Beres Hammond and J Boog have just been added to this once-in-a-lifetime line-up!
“Beres Hammond is one the greatest performers of our time. He is a global superstar and the perfect addition to our epic line-up.
With Beres joining Caribbean Love Now JAMATHON, we are adding even more power and purpose to what is going to be the most important event for Jamaican music in decades,” said Joe Bogdanovich founder of Caribbean Love Now.

We appreciate her contribution in helping to make this happen,” Mr Bogdanovich said.
This benefit concert, was organized to raise funds for hurricane recovery in the Caribbean. The artists are generously donating their time and talent to help the cause.
