MARCIA Griffiths and Judy Mowatt, members of Bob Marley's harmony group the I-Three, were honoured with the Reggae Ambassador's Award in New York City last Tuesday.

The awards were presented at the Jamaica Consulate by VP Records and Groovin' Inc, co-promoters of the annual Groovin' In The Park concert.

Griffiths and Mowatt were recognised for their "supreme artistry, outstanding achievement and contribution to the development and promotion of reggae worldwide".

Veteran tour manager/booking agent, Copeland Forbes, was also honoured for his contribution to the music industry.

Griffiths thanked VP founder Pat Chin and Groovin' In The Park founder Christopher Roberts for the 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.

Mowatt, a born-again Christian, was also appreciative.

"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 will perform at the fourth Groovin' In The Park, scheduled for June 29 in Queens, New York. Chronixx, John Holt and Bob Andy are also headliners.
