Jamaican Independence Day Party


Editorial Review

Saturday is Independence Day in Jamaica, and on Sunday, Crossroads is bringing a little bit of Kingston to Bladensburg with its Love Within the Music festival. The indoor/outdoor concert will show off different sides of the island’s music: Beres Hammond is known for his soulful vocals on lovers rock and dancehall hits of the ‘80s and ‘90s; Wayne Wonder fuses reggae and R&B on such hits as “No Letting Go” and “For My Love”; and Sharon Tucker’s rich, sweet voice appeared on reggae songs by Dennis Brown and Bunny Wailer before she went solo. The show begins at 6 p.m., but gates open at 3 so attendees can browse food, drink and merchandise vendors.
