Florida: International reggae star Gramps Morgan, who is still on a musical high from his recent Soul Train Music Awards nomination has now been confirmed as one of the headline performers at the highly anticipated "Buju Banton & Friends Before The Dawn Concert" taking place in South Florida on Sunday, January 16, 2011, during the Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend. The Before The Dawn Concert will also feature performances by Stephen Marley, Wayne Wonder, Sly & Robbie, Shaggy and Freddie McGregor, with even more names to be announced in the next few weeks.

Banton, who is currently out on bail and awaiting retrial in February, has not performed live in over a year and will make his long-awaited return to the stage at this event.

Kingston, JA: Grammy nominated reggae singer Wayne Wonder, having finally secured his release from VP Records, is ready to soar and is eagerly anticipating a wealth of success starting now and into the New Year.

An affable artiste, known for his quick smile which goes all the way to his eyes, Wayne has been battling challenges which have resulted in his career being put temporarily on pause for close to two years.

“It was quite unfortunate that the dispute with the record company (VP) escalated, but all that is water under the bridge now,” the suave singer explained, sounding very relieved.

“I am ready to work. As a matter of fact, it’s more appropriate to say that the work is continuing and I know that all Wayne Wonder fans are going to love it,” the artiste christened Von Wayne Charles declared with more than a tinge of excitement in his voice.

Already, Wayne has released a few new singles, working with top reggae and dancehall producers and also wearing the producer’s cap himself.
