PAPA SAN DROPS “ONE BLOOD”
STELLAR ® AWARD WINNER SET TO RELEASE 6TH GOSPEL ALBUM THIS WEEKEND IN JAMAICA AHEAD OF 2014 WORLD LAUNCH.
Ever since his days on the secular stage, Tyrone “Papa San” Thompson has had a heart for music and the less fortunate. On Saturday he teams up with local charity The Rescue Package Foundation to twin two loves – philanthropy and music as headliner for Liberation 2013: The “One Blood” Album Launch at the Jamaica College Auditorium, Kingston.
Collab Filled Frenzy
With anticipation for the project growing globally, Jamaicans will be the first to sample the collab-only disc. Featuring tracks from gospel heavy hitters Israel Houghton, Da T.R.U.T.H Fred Hammond and Grammy award winning rapper Lecrae, he also hits notes with fellow Jamaicans Stitchie and DJ Nicholas. The 13 track project showcases Papa San’s versatility like never before. With his unforgettable hooks and mile-a-minute raps the music offered is fresh, inspiring and sure to please even his very picky Jamaicans.
5th Times the Charm
It’s not uncommon for Rev. Papa San to put his homeland first. Since migration he’s blazed the trail for gospel, becoming the first Caribbean gospel artiste to hit the Billboard charts and consequently the first to win a stellar award (gospel’s version of the Grammy). Now going by the name Papa Son (his new moniker from his 2011 album “My Story”), he’s had success in his pastoral ministry as Senior Pastor for Our Father’s Kingdom Ministries in Florida. However timing and schedules kept him from Liberation.
“For years we’ve wanted Papa San to be part of Liberation but due his very hectic schedule we waited. After learning more about our aim and our projects he decided to partner with us to help us meet our targets. Nothing happens before its time and the fifth staging of Liberation will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced”, says Dania-Kaye Kirkland, Marketing and Public Relations Officer for The Rescue Package Foundation.
The 5th staging also features other gospel acts Kevin Downswell, Ryan Mark, Omari, Dunamis, Goddy Goddy & Denise Wright all backed by On The Shout Band. The event begins at 6:00 p.m., this Saturday November 2 at the Jamaica College Auditorium, 189 Old Hope Road, Kingston. All proceeds will go to the DuPoint Primary School Book Project and other charity projects.
