Cocoa Tea And Friends Rock Out To Support Jamaica's Athletes
Published April 25, 2008

This past Sunday, Reggae legend Cocoa Tea and his musical brethren rocked Brooklyn College’s Walt Whitman Theater for the ‘Team Jamaica on the Road to Beijing’ Reggae Charity Concert. Audiences were treated to the drum and bass sounds of the island, while raising much needed money to fund Jamaica’s athletes on their journey to dominate the XXIX Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China this August.

 

Roots Reggae newcomers Jamelody, Duane Stephenson, and ‘The Strong One’ Etana, thrilled supporters with a mix of Reggae and R&B standards and brand new singles off their upcoming albums. Critically acclaimed singer Gyptian wowed audiences with a totally unexpected cameo. Veteran Lover’s Rock crooner Richie Stephens belted out tune after tune from his catalogue of classics, including the crowd-favorite cover of Dennis Brown’s “Should I,” and his Jamaica Tourist Board anthem “Come to Jamaica.” Headliner Cocoa Tea brought the house down, closing the show with “Barack Obama,” a musical endorsement to the Democratic presidential contender.

 

Part proceeds from the “Team Jamaica on the Road to Beijing” Reggae Charity concert will assist TJB in providing subsidized travel and accommodations, meals, ground transportation, and athletic scholarships to Jamaica’s outstanding  high school track and field athletes.
