Beres Hammond celebrates his 59th birthday on Thursday August 28, 2014.
The king of lovers rock was born in Annotto Bay, Jamaica in 1955. His career as a reggae singer began in the 1970s. But it was not until the 1990s that Hammond saw huge global success.
Last year Beres Hammond was honored with the Order Of Jamaica for his “exceptional and dedicated contribution to the Jamaican music industry.”
The Order of Jamaica is Jamaica’s fifth highest honor.
Happy birthday Beres Hammond.
