A report stated that two years ago when Elmore’s Art of Music Productions organization began its efforts to entice the musical icon to the festival, they had no idea how they could pull it off.
Inking the deal, Elmore said, took some “jumping through hoops” but now that all systems are set for Dion’s first performance in the Caribbean, he is understandably very excited. Dion, a Canadian, is one of the best selling female recording artistes of all time and she is also excited about the opportunity to perform for her fans in the Caribbean.
She emailed Elmore to say she is looking forward to doing her very first show in the Caribbean and this is an honor for her to perform at the 2012 Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival. Dion is scheduled to perform on the Friday night of the festival, which runs from January 26 to 28, 2012, and is expected to woo her fans with a number of her classics.
Joining her on the lineup are Cee-Lo Green, Nicole Henry, Heads of State, Jully Black, Earl Klugh, The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards, Destra, Gentleman; among several of Jamaica’s top acts
