A few days after receiving the good news that she was crowned ‘Best Female Lovers Rock Singer 2015’ at the annual Lady Flava Network Awards in Hartford, Connecticut for the second consecutive year, reggae songbird Sophia Brown now has her sights set on delivering a winning performance at Sting 2015, the Greatest One Night Dancehall/Reggae Show on earth. The event takes place on Boxing Day, December 26 at the Jamworld Entertainment Complex in Portmore, Jamaica.
The award winning singer, who is expected to charm fans with popular hits like ‘Gimme That Good Love,’ ‘Catch Me If You Can’ and Betty Wright’s ‘Tonight is The Night’ is hoping to build on the positive strides she has made so far for 2015.
“This will be my second time gracing the stage at Sting and I am hyped and ready to bring it to fans, gift wrapped and all,” she gushed.
While the full Sting 2015 lineup has not yet been unveiled, event organizers said the Boxing night event will bring back the dancehall rulers of the 1980s including veteran DJs Josie Wales, Charlie Chaplain and Brigadier Jerry who are booked to deliver a three the hard way performance.
Considered one of the hardest working female performers in the industry, the sultry Brown is hoping to end the year in a blaze of glory. She started 2015 with a scintillating performance at Rebel Salute in Richmond, St Ann in January. She then delivered a first class performance in New York at the sixth annual Linkage Awards, where we she won an ‘Outstanding Achievement In Music Award’. She headlined Sophia Brown In Concert at the West Indian Social Club in Hartford, Connecticut and held fans in a musical trance at the Taste of The Caribbean and Jerk Festival in Hartford, Connecticut, where she shared stage with reggae singer Luciano. She also performs at the 15th annual Springfield Carnival at Blunt Park in Massachusetts, and graced the stage at the 29th annual Caribbean Festival at Great Plaza, Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia.
Among her recent hit songs are a combination single titled “We’re Lovers” and ‘Wide Awake,’ a lovers rock ballad about falling in love that charted in the US. She also enjoyed success with the sizzling R&B flavored single ‘Rain Over Me’ that charted on the New Style Radio, 98.7 FM chart in Birmingham, England and the Star Top Ten chart in New York.
“I have enjoyed tremendous success in the past few years and must give thanks to my management team and my fans for all the positive vibes. I am doing what I love to do which is to record and perform music and it hardly ever feels like work” she said.
Brown is currently in studios recording tracks for a soon to be released album. She heads to Europe soon for a tour which is being organised by her booking agent, Dream Team Entertainment.
