'Smile Jamaica'

And smile (In Jamaica)
Want you to smile (In Jamaica)
Get it to together right now (In Jamaica)
Get things together right now (In Jamaica)

Soulful town, roots people
Said I see that you're having fun
Rockin' to the roots man rocker
Oh island in the sun

(Extract ‘Smile Jamaica’ by Bob Marley)

Bob Marley

Jamaica is a small, beautiful island that has been plagued with hard, violent times. No doubt, blessed with talent and man-power, Jamaica is struggling to keep our people’s head above water, and let peace, love and unity reign. So to take a step further towards that ultimate goal, Ghetto Youths International is presenting, “Smile Jamaica”.

Smile Jamaica is a live-band concert scheduled to be held on Saturday, February 10, during Bob Marley week (Sunday, February 4- Sunday, February 11). It takes place in Bob Marley’s birthplace at Nine Miles, St. Ann. Already confirmed to appear are: The Marley Brothers (Stephen, Ky-Mani, Julian and Damian), Cocoa Tea, Bounty Killa, Perfect, Chezidek, Wayne Marshall and Etana.

This should be a momentous occasion as this is the first time that these four Marley Brothers will be performing on the same stage in Jamaica. They will do their own sets and will definitely bring a different vibe to the island.

This is not the first “Smile Jamaica” concert, held in Jamaica. In December 5, 1976, Bob Marley headlined the show at National Heroes Park in Kingston. Despite being attaked the night before, he murmured that he would only do one song, but once he started with War, he ended up doing a ninety-minute long performance. Eighty thousand persons were present. The vibe of that show is described as “buoyant and positive” and this one will be in keeping with that.

Admission is only $700. Sponsors are: CVM TV, Ocean Spray, Wata and Coca Cola.

Other events being planned by the Bob Marley Group of Companies for the celebration of Bob Marley’s 62nd birthday include symposiums, a film show, a concert; to be held at the Bob Marley Museum, Tuff Gong International, Culture Yard in Trench Town and Nine Miles.
