The well organized event lived up to its expectations as everything promised was delivered and more. The show flowed smoothly, parking was up to par and entertainers delivered short but entertaining sets so it wasn’t dragged out and most important it was violence and profanity free.

Despite the absence of Jay Holiday and Sean Kingston the large crowd gathered was well entertained. Buju Banton, Shaggy, Elephant Man, Allison Hinds, Freddie Mcgregor, Marcia Griffiths, Taurus Riley, Macy Gray and the all the others did well.

Trust mi, the night was filled with good vibes and happy patrons and entertainers. Yes, entertainers were in high spirits. There was an extraordinary level of togetherness among the entertainers who performed. 

Entertainers who were not billed for the event but turned out to support the cause include Beenie Man, Lutan Fire, Qq, D’angel, Stacious, Junior Reid, Gregory Isaacs, Tami Chin, Wayne Marshall, Leftside and Cecile. 

Other celebs in the midst were Prime Minister Bruce Golding, Minister Grange, world record holder Usaine Bolt and Yendi Phillips.

The event ended minutes after one Sunday morning with all the entertainers on stage singing the newly recorded single, Save a Life.
