Explosive Performance during Groovinâ€™ in the Park concert last week at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY
Online PR News – 12-July-2012 – New York, NY – Monami Entertainment is proud to welcome legendary reggae superstar Beenie Man to itsâ€™ talent roster. This exciting announcement comes after a successful re-introduction to the states last week during Groovinâ€™ in the Park concert at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY. This was Beenie Manâ€™s first performance on US soil in over three years.
Moses A. Davis, better know by his stage moniker Beenie Man, is a Grammy Award winning Jamaican reggae artist whose recording career dates back to 1981. By 1994, he had become a force to be reckoned with in the music scene and since then has had a string of international hit singles and is praised across the world as the reigning â€śKing of the Dancehallâ€ť. Still today, much of Beenie Manâ€™s story remains untold. Beenie Man recently received his United States work visa after being unable to perform in the country for the last three years. In a statement released upon receiving the great news, Beenie Man expressed his gratitude to the United States government & the U.S Embassy in Jamaica for what he says is their â€śrenewed faith in himâ€ť. Beenie also expressed his commitment to self-awareness, equal rights and family values as core factors when creating his music.
Says Mona Scott-Young, Founder/ CEO of Monami Entertainment: â€śWeâ€™re excited about the direction of Monami Entertainment. In an industry where things are changing quickly, itâ€™s important that we re-invent ourselves by taking risks, pushing limits, and finding new creative ways of doing business. Every client on the Monami roster has their own unique sense of artistry that sets them apart in the marketplace, and just as important is their dedication to their craft and to themselves. I am excited about this new partnership with an international phenomenon such as Beenie Man. He is a staple in the Caribbean community and along with our Jamaican sub-division â€śMovers & Shakersâ€ť and American Talent Agency, Monami looks forward to re-introducing him to the US market and continuing his work abroadâ€ť.
