Reggae legend to perform at One Love concert
The North coast will get a rare glimpse of Reggae Super Star Beres Hammond today.
Hammond, who rarely performs outside of high-profile events, will be making an appearance on season two of a series in Negril known as the One Love Reggae Concert.
The concert has been going since last year and features a big artiste at the Negril Escape Resort once a week.
Jah Cure, I-Octane and Tarrus Riley are just some of those who have already turned the resort town into a reggae-crazy arena.
According to a release from the organiser, word that Hammond will be making the trip later tonight has been creating a stir, and that a bumper crowd is expected.
Hammond started his career in the late 1970s and has created a very impressive reputation as a top-class recording artiste and stage performer. Throughout his long and successful career, he has built a vast repertoire of hits including musical gems such as One Step Ahead, What one Dance Can Do, Putting Up Resistance and Groovy Little Thing.
He is extremely popular, especially among female reggae fans because of his penchant for singing soothing lovers' rock songs.
Also on the bill for the event are two promising reggae singers, Timmi Burrell who is currently enjoying much attention with songs such as Make Doh, Dark Shades and White Tees and Fresh and Clean.
The other artiste is former Messenjah lead singer Lazah Current who is known for songs such as Hey Girl and Lately.
