Emancipation Park weekly Concert

Prodigal Son - File

The weekly Wednesday concert series continues tonight at Emancipation Park with a host of artistes including Prodigal Son, Ryan Mark, Kevin Downswell, Judy Mowatt, Sista Pat, Claudius England and Stitchie.

A first-time performer at a Reggae Month event, Prodigal stated that he was elated to be a part of the historic festivities.

Under the theme Reggae Praise, Prodigal Son told THE STAR that fans can look forward to an excellent performance with fan favorites, as well as new material.

"I don't know how much they (the crowd) will receive me, it's always a nervous moment, but I will leave it all on the stage," he said.

Currently working on a new album which is scheduled for a summer release, Prodigal Son has already been creating waves with the release of his reggae singles Mi Know Jah and Tears I Cry.

"The singles have been getting a lot of attention locally and internationally, especially in Europe. The response has been very positive. I think people have the wrong idea of me doing reggae music. When I made the announcement last year, some persons misinterpreted it as me saying that I was going to stop doing gospel. I'm not going to stop doing gospel, I'm only offering social commentary on current topics," he told THE STAR.

Questioned about what advice he would give to other gospel artistes who want to do reggae music but are afraid of the backlash, Prodigal Son simply stated, "Be yourself and you'll be comfortable, despite what people say. It's your conviction."
