Play the drum Jamaica, Mama Loves you.

Play the drum Jamaica, Papa Loves you.

Play the drum Jamaica, Play it skillfully

to the Sun, Stars, the Sky and the Moon.

Beat the drum Jamaica, Mama hears you.

Beat the drum Jamaica, Papa whispers to you,

the ocean and the deepest blue sea

as you dance moving your body gracefully,

round & round dance in the spirit of His Majesty.

Play the drum Jamaica, Play the drum.

Play it soft, loud, play it well & play it skillfully

as I dream of your greatness & your righteousness

You beautiful Palm tree!

I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
