Reggae Icons Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt honored in NYC

International Reggae Queen Marcia Griffiths and legendary reggae/gospel singer Judy Mowatt, two thirds of the world famous I-Threes group, who provided backing vocals for reggae superstar Bob Marley in the 70's, were honored with the "Reggae Ambassador's Award" in New York by VP Records and Groovin Inc., sponsor and organizer of the fourth annual Groovin In The Park concert respectively.

The awards were presented to the ladies for their supreme artistry, outstanding achievement and contribution to the development and promotion of reggae worldwide.

Tour manager and reggae historian Copeland Forbes was also honored for his contribution to the industry. The awards were presented at the New York launch of Groovin In The Park 2014.

Griffiths, who made the trek from Kingston to attend the presentation, used the opportunity to thank Miss Pat, co-founder of VP Records and event founder Christopher Roberts for considering her for the special award.

"I feel like I am truly blessed as this award is deeper than music. Thank you for allowing me to share this journey. Without you I would not have reached this milestone" she said to thunderous applause.

Judy, who performed with Marley in 1979 at his last concert at Madison Square Garden told the packed house, "Had it not been for God, for his gift and talents that he gave to me, I would not have been here this evening. So it is with heartfelt gratitude, I give thanks."

Griffiths and Mowatt, who collectively have contributed almost 100 years to the development and globalization of reggae music, will join a sizzling musical cast that blends vintage and contemporary hitmakers, at the 2014 Groovin In The Park in Queens on Sunday, June 29th.

Chronixx, John Holt and Bob Andy are among the other confirmed acts scheduled to perform. The one-day festival will also showcase other exciting elements of the island's culture too, such as the mouthwatering cuisine and the exciting island fashion.

Sponsors supporting the celebration this year include Grace Kennedy, TD Bank, SQPA, Nutrament, Western Union, MoneyGram, The Smoke House, The Door Restaurant, Bullzii, Groovin Radio and VP Records.
