REGGAE artiste Beres Hammond will headline In The Streets Togetherness, a charity concert, scheduled this evening at Waves Beach in Portmore, St Catherine.
The proceeds will be used to assist street boys and was made possible by Street Scholar Promotions in association with Fire and Blue. Spicey Couture is a sponsor of the event.
"We as artistes believe in teaching a man to fish. Having met with two of these street boys, as they are called, they were invited to the studio and soon they became a fixture. They are always eager to learn and to help. They proved to be honest and hardworking, so we decided to assist them without it being a handout."
According to Beres Hammond: "This is one event I certainly could not say no to. Giving back is an essential part of life, no matter where on the ladder you stand. If I can extend a helping hand - whether to the youth or to the elderly. I am honoured to do so. I feel it is my duty and on Sunday at the beach it will be all about 'feel good'."
The line-up includes George Nooks, Kip Rich, Doctor Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Toya, Ras Bogle, Empress Tashai, and Ultimate. Musical juggling will be provided by Rebel T and Stone Love.
