A legend is now part of the big show.

Reggae legend Beres Hammond is officially in the lineup of the star-studded Caribbean Love Now Jamathon set for Nov. 22 in Kingston, Jamaica. The artist will be joining more than 30 other reggae, dancehall, and soca performers for the benefit concert. With his inclusion to the show, organizers say his popularity will help garner more attention for the show and their mission, said the organizer of the event Joe Bogdanovich.

“Beres Hammond is one the greatest performers of our time. He is a global superstar and the perfect addition to our epic line-up,” said Joe Bogdanovich. “With Beres joining Caribbean Love Now Jamathon we are adding even more power and purpose to what is going to be the most important event for Jamaican music in decades,” said Bogdanovich, founder of Caribbean Love Now.

The talents of other artists such as Sean Paul, Sizzla, Fay-Ann Lyons, Bunny Wailer, Bunji Garlin, and dozens more, will be spotlighted at the show.

Bogdanovich launched the Caribbean Love Now relief campaign to garner support from businesses and corporations, who will assist the long-term recovery process in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. He organized the concert to support this goal, and give the artists and their fans a chance to raise awareness and show solidarity with their Caribbean neighbors affected by the devastating disaster.
