Win Tickets To See Barrington Perform Tomorrow
Actions speak louder than words, and when it comes to teaching the youths, Barrington Levy is a man of action. His 80s dancehall classic on Witty’s digital lick of the “Mr Bassie” riddim expressed Barrington’s hearfelt desire to see music “teach the youths them how to live, teach the youths them how to survive.” At the same time Mr. Levy’s song was a rebuke of artists who choose to use the gift of music to spread slack irrelevant teachings: “No put it deh no put them no weh / No bend down just keep them to the ground,” he sang with righteous indignation. “Can’t you see the time we’re living in, the people are suffering?” This Thursday June 6th Barrington Levy will continue his mission to teach the youths by performing live to benefit the Rockhouse Foundation. The foundation transforms the places where Jamaica’s children learn and supports the people who teach them. 2013 marks the Rockhouse Foundation’s ten-year anniversary. To date, the Foundation has entirely transformed and modernized four schools – Negril All Age School, Negril Basic School, Little Bay All Age and the Bunch of Stars E.C.I. – along with a complete renovation and expansion of the Negril Community Library. All projects combined, the Rockhouse Foundation directly impacts the lives of thousands of young people and their families. You can win free tickets to the show (and why not use the money you save to make a donation?).
