BERES HAMMOND tops Jamaica’s honours list

The Jamaican government has awarded BERES HAMMOND the Order of Jamaica for his exceptional and dedicated contribution to the Jamaican music industry.

The government announced its annual National Honours and Awards earlier this week.

As reported in the Jamaica Observer, governor general Sir Patrick Allen will hand out the country’s fourth highest honour on 21 October at King's House.

The St Mary-born singer has been recording since the early 1970s and first came to prominence as lead singer for the ZAP POW band and as a solo balladeer with producer WILLIE LINDO.

However it was not until the 1980s when he embraced the emerging dancehall sound that he broke through in a big way with hit songs for producers such as DONOVAN GERMAIN.

Reggae legends DELROY WILSON and DENNIS BROWN have also been posthumously awarded the Order of Distinction. 

The honours list also includes musician FILBERTO 'FIL' CALLENDER and dancehall deejay Richard Bennett, better known as CHARLIE CHAPLIN.
