Rondell Positive - A Powerful Performer
Kingston, Jamaica December 3, 2012: Jamaican based US- founded charity Coalition for Jamaica has joined forces with Reggae Worship Artiste Rondell Positive to bring an upbeat message and gifts to several children homes this Christmas.
Through its global tradition Toys for Tots, which hands out toys to less fortunate children, Coalition for Jamaica aims to encourage economic and social growth of students in Jamaica and Philadelphia by donating cash and kind. Between December 14 and 16 this year the group will deliver hundreds of toys to Children’s Homes such as Maxfield Park, City of Refuge, Glen Hope Nursery, Walker's Place of Safety, Missionaries of Poor, Mustard Seed Communities and others.
Rondell says he feels blessed to be part of this venture. “It is a blessing to be sharing with these kids. I remember when I was growing up, boxer Richard ‘Shrimpy’ Clarke did a treat at a boy’s home where my father worked, and I remember vividly the faces of the boys whenever they were treated. When the president approached me to be part of the project I knew I had to do it."
Rondell, a father of two is known for his family-centric approach and has had music of a similar format. His affiliation with children’s affairs includes the 2006 release of his song “Leave our children”, which addressed the senseless killing of women and children in Jamaica, calling on criminals to cease the murders. The track, potent and timely was used to spearhead the launch of the National Children rescue programme “The Ananda Alert”.
Rondell, who will wrap the year with a set of electric performances – such as Jermaine Edwards & Friends on December 22 has caught the attention of key industry players, with his 2012 debut album "Sticks Nor Stones: Reggae Worship" getting heavy radio play.
