Story Picture
If you are still filling out your social calendar for the upcoming weekend, there is one show you may want to include in your plans. On Saturday night the Belize City Centre will be rocking with the sounds of Glen Washington. The artist arrived in Belize this morning and News Five’s Jacqueline Woods was at the Philip Goldson International Airport to meet him.

There was much media fanfare for the arrival of Jamaican reggae sensation Glen Washington. The artist responsible for such hits as “Number One Girl” and “Kindness for Weakness” is here to perform at the City Centre and the show’s promoters are promising it will be a great concert.

Desmond Grenardo, Promoter

“He will be doing one show only, but it is a big show. It is three bands we have, Gilharry Seven, we have the Players it is a very strong band in Belize, a band to be reckoned with in the future and the Mew Millennium Band which is part of Glen. He came with the full entourage he’s here with everybody.”

Washington’s only advice for his fans is to come early. The show is scheduled to last four hours with as few interruptions as possible.

“Once you get moving, reggae music is like earth force once you get moving, you just can’t stop. You just have to keep going until Jah’s spirit tells you to cool out.”

Emma Burke, Manager, Lover Girl’s Productions

“He sings slow reggae and his music touch the old, the young, everybody so he is an all-arounder I can say. As for me, and I think I can speak on behalf of the Belizean public, they all love his music.”
