The embassy has now announced that the new date for their annual Black History Month concert is this Friday, March 18 and will still feature American Idol and Grammy Award winning artiste, Fantasia.

“Due to logistical issues arising from our original plans to hold the concert the day after Jamaica’s general elections, the U.S. Embassy and our partners postponed Blues on the Green 2016. We are now pleased to announce that Fantasia will headline the rescheduled concert on March 18, 2016,” a release on the embassy’s website states.

The event will be staged at Emancipation Park in New Kingston, right across from the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. The concert starts at 7:00 pm, however seating will begin at 6. Sharing the stage with Fantasia will be in-demand reggae singer Romain Virgo and the “xmall axe”  Jesse Royal. The concert is being held in partnership with the Ministry of Culture, Gender Affairs, Entertainment & Sports, which is headed by Minister Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange.

Blues on the Green is held each year in February in recognition of Black History Month and the contributions of African-Americans to American society.

Each year a special charity is chosen and this year those attending are being asked to bring educational or learning items, formula, or diapers to donate to the Women’s Resource and Outreach Centre.

Last year’s Blues on the Green was headlined by Grammy award winning group, Sweet Honey in the Rock, an all-woman, African-American ensemble that has been producing music for more than three decades.
