Jamaican Reggae Band Morgan Heritage Celebrate Brooklyn Royally


A report by Roland Hyde for News Americas Now.

Jamaican Reggae Band Morgan Heritage recently thrilled fans at the Celebrate Brooklyn concert series with a truly outstanding and absolutely memorable performance.

The Grammy Award  winner had thousands of diverse fans on their feet grooving and singing along to hit after hit including “Reggae Brings Back Love,” “She’s Still Loving Me,”  ”Down By The River,” “Don’t Haffi Dread To Be Rasta,”  “Do You See Anything To Smile ‘Bout?,” “Roots” and many more.

While celebrating Brooklyn, Morgan Heritage also celebrated their Grammy Award win with Biggy Small’s famous Grammy acceptance quote: “Brooklyn, we here!”

Gramps Morgan then invited his dad, singer Denroy Morgan to center stage to shower him with love and affection for his tremendous support through the years, and for insisting that they pursue a career in music. They dedicated the Grammy to him, noting: “Daddy, this Grammy is for you.”

Morgan Heritage also paid tribute to other pioneers who paved the way and inspired them. They saluted Toots Hibbert of Toots and the Maytals as the creator/originator of reggae with ‘Bam Bam’ and then sent shouts out to Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs, Peter Tosh and Freddie McGregor.

Morgan Heritage also called for support for incarcerate singer Buju Banton and Gramps Morgan sang Banton’s version of “The Lord’s My Shepherd I Shall Not Want.”

Gramps also displayed his deejay {rap} skills by impersonating Banton, to the delight of the crowd. It was truly a royally entertaining night indeed.
