Today is Windrush Day, when we commemorate the immigration on board of the HMT Empire Windrush. As a child of the generation of Jamaicans that arrived to the UK during that time, let me tell you about how the culture of the island permeates my daily life.
Listen to “I’m That Woman” by Toyin Adekale and friends in commemoration of International Women’s Day 2023.
Exactly one year ago, on December 2nd, 2021, I shared with you all the interview I had with Gospel Raph for the programme “Voice of God” on Radio Cardiff.
‘Inspirational Love Songs’ is the favourite UK reggae album for the RFUK! Congratulations to the producer Gary Dixon and to all the musicians featured.
My instrumental reggae version of “Take Me To The King” has brought me a lot of beautiful moments since it was released. Just this week, it was played in the radio station RockDaBox, the same in which my other song “Just The Way You Are” got the number 1 of the charts just some weeks ago. In general, I am very grateful with the reception of this track in America, and of course with fellow Brummie Millissa Jayne, who gave me a space on her radio show (hosted in Miami, Florida) to promote it for the first time back in 2018.
Last week, DJ Kevin Stew had Gary as a guest on his show. They talked at length about all things music, including the production of our Billy Joel’s ‘Just The Way You Are’ cover with Sandii McCalla and yours truly.
Great news! The reggae version of ‘Just The Way You Are’, sung by Sandii McCalla, with me on Sax and produced by GLR Records Ltd has reached Number 1 on the Stevie J Global Charts. We’re hoping to keep it there at number one for another week, and you can help!
Remember the Christmas Reggae Festival on Reading, last year? It was a lot of fun, and the audience was able to listen to Millicent’s best songs of the genre. Here, a snippet of the night, with Tamela Mann’s “Take Me To The King” in the powerful sax version Millicent launched as a single in 2018.
Check one of the songs Millicent performed at the Christmas Reggae Festival 2019; the lively “She’s Royal” by Jamaican-American singer Tarrus Riley.
