Tarrus Riley, Estelle, and Johnny Osbourne Star At American Friends of Jamaica Benefit

Patricia Chin, the co-founder of V.P. Records, will be honored for achievements on behalf of Jamaican music and culture at this year’s Hummingbird Gala. Along with her late husband Vincent, Miss Pat established the music industry powerhouse that remains Miles Ahead in Reggae Music. The annual AFOJ event, held this year at NYC’s prestigious Plaza Hotel on October 26, raises funds for progressive social causes in Jamaica. Last year’s fundraiser featuring Busy Signal raised US$350,000. In addition to honoring Miss Pat, this year’s event will celebrate the evolution of Jamaica music, kicking off with Studio One legend Johnny Osbourne, continuing with Tarrus Riley, fresh off a triumphant trip to Kenya, and Grammy-nominated R&B star Estelle, whose latest album Lovers Rock explores her UK reggae roots.
