Following his performance at VP Records' New Artiste showcase at Milk River in Brooklyn, New York last Thursday, singer Spiritual is keen to make 2017 his breakthrough year.The showcase for music industry executives also featured performances by Addis Pablo, Prince Royal and Mark Balet who did songs from their latest projects.

This was Spiritual's first performance in New York. He said the response was more than he anticipated.

“The reception was warm and accepting. The energy from the people made me want to keep the message from Jah flowing,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

Spiritual is managed by veteran impresario Clifton “Specialist” Dillion, whose track record includes gold and platinum albums and songs by Mad Cobra, Shabba Ranks, Patra, and OMI.

Spiritual's performance included the songs T ime Has Come, Ethiopia, Want No More, and Stand Up To Rasta from his debut album Awakening.

“The objective of the showcase was to introduce me as a new artiste so that the world could hear my message through the small congregation. I was very pleased with the achievement because everyone in attendance showed me great and positive love.”

Spiritual's latest single is Stand Up To Rasta, which is produced by Dillion.

Born Horace Chin, Spiritual is from the central Kingston community of Allman Town.

“I was given the name Spiritual from my youth, from the people around me when they saw me as a spiritual leader. I was always preaching the word of Jah in and around the community and the name stuck with me since then,” he said.

A video for Stand Up To Rasta was filmed in New York City.
