Highlanda Sound Presents “Best of Sanchez Lovers Rock” (@highlanda)

Sanchez

If you’re into reggae music and of a certain age, then Sanchez is probably one of your favorite singers. With a hit-making career that began in the 1980s with a cover of “Lady in Red,” this singer has done it all musically and maintained a classy image throughout. His R&B covers can erase all former knowledge of the original songs.

Atlanta based sound system, Highlanda, captures all we love about the legendary singer in their latest podcast titled, “Best of Sanchez Lovers Rock.”

Stream and download via Highland’s Soundcloud.
