Entertainers Against Crime and Violence 2017
ENTERTAINERS AGAINST CRIME: !!!It’s Here Again!!! “ENTERTAINERS AGAINST CRIME AND VIOLENCE 2017”. The massive Concert, free to the public, returns to Dump Up Beach, Montego Bay, December 2, 2017.
This marks the second staging of the annual event that features established and emerging artistes and bands. It will include Jamaican international stars, lending their voice and musical talents in solidarity against crime and all forms of violence, especially in western Jamaica where the crime statistics are again on the rise.
With this revised edition of the event, the promoters intends to partner with other entities and sponsors to improve on last year’s production making the voices louder to ultimately reach wider audience. This is to demonstrate that we are tired of this monster called crime and violence, including gender-based violence, which grossly affects every sector of our society including the entertainment sector where staging certain events may become a thing of the past.
The first staging held December 4, 2016, was a major success with a blend of over 65 artistes and bands both Gospel and Secular artistes coming together from all across Jamaica performing to an audience of over 20,000 persons. The concert starts at 3 pm, spans over 8 hours ending before mid-night.
The promoters are once again calling on the Jamaica business community and well-wishers to rise to the occasion with financial support to make this year’s event even more successful than the first staging.
“music plays a vital role in the development of the minds let’s, play on”.
