Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Regina Belle will return to Jamaica on May 6, headlining Perry’s Pre-Mother’s Day Event.
Organised by businessman Peter Perry, the event is set for Hope Gardens and will also feature performances by the “Queen of Reggae” Marcia Griffiths, alongside stalwarts Glen Washington and George Nooks.
Perry’s Pre-Mother’s Day Event is the ‘spiritual successor’ to Perry’s All-White Birthday Affair held in Spanish Town in 2019, which was headlined by R&B trailblazers The Manhattans and attended by thousands of patrons.
Perry expressed that he is looking to surpass the success of the previous show.
“With the current line-up and venue we have a lot of confidence that we will surpass the expectations of the Jamaican people. Those who saw The Manhattans in Spanish Town know what to expect when we throw a show like this. And, those who missed it, now have a chance to have that May when they turn out to see Regina,” he said.
Regina Belle is not new to performing on the island. She performed at the Liguanea Club in 2019, and the Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in 2011.
She got her start in music as the opening act for The Manhattans. She would later on collaborate with the group on Where Did We Go Wrong?, attracting the eye of Columbia Records, after which the label signed her.
She went on to release her debut album All by Myself in 1987. In 1993, she received two Grammy Awards for the record A Whole New World, alongside Peabo Bryson.
