After being released from prison in Jamaica after 8 years, there has been plenty of buzz going around the streets of New York, and just about every major city in the states about when/where/and whether or not Siccaturie ‘Jah Cure’ Alcock will be coming to the United States. Well, it has finally been confirmed by the Iyah Cure Music camp that Jah Cure will make his first appearance in the United States at Reggae Carifest 2007 on August 25th at Randall’s Island in New York.
“Jah Cure is on schedule to make his debut American appearance at Reggae Carifest,” confirms manager Allison Hunte. “Pending his travel arrangements come through, Jah Cure will physically be on stage at Randall’s Island on August 25th to promote his upcoming Curefest in Oc tober.”
Mentored by Reggae Legend Beres Hammond, Jah Cure’s soothing melodies and movingly spiritual lyrics, has made him one of the most recognized voices in Reggae. Since his emergence in 1997 with the Sizzla duet “Divide and Rule”, he has been a virtually unstoppable force. Even through his controversial incarceration in 1999, Jah Cure continued to crank chart-topping hit after hit, including “Jah Bless Me,” “Sunny Days,” “Longing For,” “Love Is,” “Jamaica,” “True Reflections,” “Dem Nuh Build Great Man,” and his current hit single “Sticky.”
