Soul Train Awards 'Best Reggae Artist' nominee Mr. Vegas has been added to the first annual Soulfusion, the official Soul Train Awards pre-show concert, slated for Tuesday, November 9th at the Atlanta Civic Center in Georgia.
The Reggae superstar will share the stage with soulstress Erykah Badu, Hip Hop giant Rick Ross, R&B siren Chrisette Michelle, and Hip Hop icons Doug E Fresh, Slick Rick, and Arrested Development for a funky blend of rhythm and culture that will kick-off this year's Soul Train Awards. The awards ceremony will be held at Atlanta's Cobb Energy Center on Wednesday, November 10th, and broadcast on both CENTRIC and BET on November 28th
Reggae sensation Christopher Martin will shoot the video for his current hit Come Where You Going. The song was produced earlier this summer at Big Yard Studios in Kingston by new dancehall riddim duo Richard 'Mosiah' Pearson and Hanif 'Rizzla' Chito of Mosiah Musik.
Pearson says he is happy with the reception and wants to use the video to give the song added traction: "I love the cross-over vibe that the song has and with Chris it was a perfect combination. We expected the song to do well, but we never expected people to catch on to it so quickly. The video will be very colourful but nothing too elaborate, just something that will keep the fans interested. If you look at some of the recent videos on MTV and BET right now you will notice that they are very simple but colourful and eye catching, that's the image we are looking for."
