Reggae singer Ernie Smith, who rose to prominence in the 1970s, will be having a Crismus Cantata at the University of the West Indies – Mona Campus on Sunday, December 4th. The concert will be held in the university’s chapel.
Smith will perform live, and will be joined by two other accomplished artists: Gem Myers and Boris Gardiner. Starting time is 5pm, and there is a $6,000 JMD entrance fee.
Ernie Smith‘s first chart success came in the late 1960s with Bend Down, which was followed by several hits in Jamaica: Ride on Sammy, One Dream, and Pitta Patta. In 1973, he was honored by the Jamaican government with The Badge of Honor For Meritorious Service in the Field of Music.
