Mr. Vegas & Friends For Triumphant "Sweet Jamaica" Video

Reggae vocalist Mr. Vegas gathered the cream of Jamaica's music fraternity, including Cocoa Tea, Marcia Griffiths, Freddie McGregor, Josey Wales, U-Roy, Singing Melody and more for an expanded version of his song "Sweet Jamaica." The song is a fitting tribute to the island's 50th year of independence and extolls the island's beauty and talents. 

But, as Mr. Vegas's MV music team explains, the song also benefits a social cause:
Not only does "The Voices of Sweet Jamaica" build on the success of the original song to create a fresh vibe just in time for independence celebrations but all proceeds from the sale of the all star version of "The Voices of Sweet Jamaica" will directly benefit the Mustard Seed Community in Jamaica. Mustard Seed provides residential facilities to abandoned Jamaica children living with HIV as well as mental and physical disabilities. Currently, Mustard Seed serves children in Kingston proper as well as the parishes of St. Catherine, St. Andrew, St. Ann, and St. James.
