Miramar declares Sanchez Day


As 2014 continues to be an exciting and prosperous year for international reggae singer Sanchez, promoters of Unifest took time out to honour and recognise him for his contribution to reggae music and career accomplishments.

On Saturday, May 17, commissioner Alexandra Davis, on behalf of Mayor Lori Mosley and fellow commissioners of the city of Miramar, Florida, presented Sanchez, born Kevin Jackson, with a proclamation, stating that day be officially known as 'Sanchez Day' in the City of Miramar.

Unifest, promoted by the GCACC (Greater American Cultural Coalition) focuses on bringing various Caribbean countries and islands together to highlight their rich cultural heritage. Unifest is a multicultural festival celebrating 20 years of bringing cultures together.

With his contribution to music and the reggae industry for the last two decades, Sanchez has been embraced by a wide array of cultures, and placed the Caribbean culture, to the forefront in many ways.

Moved beyond words, to tears, Sanchez received this proclamation in front of thousands of screaming fans.

"As an artiste, I perform and sing because I love it. I don't sing with the expectation that I must get an award for this, I do it for the love of my fans, music and the mercy of the Almighty. I must say, to receive such a high recognition, from a city I love and embrace as another home, I say, thank you. To the commissioner and Mayor Daisley, Unifest members, I thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, and to God be the glory," said Sanchez.

To top off the weekend, Sanchez gave fans a remarkable performance.
