Etana ICS2

The Institute of Caribbean Studies (ICS) led by Dr. Claire Nelson is pleased to announce its selection of Jamaican international reggae singer Etana as this year’s Musical Ambassador for National Caribbean American Heritage Month (NCAHM), South Florida Caribbean News reports.

“We are delighted to appoint ETANA (the Strong one) as Musical Ambassador for 2014. From my first meeting with her when she was just starting out some years ago at one of her early performances at the Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston, I have been impressed by her wisdom and wit. Speaking to her then, it was clear to me that she wanted to make music that is conscious and positive. Knowing how hard it is for women to succeed in the business when they present themselves as more than sexy bodies, makes me extremely proud of her. We really are delighted that we will have this opportunity to work together” Dr. Claire Nelson, Founder, Institute of Caribbean Studies.

As NCAHM Musical Ambassador, Etana will engage a younger audience to bring awareness that June is Caribbean American Heritage Month. Etana will also continue to be a role model to her generation of young Caribbean musicians and performers.
