Pay Attention To People Around You

By Cherine Anderson

You wont believe this story ๐Ÿ˜ณ

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.

โ€œBut this nuh done?โ€ I thought, โ€œHim nuh finish writing this songโ€

Second thought ๐Ÿค” โ€œBut this is brilliant. If the audience hate the song I donโ€™t have to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on a releaseโ€ฆ..right?โ€. OK ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜†

It was in that moment that ๐—œ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—บ๐˜†๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—œ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐˜† #๐—ง๐—ฅ๐—ฌ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐˜†.

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

โœ… Little Cherine was singing with who? You mean THE I-Threesโ€ฆ(Iโ€™m still sooo grateful for this moment)

โœ… It was also the first time in the history of the festival that thereโ€™d be FEMALE headliners.

So, we each got our individual sets.

And I decided to perform my unreleased happy tune called #TRY.

๐—”๐—ก๐—— ๐—๐—จ๐—ฆ๐—ง ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ž๐—˜ 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
