Since 2009, the Shaggy & Friends Charity Concert has raised more than US$1.6 million and has donated equipment and supplies to Bustamante Children’s Hospital in Jamaica, — the only pediatric hospital in Jamaica and English-speaking Caribbean. Donate here. The event is slated for the lawns of Jamaica House, this evening. The live stream, hosted by Miss Universe 2014, Kaci Fennell, begins at 7:30PM.
The show will feature performances by American rapper Nelly, R&B singer Ashanti, female R&B quartet En Vogue, and US Virgin Islands’ R City and international chart-topping Jamaican act OMI.
They will be joined by veteran band Inner Circle, Bugle, Ding Dong, Beenie Man, Ghost, Terror Fabulous, Nadine Sutherland, Tanto Metro and Devonte, and gospel artiste Kevin Downswell.
Are you in the USA? Here’s another way you can give to the Shaggy and Friends Foundation: As a sponsor for Shaggy and Friends 2016, iHeartMedia Inc. has provided a text campaign for those based in the USA to donate.
Text: “Shaggy” to 25383 to donate US $9.99 to the Shaggy account at Food for the Poor. 100 % of all donations will be going to the Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation.
Tonight will be the first time in over a decade people will see Terror Fabulous and Nadine Sutherland perform their 1994 hit single “Action.”
“We’re trying not to repeat too many artistes. But there are artistes that people have not seen in a while, and they are great,” said Shaggy in a previous interview.
