It's been a tough year for emerging reggae artiste Queen Kamarla. Her mother died and she struggled with her son's treatment for pancreatitis in the US, but she is still intent on giving back to her community.

She will be hosting Trench Town Unity Fest, a children's treat, football competition and concert for the residents of Trench Town on December 16. Artistes including Natty King, Hawkeye and Alozade will be performing at the event.

“Thank God my son is doing so much better now, so I am able to focus my energy and resources towards this treat for the people of Trench Town. This year is going to be bigger than ever, we have a ferris wheel, a bounce about for the kids, and more artistes than ever for the concert,” said Queen Kamarla.

She is getting a lot of support from overseas based artistes who will be flying in for the event.

“I want to big up Maximus, who is a sponsor and performer, and Jah Kettle From Canada who is funding his own ticket to support the show. Gucci Boss, DJ thunder from Brooklyn, DJ Roy from Irie Jam, Daddy Reds from Scotch Bonnet radio who are flying in for the event. I also want to thank Mother Kingston, Sean Kingston's mother, gave me a donation towards the treat,” she said.

The event will be hosted by DJ Elise Kelly of IRIE FM, Stella, and Senator C. Music will be provided by Schoolboy Movements.

Earlier this year, Queen Kamarla, who is known for the single Wah Gwaan, won an online contest bidding for a spot on RastaFest in November.

“The performance was great and it opened up other opportunities for me this opportunity showed the power of social media and tapping into a global connection of promoters, selectors and music labels,” she said.

Queen Kamarla will be performing on UK Sting in England on January 1, 2018.
