently climbed to number two on the Hype TV VTX video charts this week, peaked at number seven on the Jamaica Music Countdown charts, and also graced charts in South Florida, New York and France late last year.

"The ladies really love this song, and they have responded well to the video. It is one of my favourite videos, right up there with Are You Coming Over Tonight," said the singer.

Got Me To Love You for Sankofa Records on the Good Over Evil rhythm, has also been doing well for the artiste.

With only days gone in the new year, it is already beginning to look good for the singer.

"The year 2011 is shaping up to be a successful one for the Living Fire and the response on the Internet to my latest singles, especially Got To Love You is very encouraging, so everything is set for Rebel Salute," he said.

Rebel Salute is an important calendar event in the world of reggae music and has always served as the launching pad for a successful year for Fenda, who generally goes on to consistently deliver outstanding performances on major stage shows across Jamaica and the rest of the world.

I Swear, Herbalist Farmer, Better Days, Hypnotise and God Is My Witness, are some of the songs that the artiste might deliver to patrons.

Other entertainers on the line-up for the stage show include Beres Hammond, Toots and the Maytals, Tarrus Riley, Jack Radics, Queen Ifrica, I-Octane, Khago, and Romaine Virgo.
