Gregory Isaacs remembered

Stabroek News - Guyana: "Jamaica Gleaner) Yesterday Gregory Anthony Isaacs, who succumbed to lung cancer on October 25 last year, would have been 61. A number of activities have been planned to commemorate the occasion, his widow June told The Gleaner.

One of those was a memorial service at his gravesite at Dovecot, St Catherine, where a headstone was laid.

Clergy from the Ethiopian Orthodox Church presided and master percussionist Bongo Herman paid tribute in a one-hour drumming session.

The official launch of the Gregory Isaacs Foundation took place at the late singer’s home at 15A Sunrise Crescent, St Andrew."
