Romain Virgo is set to be the local highlight on closing night of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival. The youthful singer will perform on the festival slated to be held from Thursday to Saturday at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium for the second time.

Virgo is the only local act confirmed for that night. He will share the stage with international sensations John Legend, Dionne Warwick, Monica, and KC and The Sunshine Band. He is a talented young Jamaican reggae artiste with the soulful style of veterans in the business, making him a hit on the local and international scene.

Virgo noted that this will be a special energetic performance, dedicated to the ladies.

"My performance on Jamaica Jazz and Blues will be an important and a special performance for me, not only because it is two days after my birthday so I will still be in the birthday mood. It is going to be one of my most mature performances; and this performance will be dedicated to the ladies. I am going to sing out my life!" he said.


He urges fans to come out early to ensure that they see his performance. "I will have a lot of time on the stage so my fans will get more. Just come out early and have a wonderful time," he said.

Having performed for many international audiences, Virgo is poised to thrill both his local and international fans at the festival. He recently returned from tours in Europe, Japan, and the United States and boasts being the first reggae artiste to perform at the Country and Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, alongside Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers.

The young vocalist and media darling is expected to make magic on stage as he belts out hit tunes such as System, Can't Sleep, Who Feels it Knows it, Rain is Falling (I Want to Go Home), Rich in Love, Live Mi Life, I Know Better and the cover version of Adele's Don't You Remember.

The Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival is sponsored by the Jamaica Tourist Board, Flow, The Gleaner Company, CVM TV, RIU, Secrets, Sunset Resorts, Hilton, Half Moon, Charmin, Pringles, Bounty, Seaboard Marine, Holiday Inn, Knutsford Express, National Outdoor Advertising, Courts, Heineken, Ciroc, Johnny Walker, Wyndham Kingston, Caribbean Airlines, El Greco, Toby Inn, Intelligent Multimedia, Jablum, Pure Country, Guardsman Alarms, and Pepsi.
