There's lots of excitement happening in the GMI camp at the moment, as the scoop is the legendary reggae singer BARRY BIGGS will be guest of honour at the HAITIAN EARTHQUAKE Appeal film
screening this Friday.
Now for those of you young enough to remember the days of quality music, you'll be rushing to grab hold of one the few remaining FREE tickets, available for this weekend's fundraiser. Biggs, who hails from Jamaica and resides in the USA, has treated lovers of his sound to songs such as Wide Awake In A Dream, Love on a Two Way Street, and one the ever popular Side Show. It must be said here, that the legend jumped at the opportunity to support the appeal, and will literally be traveling from the regions to get to the event.
Yep, yours truly is totally chuffed to have gained such inspirational support!
Courtesy of Gabriel Media International and their distributor Blue Dolphin Films the event will be hosted by 100 Prints, who have teamed up with the organisation Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Endorsed by the United Nations, the company aims to raise £1,000.000.00 by the one year anniversary of the quake, to help build sustainable housing and a community centre in Haiti.
Visitors to the event are invited to make a donation in order to secure a place to the screening which will be held at the luxurious Moving Picture Company, on Wardour Street, in the heart of London's Soho, WC1.
The storyline is built around a competition, mutual appreciation for music, whilst exploring the power of music and love to transcend cultural and religious barriers.
The film stars Brit heart-throb Idris Elba (The Wire), alongside the lovely Cherine Anderson (Dancehall Queen), Vaz Blackwood (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), and Son of the late Bob Marley, Kymani.
Here's a litte treat to get you ready for an outstanding evening. Let the SIDE SHOW begin ... with a trip down memory lane.

With limited tickets left, the screening will start at 6.30pm sharp!
