AMERICAN IDOL WINNER FANTASIA, HEADLINES THE FREE CONCERT “BLUES ON THE GREEN” IN KINGSTON, FEBRUARY 26!

 Fantasia—

AMERICAN R&B singer Fantasia is the headliner for the annual Blues on the Green concert scheduled for Emancipation Park in St Andrew, on Friday, February 26.

The free concert, now in its 24th year, is hosted by the US Embassy in Kingston and commemorates African-American History Month. Showtime is 7:00 pm and this year’s theme is Out of Many, One!

Joshua Polacheck, the Embassy’s counsellor for public affairs, said this year’s event should spark “a dialogue on how our two countries can be more inclusive. I hope this gets everyone thinking about what it means to respect all people, what ‘One Jamaica for all Jamaicans’ really means.”

Fantasia rose to fame as winner of season three reality television series American Idol in 2004. Following her victory, she released her debut single I Believe, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Subsequently, her debut album, Free Yourself, went certified Platinum and got three Grammy nominations in 2006.
