RADICS8The production, entitled A Caribbean Style Mother’s Day, will be dedicated to mothers in celebration of Mothers Day, Sunday May 8. Part proceeds from the event will be donated to Young People Matter (YPM), a youth organization that provides assistance to young people and families in need. According to Michelle Knight Stanley, CEO of Radics’ Sound Faculty label and Producer of the show, A Caribbean Style Mothers Day will be an event to remember.

“This show will be a true love letter to moms, and is so special to us and to South Florida audiences for a number of reasons. For one thing, it will be the Jack’s first performance on a Florida stage in over two decades. His audiences there have been waiting and clamoring for this and we are so happy to be now giving them what they have been asking for. Secondly, Jack’s reverence for women in general and mothers in particular is so much a part of who he is, that sentimentally, the show will be packed with musical moments for mom and the family that will set just the right tone for Mother’s Day weekend. Thirdly, this will be Jack’s first live performance since pledging his unwavering support to a great organization, YPM, which is doing such amazing work for and on behalf of young people .

We are anticipating a packed house so we can give them the support they so richly deserve.” Knight Stanley is also excited about the stellar lineup of other guest artistes committed to the show, which draws from the worlds of music, theater, film and television to ensure a very different aesthetic experience. “Those names will be released shortly, but believe me this will be much more than just a music concert … Jack Radics has spent many years in careful consideration of the musical compositions and lyrics in which he has embodied his art.

Sound Faculty whose motto is “Engage Mind B4 Mouth” is taking the same care to create memorable entertainment experiences for Jack Radics audiences. There will be other elements and artists involved that will transcend the music art form… I can say with certainty it will be a unique evening to cherish for moms and the entire family.” In a career spanning nearly three decades, Jack Radics has sold over three million records worldwide and is in the Guinness book of World records for recording the fastest selling reggae remake ever of a popular song- “Twist and Shout”- on which he collaborated with fellow Jamaican artists Chaka Demus and Pliers, in 1993.
