You wont believe this story 😳
While on tour several years ago I was the opening act for an artist who I witnessed rocked the crowd with a tune he had started writing during sound check.
“But this nuh done?” I thought, “Him nuh finish writing this song”
Second thought 🤔 “But this is brilliant. If the audience hate the song I don’t have to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on a release…..right?”. OK 😂 😆
It was in that moment that 𝗜 𝗺𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝗮 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗶𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝘆𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗜 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝘁𝗼𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 #𝗧𝗥𝗬 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝘆.
FFWD a few years later during what seemed like a musical hiatus.
I received a call to be a part of history.
I was asked to join reggae legends Marcia Griffiths , Judy Mowatt along with Sly & Robbie as part of a headlining package for Reggae on the River.
I was SUUUPPPER excited (and a shocked at the same time) because
✅ Little Cherine was singing with who? You mean THE I-Threes…(I’m still sooo grateful for this moment)
✅ It was also the first time in the history of the festival that there’d be FEMALE headliners.
So, we each got our individual sets.
And I decided to perform my unreleased happy tune called #TRY.
𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗝𝗨𝗦𝗧 𝗟𝗜𝗞𝗘 THAT
I took what I witnessed years ago, and follow the brilliant example.
They announced my name. I walked on stage, they gave me a chair and I took up my @matonguitars acoustic guitar.
And in this headlining moment I decided to #TRY
Watch the video above to see how it went over in front of thousands.
God you do have a sense of humor. You’ve been whispering messages to me in every moment. I love you. Thank you Father 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿
