2016 marked the 59th birthday of reggae icon Dennis Brown and vocalist Marsha Ambrosius is just one of the artist that will pay tribute to the iconic performer on the new cover album, We Remember Dennis Brown.
She talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about her rendition of Brown’s “Have You Ever” and getting back on stage with Floetry.
On touring with Floetry:
“It was the most amazing yet grueling show ever in my career. It was a show every single day, no days off. There was no room for error.”
Paying tribute to Dennis Brown:
“Reggae was second nature to any kid. Reggae was just an influence in the UK. I had the glorious joy of listening to Dennis Brown back in the day, but for me, it reminds me of home and good cooked food.”
