 PapaSan:OneBlood

The set features collaborations with American gospel artist/producer Fred Hammond on Your Eyes Are On Me and Grammy Award-winning American Christian singer-songwriter Israel Haughton and Stitchie on the title track.

Now in his late 40s, Papa San — whose given name is Tyrone Thompson — enjoyed success as a dancehall deejay during the 1980s. A decade later, he converted to Christianity and migrated to Florida. He has since released several albums including Victory (1999), God and I (2003) and Higher Heights 2008.

Other entertainers slated to perform at Liberation are Kevin Downswell, Ryan Mark, Omari, Dunamis, Goddy Goddy and Deneese Wright, all backed by On The Shout Band.

Liberation — hosted by the non-profit organisation Rescue Package Foundation — aims to raise $2.5 million. The gate proceeds will go towards a feeding programme for the Majesty Gardens Basic School, a new schoolroom for the Caring Basic School in Payne Land and a numeracy and literacy programme at DuPont Primary School, all in Kingston.
