The wait is finally over!!! It's been over two years!
According to the CEO of Groovin Inc, Christopher Roberts proclaims that Beenie Man will be able to perform in New York City next month. Christopher Roberts states,
"I am extremely excited to announce that our booking agent here in New York was able to secure a work permit for dancehall king Beenie Man to be a headline performer at this years "Groovin In The Park" concert on July 1st. Music fans in the tristate area have been waiting for a very long time for the opportunity to see Beenie Man perform live here in the USA again. I am glad we were instrumental in making it happen for the fans."These past few weeks Beenie Man has been the topic of discussion because of his decision to broadcast his plead for forgiveness from the gay community. Right after the release of the video, here we are today commending him for getting a US work permit! Could there be a connection??
His very first performance in the United States will be at the annual "Groovin In The Park" happening July 1st at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY. This show will feature Boyz II Men, Beres Hammond, and Jimmy Cliff with more acts to be added within the next few weeks.
