Spread the love

The Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music (CPR) will host their annual Year End Appreciation and Kwanzaa celebration on Tuesday, December 27th at Lounge, 310 Bowery between Bleecker and Houston Streets from 7pm to Midnight. Each year in the spirit of Kwanzaa the organization encourages everyone to share the fruit of their harvest by making a donation of educational supplies (pens,pencils, crayons, notebooks, markers, etc.) to be given to basic school children in Jamaica. This year is no different. 
The CPR Kwanzaa celebrates the second principle of the Nguzo Saba, Kujichagulia which means Self Determination. 2011 was a self defining year for CPR as the organization grew exponentially launching it’s own internet broadcasting platform, CPRLive. CPR also enjoyed extensive media coverage in 2011. In celebration of the spirit of Kujichagulia and in appreciation for their service, CPR will recognize seven members of the community with the 1st Annual CPR Service Awards for their dedication to the organization.
The entertainment line up for the evening includes the popular Anthem Band, headed up by guitarist and singer/songwriter Coozie Mellers who will headline the evening’s entertainment. Also performing will be roots reggae singer Ossie Dellimore, saxophonist Jerry Johnson, dancehall diva Lady Ann, singer/songwriter/musician Noel Jones and dancer Sister Shawne Lee. Carter Van Pelt and All Star Vaughn of WKCR’s wildly popular Saturday morning program, Eastern Standard Time, will be the evening’s musical “selectors.”
CPR invites you to come celebrate the fruits of your efforts with a rededication to the empowerment of Jah people. The event is free and open to all but RSVP is required. Please rsvp at [email protected] or call 718-421-6927.
