Essence Festival also likes to give its thousands of attendees some of their favorites amor years gone by such as Kelly Price, SWV, Backstreet, Queen Latifah and Xscape.
Serani, who will be performing with his band, is delighted to be booked for the event.
“When my manager Julian called me and told me I was ecstatic,” he said. “To be picked to perform alongside these superstars is an honour and validates all the handwork I have done and continue to put in. Sometimes you don’t always get the love at home in Jamaica if you’re not seen as one of the hype or hot-at-the-moment artists, so its reassuring to know there are people out there who appreciate your talent. Performing is an aspect of my career that I really pay attention to and take pride in so Essence Festival can look forward to some proper Jamaican energy when I touch the stage.”
Serani released his latest self-produced single ‘I Will Be There” last Friday. Prior to performing at Essence Serani is slated to perform in Canada this weekend before appearing in Tampa, Atlanta and Orlando, with shows in Haiti and Colombia scheduled later on in July.
