December 2nd, 2009 will forever be Houston’s Andy Palacio Day

Andy Palacio passed away on January nineteenth of 2007, but he is still very much remembered as the musical icon who was foremost in promoting the Garifuna music and putting Belize on the world stage. At the time of his death, Andy was at his peak; his Watina CD had been released and the young man from Barranco had been named Belize’s Culture Ambassador and the UNESCO Artist for Peace. To show that he continues to make an impact as a poet, musician and artist, the Mayor of Houston, Texas, has declared December second as Andy Palacio Day.  The Proclamation was signed by Mayor Bill White on November twenty-sixth.
