Veteran gospel singer Carlene Davis was honored at the annual Bring Back The Love After Labor football fiesta held at Constant Spring football field in St Andrew, recently.

Clive ‘Busy’ Campbell, organizer of the 20-year event, felt it was a fitting honor for the songbird.

“We look for people who inspire and lift up Jamaica and Carlene Davis surely fits that bill,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

The event, which began football matches between masters and celebrities, also honored RJR journalist Earl Moxam.

 Davis, an ordained minister, enjoyed a revival in 2015 with the success of her album, Dripping Blood. The album won Best Gospel Song category at the International Reggae and World Music Awards in Florida, last year.

With a career spanning nearly three decades and 12 albums to her credit, Davis enjoyed moderate success in the 1980’s. However, after being diagnosed with cancer in 1996, she rededicated her life to Christ. In 2007, she received the Order of Distinction from the Government of Jamaica for her contribution to the music industry and community development.
