Reggae balladeer AJ Brown, who has been a prominent figure in Jamaica's popular music for the past 30 years, will head to Toronto, Canada, on Sunday, May 11, 2014, to headline the Ardenne Alumni Association (Toronto Chapter) Annual Mother's Day Concert & Luncheon.

"The luncheon is our marquee event for the year that provide important funding for the students' welfare programme at Ardenne High School in Jamaica," Mark White, vice- president of the Ardenne Alumni Association, disclosed.

"Over the years, these funds have provided valuable contributions to the Joyce Britton Music Room, Global Leaders Programme for Students, and the Lunch-Feeding Assistance. The event also honours the mothers in our community and provides stellar entertainment," White said.

AJ, who recently took over as lead vocalist of acclaimed reggae group Third World, began his career on the north coast of Jamaica in the '70s. He was then recruited by the Jamaica Tourist Board to promote the island in North America and Europe. His popularity spread, and by the early '80s, he was recognised as Jamaica's leading cabaret singer.

In 1984, he released his debut single, Love People, which was featured on the soundtrack of the movie Club Paradise. His vocals were also featured in The Howling III and The Fourth Protocol. Brown was also a regular performer in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and has released popular songs like We Need To Learn, Beautiful Lady, and Words Of Wisdom.

"AJ is a talented singer who is known for delivering many great performances over the years. We are delighted to have him as a performer this year," White said.
