Ras Dara Hosts 13th Annual Tribute to Reggae Legends

The thirteenth annual tribute reggae legend Lucky Dube is being held in Belize City on Sunday.  The yearly concert is a means for philanthropist Dara Robinson to raise much needed funds for his school feeding program.  The event being held at the Birds Isle will feature live performances from Bredda David and the Tribal Vibes as they cover songs from the late musical icon Lucky Dube.  Earlier today, News Five spoke with Ras Dara about this weekend’s event.
