Unsung Reggae Soul Sister

In commemoration of Jamaica's 50th anniversary of independence from Britain, the Jamaica Observer's Entertainment section recognises 50 persons who made significant, yet unheralded, contributions to the country's culture. Today we feature Gwen Guthrie. In the summer of 1986, singer Gwen Guthrie hit pay dirt with Ain't Nothin' Goin' on but the Rent, a song that became the working woman's anthem and a jab to the face of every deadbeat man. Ain't Nothing Goin' on but the Rent was also a smash in Jamaica where Guthrie's songs were popular for years, though many did not know it. Jamaicans danced in the 1970s to the ballads This Time It'll be Sweeter (Linda Lewis) and God Don't Like Ugly by Roberta Flack, which were written by the New Jersey-reared Guthrie.

Happy Independence 2012 Jamaica

For more than 170 years The Gleaner has stood with, by and for Jamaica - celebrating its triumphs, recording its agonies, and highlighting its aspirations. We are best known for encouraging and facilitating national conversations, challenging powerful interests, and shining spotlights on inadequacies in governance and of government. We have helped the society to hold its servants responsible and accountable.  For the last half-century we have proudly pursued this unwritten compact with Jamaica in its status as an independent country, the preparation for which The Gleaner not only mirrored, but in some respects, was intimately associated.  For decades before the event, we reported on the personalities and issues that precipitated independence and our then editor, the late Theodore Sealy, chaired the committee that planned the national celebrations for Independence on August 6, 1962.
