NEW venue but same high-intensity sets. That's what organisers of A St Mary Mi Come From are planning for this evening's staging. The charity show is slated for the National Arena in St Andrew.

The line-up includes Popcaan, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Cocoa Tea, Luciano, Mad Cobra, Agent Sasco, Ky-Mani Marley, Barrington Levy, Tarrus Riley, Louis Culture, and I Wayne.

Torrential rain forced last year's show at Gray's Inn Sports Complex in Annotto Bay to be abandoned. Capleton is taking no chances this time around.

“Last year, we had an awesome package featuring the best in reggae and dancehall, but rain intervened and the event had to be aborted. As expected, as promoters we incurred losses, but the biggest regret for us was not being able to honour our pledges to the charities for which the event was intended,” Capleton said.

The artiste, who is the 2016 recipient of the Social Development Commission's Entertainment Award of Excellence for outstanding contribution in community development, hopes corporate companies will support his annual venture which assists hospitals, infirmaries and schools.

“It's really such a joy to support schools, hospitals and youths clubs. We have seen over the years the extent to which the proceeds of this event have enriched the lives of others, and it is a project that my entire team is totally committed to. Claudette Kemp is the driver and she works assiduously every year to make A St Mary Mi Come From a reality,” said Capleton.

A St Mary Mi Come From was first held in 2000 at Clements Park as a 'giving back' event by Capleton to his parish. His alma mater, Islington High School, the Port Maria Hospital, Annotto Bay Hospital, Oberlin High School and Haile Selassie High School are some of the institutions that have benefited from the show.
