Actor/Singer Leon to Perform in NYC for a Noteworthy Cause

The Five Heartbeats

New York City is in for a treat on Wednesday, December 13, 2011 when Actor/singer, LEON will remove his acting hat and replace it with that of “Artist.”  Known for his roles in movies such as Cool Runnings,” “Above the Rim,” “Waiting to Exhale,” “The Temptations,” “Little Richard,” “The Five Heartbeats,” along with television series “OZ” and Resurrection Boulevard,” LEON will perform live, for a worthy cause, with his band “Leon & the Peoples” at Sullivan Hall.

LEON became lead singer of his own band, Leon & the Peoples in 2005 and went on to release their debut album, “The Road Less Traveled” in 2006. In 2007, the band received a nomination for the album from the International Reggae and World Music Award. Later that year, the band joined Beres Hammond and Marcia Griffiths on their thirty six city US tour, For The Love Of It Tour. Leon was also a frequent surprise guest on Beres’ 2008 A Moment in Time US tour. In 2010, the band headlined at NYC’s Aids Walk Concert in Central Park, Jazz Aspen Festival and more.

The Actor remarks, “I am never too busy to do something charity related. I am more than happy to lend assistance because the work is so important. I am urging everyone to come out and support this cause. Give A Gift, Change A Life, Make A Difference. This is what Christmas is about, giving to those who cannot afford to do so otherwise.”

 The Holiday concert, which will also feature performances by Curtis Bailey & The Clinic and Alexis Layne, is held in conjunction with The American Friends of Jamaica, who will host a Toy and Book Drive during the event. Concert goers are asked to bring a toy or book unwrapped to benefit one of the children’s homes supported by the AFJ in Jamaica.

Founded in 1982, the American Friends of Jamaica is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization built on the principles of service and philanthropy; and is established to render assistance in the areas of Education, Healthcare, and Economic Development. The AFJ works with a broad coalition of Jamaican organizations and stakeholders to bring about change in the lives of Jamaicans in need. Amongst other initiatives, our partners assist us to provide shelter to the homeless, or to send inner-city youth to camps where they learn life skills. For more information, visit

Sizzla Sounds Off on Education with New Single, “Learn To Read”

Conscious reggae star Sizzla returns with a new anthem for the youths, and a plan to encourage and empower the younger generation. The new single, aptly titled “Learn To Read,” speaks on the importance of education, as Sizzla advocates young people to learn to read and write, as a way to overcome ignorance.

“In the beginning, I spoke Amharic, which is the true language,” reveals Sizzla. “And telling the youths about the brilliance of education, and teaching them the importance of it, will empower them.”
Sizzla is a member of the Bobo Shanti sect of Rastafarians, a group that typically places a strong emphasis on education and literacy. Unlike any of his other tracks, this track focuses strongly on educating children and investing in the intellect of the youths, thus showing the humanitarian and philanthropic side Sizzla is known for. Because he is iconic, the single will have an impact on parents, government officials, and educators alike, thereby encouraging children to go to school, and learn to read and write.

 Furthermore, the song has undertones of a political agenda, one for the betterment of the youth in Jamaica, and  also timely for the upcoming December 29 elections in Jamaica. It will surely give strength to candidates seeking better budgets for education.

This single is the first tune voiced on the Gal Block Riddim, produced by 22-year old Glenroy “Frosty” Jackson for his own Lion House Music Production, based in Jamaica. It was recorded at Kalonji Records in Jamaica, by Frosty and Ainsworth, and mixed and mastered by Dave Downie and BUG for Unlock My Mind Music, at Hilltop Studio in Brooklyn, New York. The single is manufactured and distributed by Locksmith Records.

The track is now available as a single and ringtone (see links below). It is also distributed from top digital retailers worldwide, including iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, MySpace Music, VerveLife, Zune, MediaNet, Spotify, Nokia, and eMusic

Kevin Lyttle Releases New Club Banger, “Hot Girls And Alcohol”

Combining two of the world’s favorite things, beautiful women and alcohol, international soca superstar Kevin Lyttle has another hit on his hands with his brand-new single, “Hot Girls & Alcohol.” Produced on the Super Soca Riddim by Black Shadow Records, whose claim to fame is Sean Paul’s breakout hit “Gimme The Light,” this track is sure to be a dancefloor favorite, worldwide.

Released on his very own Tarakon Records, “Hot Girls & Alcohol” exemplifies the singer/songwriter’s versatility as he embraces the role of a deejay/rapper to fuse with his acclaimed signature vocal-style, forming this hybrid of island soca and pop club fusion. This is his second hit single released within one month, as he continues to blaze a trail for soca music.

“I wanted to bring my classic sound to my fans but creatively step it up a notch by rapping as well,” Lyttle discloses. “When you’re around hot girls and alcohol, it makes you feel like you can do anything, and I hope this song empowers you the same way. It’s the same fun, feel-good vibe that I always bring.”

Just having returned from a European tour this week, Lyttle remains intent on bringing Caribbean music to all corners of the globe. He is also in the studio recording new music and working with numerous producers to bring the unique flavors and blends from the islands, to the world.

Lyttle shot to international fame when his sexy single “Turn Me On” grooved all the way to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Chart, representing soca music in the mainstream market in a way that’s never been done before, and hasn’t been done since. The track was from his self-titled debut album from Atlantic Records, back in 2004.
