Sharon Gordon, a PanAfricanist and Co-founder of the Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music said she has known the artists since the early 90s when they worked in New York. She called the initiative “very timely and necessary.
“This thank you mission is just that. A way for all of us to say thank you to artists like Causion who find themselves in this situation. Illness knows no class or culture,” Gordon said.
HAMAFilms Antigua has produced a one-hour special featuring Causion, performing his original songs. It was recorded on the island of his birth Antigua and Barbuda. Causion continues to give back and says the Thank You Mission is a way for him to express his gratitude to his fans and for life.
Fellow musicians based in Antigua rallied to make the concert a reality. Bass player Devon “Bugs” Emanuel also serves as the show’s Music Director. Guitarist Adjani, M-16 on Drums, Remo the Engineer, and backup singer Simone Gordon, who regularly tours with Causion, flew to Antigua to be a part of the Special Concert.
The event is made possible with the support from local media houses Observer, ZDK ABS Radio/TV and Vybz FM. Additional support provided by the Management and Staff of the Catamaran Hotel and Kennedy’s Club Ltd.
