Caribbean songbird Deanna delivered a strong performance showcasing her music at Triple Century recently.

Born and raised in Anguilla, the artiste hopes cementing her work in Jamaica will catapult her career to another level.

Promoting a new reggae single, Ghost Love, Deanna is looking to expand her fan base and learn from reggae greats.

Ghost Love was produced by iconic Jamaican producer Colin 'Bulby' York.

York has worked with a slew of notable acts including Shabba Ranks, Jimmy Cliff , Sly and Robbie, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Chaka Khan Madonna and UB40.

Ghost Love also features work from writers Candy Gloster, Mark Cyrus and Rob Wells.

Speaking highly of Jamaica, Deanna told THE WEEKEND STAR: "Jamaica is pure vibes. It was everything that I imagined it would be. From the view up in the aircraft, I could tell I was going to make great memories.

The most important thing on my bucket list was to visit the hometown of reggae legend Bob Marley. Trench Town was so welcoming I spent an hour there and sang some of Bob Marley's hits with a band in the cultural yard where they said Bob Marley lived.

"I also visited the Bob Marley Museum and took pictures with Bob's chef, Georgie. Georgie was welcoming such a beautiful soul. This tour brought me to tears".

The accompanying music video for Ghost Love can be viewed on YouTube. The artiste has also released songs such as West End Mistakes, Tamed Jungle and Flaws of Attraction.

"Jamaica is precious. I will definitely come back to visit and perform again. The patrons at Triple Century loved my performance. I thank them for an encore. It is good to know they appreciate my talent," Deanna said.
