The music fraternity celebrated the 61th birthday of Gregory Isaacs in July.

On July 15th, family, friends and members of the music fraternity celebrated the 61th birthday of the Cool Ruler, Gregory Isaacs. The day started with a ceremony being officiated by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church at the Dovecot memorial cemetery. A series of drumming and chanting led by Bongo Herman and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church followed. The event also included the laying of a new headstone at the tomb of the late singer.

The celebration continued at the singer’s residence in Kingston where close friends continued to remember the life and music of one of Jamaica’s greatest entertainers. The Gregory Isaacs Foundation which was recently launched is assisting the Walkers Place of Safety which caters to children that are homeless and mentally challenged.
