about

Rightup New York, New York

I started my music career at age 10 in the church, traveling throughout the island of Jamaica up until the age of 15 when I migrated to the United States.

I have what it takes to work any stage, I bring real music to diverse audiences with a unique flavor.

God is my inspiration. I put Him first, then music, then people.

One love.

Track Name: The Blood Prevail
Have thine own way
The Blood prevail, the Blood, Blood of the risen Lamb
He got power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days
Lord, thou has been our dwelling place in all generations
Before the mountains were brought fourth
Or even though hath formed the earth, and the world
Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God
He got power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days
The Blood prevail, the Blood, Blood of the risen Lamb
Thou turnest man to destruction and says, return, ye children of men
For a thousand years in thy sight are as just yesterday when it has passed
And as a watchman in the night, in the morning it flourisheth and growth up
In the evening, it is cut down and withereth
He got power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days
The Blood prevail, the Blood, Blood of the risen Lamb
He has power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days
He got power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days
Thou turnest man to destruction and says, return, ye children of men
For a thousand years in thy sight are as but yesterday when it has passed
And as a watchman in the night, in the morning it flourisheth and growth up
In the evening, it is cut down and withereth
So live good, love life, love God, for He is all we have
He got power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days
The Blood prevail, the Blood, Blood of the risen Lamb
He got power, power to save, just as, just as in olden days

Track Name: Yesterday's Troubles
Yesterday’s troubles are out of my mind
Wipe out of existence, no more to recall
By Jah’s own hands
And new things are entering
I’m viewing a future to be fine
And I am in the peace of mind
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
He’s the King over us all
Tomorrow’s future my heart may fear
But off to see another day
So as I lay me down to sleep
I pray my soul the Lord will keep
Hope to see the sun rise again
And it will be a better day
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
He’s the King over us all
So as the sun set there is reason to say
Thank you Jah for being there
I feel the wind blows from the trees
See the sun rise in the east
Yes I see another day
And I hope and I pray it’s a greater day
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
He’s the King over us all
Tomorrow’s future my heart may fear
But hope to see another day
So as I lay me down to sleep
I pray my soul the Lord will keep
Hope to see the sun rise again
And it will be a better day
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
He’s the King over us all
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
He’s the King over us all
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
He’s the King over us all
All in all and one for all
Jah is King and He rules us all
He’s my inspiration
Track Name: Jah Is My Master
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the council of the ungodly
Nor standeth in the ways of sinners
Nor siteth in the seat of the scornful
Jah is my Master, Him I give praise
Son of King David, I must be brave
Like a lion on his throne, there I sit alone
This world with war and violence, I can’t condone
No way, no how
The righteous path is the longest and hardest road
That what the good Book has told
And those who wait upon the Master
He will renew their strength
Oh Jah works could never end
No way, could never end
Do you believe in the secret of the morning?
Won’t tell no lies, I’ve seen brighter days
Do you believe in the mysteries of the evening?
Won’t tell no lies, I’ve seen better days
Why should I question His destiny?
In front of men who don’t know their history
In this world where togetherness is the past
How much longer could we last?
Do you believe in the secret of the morning?
Won’t tell no lies, I’ve seen brighter days
Do you believe in the mystery of the evening?
Won’t tell no lies, I’ve seen better days
For His delight is in the law of the law
And in his law do I mediate day and night
For I shall be like that tree by the rivers of water
Track Name: Our Father
