  • From Reggae Rockstar to Gospel Crusader: The Epic Journey of Shalom! #Reggae #Gospel #MusicLegend

    12 GIU 2024 · SHALOM!!! Get ready for a reggae redemption story that will have you shouting "Hallelujah!" and skanking to the beat all at once. Today, we delve into the incredible life and music of Stephen Omar Harper, better known by his stage names: Stevie Wonder (yes, you read that right!), and the mighty Shalom! Shalom's journey began in 1968, in the heart of Kingston, Jamaica. Music coursed through his veins from a young age, with the eight-year-old already belting out tunes. Fate intervened when he met the legendary Sugar Minott, founder of Youth Man Promotion Recording Studio. This is where Stevie Wonder, the name (don't ask!), transformed into a teenage reggae enthusiast soaking up knowledge under the wing of a master. Image of Sugar Minott Sugar Minott Those early days saw Shalom touring the globe as a backup vocalist alongside the likes of the late Jennifer Lara. He crisscrossed continents, experiencing the electric energy of reggae fans in England, Germany, France, Canada, Japan, the US, and even Africa! Image of Reggae Concert Crowd Reggae Concert Crowd By 1997, it was time to step out of the shadows. Shalom emerged, and with him came the smash hit "Baby I've Got News For You." This wasn't just any song; it dominated the charts in Jamaica, England, and even Malawi for a whopping 14 weeks! Love songs like "I Love You Forever" solidified Shalom's place as a reggae force to be reckoned with.

During a US tour, Shalom reconnected with his fiancée, Rose Hamilton, who was deeply involved in ministry work. A spiritual awakening followed, leading Shalom to embrace Christianity. Image of Bible This newfound faith led to a new direction. In 2004, Shalom, now an ordained pastor, released his debut Gospel album, "Never Changing God." His music continued to evolve, with tracks like "Jesus Don't Stop At All" winning him the Caribbean Gospel Award. Image of Shalom performing Gospel Music Shalom performing Gospel Music Shalom hasn't forgotten his roots, though. Collaborations with reggae and Gospel artists like Glacia Robinson and Avalanche showcase his ability to bridge genres. Image of Shalom collaborating with other musicians Shalom collaborating with other musicians And the beat goes on! His latest single, "Mi Daddy Nuh Dead," is a testament to Shalom's ever-evolving sound and message. So there you have it, folks! From reggae rebel to Gospel warrior, Shalom's story is an inspiration to us all. His music continues to bridge cultures and uplift spirits, reminding us that faith, love, and a killer reggae beat can truly move mountains!

  • King Kong Reggae Interview

    20 MAG 2024 · Reggae legend King Kong, also known as Dennis Thomas, emerged in the early 1980s Jamaican music scene alongside other iconic artists like Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty. His talent was quickly recognized by the legendary producer King Tubby, who brought him on board to record several singles for the Firehouse label, including "Step On Dem Corn," "Aids," and "Babylon."
