Smile Jamaica Concert Returns to Nine Mile, St Ann in Jamaica

The annual Smile Jamaica concert in honour of the life and legacy of the Hon. Robert Nesta Marley returns to the birth place of the Reggae icon, Nine Mile, St. Ann in Jamaica on Saturday, February 6.

In 2008, the Smile Jamaica and Africa Unite concert experiences united for a memorable event, and Smile Jamaica took a break in 2009. For the 2010 installment, Smile Jamaica returns to the cool hills for an unforgettable concert within walking distance of the Reggae Iconxs final resting place.

Part proceeds from the concert will go to the Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment U.R.G.E. Foundation and the Ghetto Youth Foundation, the charitable arm of Ghetto Youths International founded by Bob Marley's offspring. The foundation provides support for schools and reading programmes in St. Ann and Kingston. The organization has also provided assistance to hospitals and clinics to benefit children of lesser means and greater need.

Members of the Marley family are expected to deliver performances along with a cadre of top reggae, dancehall and international performers. Ghetto Youths will release the lineup and other key details in early 2010.

The concert will be a signature event during Bob Marley Week and Reggae Month and enjoys the support of the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and the Jamaica Culture and Development Commission (JCDC). Bob Marley's birthday, Saturday February 6, is the date for the concert at Nine Miles, St. Ann.
