Jamaican reggae artist Beenie Man will be presented with a proclamation from US Councilman Leroy Comrie, for over three decades of outstanding contribution to the reggae industry.
The official presentation will take place at the inaugural Reggae Rhythm & Blues Concert slated for Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York on Labor Day Sunday, September 4, 2011.
“Beenieman has an impressive catalogue of timeless hit songs,” said Bobby Clarke, CEO of Irie Jam Radio.
“He is a celebrated dancehall recorder, a seasoned performer and is worth of this very important United States recognition, especially since he has just received his visa and can travel freely to the USA.”
Beenie Man is best known for his hit songs “Matie,” “Who Am I,” “Girls Dem Sugar” featuring Mya and for his appearance on T.I.’s 2001 hit “I’m Serious.”
