OLDIES SUNDAY: Jessie Ripoll Children’s Choir – Hands Across Jamaica (1995)


Happy Sunday, and it’s a new month! May is recognized as Child’s Month, and on Oldies Sunday we celebrate the youth. For today’s selection, we go back a couple decades for a song that has touched many, and was presented by the youth. Today we look back at the Jessie Ripoll Children’s Choir’sLet’s Join Hands Across Jamaica For Righteousness“.

Released in 1995 as through the “Hands Across Jamaica For RighteousnessOrganization which was founded by Motivational Speaker, Yvonne Coke, “Hands Across Jamaica” was the theme song for the Organization which sought to achieve “Motto, Anthem and Pledge (MAP) until every Jamaican is made fully conscious of the potential of their godly inheritance of beauty, fellowship and prosperity, and move to fulfill Jamaica’s mandate to advance the welfare of the whole human race.” The song was performed by members of the Jessie Ripoll School’s Children’s Choir, and was a staple in the media for years. The song was also given a music video treatment which was produced by the Creative Production & Training Centre (CPTC). This selection may bring back a lot of memories for some, including former members of the Children’s Choir. Let the kids inspire you to do some good today.

.@DamianMarley Shares The History Of Virginia Key Beach In “Life Is A Circle” Video


Reggae Music has always been something that entertains, but it also seeks to educate fans as well. Known for dropping lyrical selections but also delivering knowledge and conscious music, DamianJunior GongMarley continues to do just that. Today, we check out the video for the single, “Life Is A Circle“.

Directed by B+ and shot in Miami, Florida, Junior Gong not only gives us a performance of his single, but schools us on the history of the Virginia Key Beach (the video’s true location) which was Miami’s first “Colored Only” Beach which welcomed Black people and other marginalized communities. We learned that the Beach was possible due to many protests, and over the years faced closures until it was considered an ecological treasure and re-opened for good in 2008. Always something of high quality when it comes to Junior Gong, a living legend.
