This year’s staging of the prestigious Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium drew one of the biggest crowds the event has seen to date.

Apart from the powerhouse performance from Canadian soul legend Celine Dion, one of the highlight of the show was a special honor given to Jamaican music veterans Richie Stephens, Shaggy, Yellow Man, Marcia Griffiths, Lloyd Parks and Derrick Morgan.

Richie Stephens was honoured for his nearly two decades of contribution to Jamaican music, while Shaggy was given the award for promoting Jamaica’s culture internationally.
