Jah Cure Is Reggae Sumfest 2013 Final Act

Summerfest Productions, promoters of Reggae Sumfest, has confirmed Siccature Alcock - popularly known as Jah Cure, as the grand finale act on International Night 1, Friday, July 26.

Executive producer of Reggae Sumfest, Johnny Gourzong, said choosing Jah Cure as a closing act was a no-brainer. "Jah Cure has the right flavour, expertise, stage performance and a crowd-stopping voice to grace the stage as the final act," he said.

Not at all daunted by the task of being the closing act, Jah Cure is preparing for what might turn out be his best performance yet. He will be following acts such as American hip-hop star Flo Rida, veterans Beres Hammond and Barrington Levy, reggae superstar Tarrus Riley, and relative newcomers Iba Mahr, Droop Lion, urban jazz singer Kiara Dubwah, and Nature.

The soulful Jah Cure, who is widely recognised for hit songs such as Call On Me, Unconditional Love, That Girl and Longing For, last performed on the Sumfest main stage in 2011. Hailing from western Jamaica, he has a large following of fans eagerly awaiting his performance next Friday at Catherine Hall in the Second City.

Youtube hit

Unconditional Love, featuring Phyllisia, recently passed the impressive threshold of over five million hits on YouTube.

According to the singer, he is honoured to wind up International Night 1 for such an acclaimed reggae festival and has big plans in store for his fans. "I am closing the Friday night and that is a chance for me to cement my status as one of the leaders of reggae in the 21st century. I am coming to work for the patrons at Sumfest and I have a wonderful set lined up," he said.

Another show-stopper added to the festival on Dancehall Night is I-Wayne, a consummate performer who is a rare treat who will add a touch of fire to the explosive performances on Thursday, July 25. Being very familiar with the Reggae Sumfest platform, the singer is eagerly anticipating he will add a touch of culture to Dancehall Night, with his hits such as Living in Love and Can't Satisfy Her.

Line-up

Reggae Sumfest toasts to a successful 21 years from July 21-27, 2013. A few of the heavyweights performing on the festival this year are Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Miguel, reggae artistes Damian 'Junior Gong' Marley, Beres Hammond, Barrington Levy, Romain Virgo, Chronixx and Life Seeds singer I-Wayne, who has been added to the Dancehall Night line-up.

The 2013 staging of Reggae Sumfest is sponsored by Digicel, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Jamaica Tourist Board, The Gleaner Company Ltd, Secrets Resorts, Red Stripe, Pepsi, Ting, Grand Palladium, Half Moon, Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort, Sunset Beach Resort, RIU, and Sandals Resorts International.
