Statement by Gregory Isaacs Foundation UK/EU Ltd.

The beginning of this Year 2020 we started to celebrate Gregory Isaacs‘ 70th Birthday. All was well we set up a 1 Year Celebration with different Projects, Events and Festivals globally. To cancel all, was not an easy road, as some projects, such as “Essen’s Original Jamaican Jerk Fest 2020”, took us already 1 year preparation. We know: to make plans is good, but sometimes we get evil setbacks Covid19 (Corona Virus) entered the World…almost at the speed of light and all best plans came out as smoke and only echo, and the World got shocked and stood still for some month, and an end of this situation is not in sight. But guess what Covid19: You force us on our knees, but you do not prevent us from getting up! We say it with Music which you can’t stop! All over the World we see #Covid19 Workers, not only in Hospitals also in our daily life’s, to keep us as humans alive. They are risking every day and night their own life for all of us.

On behalf of the late Gregory Isaacs we know, it is a supportive Signal to the global world and especially to this mentioned workers, to show our respect and support in form of a UNITY VIDEO on “Night Nurse” Riddim by Flabba Holt.
