(JAMAICA OBSERVER) — Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, has expressed sadness at the death of the Reggae singer Joel ‘Bunny’ Brown who passed away Monday.
Over the span of his career, which began in 1968, Brown was a member of several groups including The Wildcats, Mighty Mystics, Dynamic Vision, The Falcons and Chosen Few — with whom he recorded the hit ‘Queen Majesty’.
He also backed Luther Vandross, The Blow and Lisa Fisher.
“It is with a heavy heart that I learnt of Bunny Brown’s passing. He was an ambassador for our music for 50 years. At this time when we celebrate Reggae Month and the pioneers of our music, we must remember and honour Bunny Brown’s contribution,” Grange said in a release from her ministry.
“I convey deepest condolences to his family and friends.”
