Mr. Vegas to Host Mother's Day Concert on May9th


I Am Blessed singjay Mr. Vegas will be hosting a Mother's Day concert at Club Jamaica-Jamaica in Runaway Bay on May 9th. It is a highly anticipated event where the Billboard-charting artiste can really show his appreciation to mothers all over Jamaica.

The singjay, who recently performed at a huge concert in Orlando alongside R & B heavyweights such as Ron Browz and Billboard-topping rapper Soulja Boy, is reportedly locked away in rehearsals fine-tuning his sound for the concert. He will be backed by his own band, Thugz on the night of the event.

"They have been rehearsing at Mikey Bennett's studio on Grafton Road, and everyone is impressed with the set that Mr. Vegas has put together," manager Ray Alexander said in a release.

"Earlier this week, during a rehearsal session, he did an a capella of Mama with backup singers, Nicky and Tameka that had tears streaming down the eyes of everyone in the studio, Vegas seems to be going all out with this concert.

It will be the artiste's last performance in Jamaica before he embarks on a four-week tour of major European cities, which begins on July 17th. He will break for a one-off date on July 25th for a gig in Rochester, New York, and then return to Europe to complete the tour. The singer will not return to Jamaica until August 25th.

In the meantime, the singjay’s latest song, Mama Don't Cry for Me, directed by accomplished director Winston Mayhew, has been getting rave reviews from critics and fans alike.

"It's a really amazing video that the Jamaican people can gravitate towards especially with Mother's Day around the corner, and the response has been phenomenal so far," Mr. Vegas said.

The singjay has been in awesome form during his recent live performances, performing in US states such as California, Minnesota and in France.
