On Sunday, June 30 at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York City’s annual music festival Groovin In The Park will return with a not-to-be-missed, all-star line up including the legendary soul diva Patti LaBelle, R&B powerhouse TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank), Grammy-winning reggae band Toots & The Maytals, dancehall icon Barrington Levy, Jamaican crooner Sanchez, the versatile reggae-dancehall titan Cocoa Tea and rising roots empress Queen Ifrica.  
The one-day park extravaganza, located on Merrick and Baisley Blvd, will open its gates at 12pm noon on the day of show. Kids 12 and under are free.

The eclectic event, that converges the most awe-inspiring talent from both the R&B and reggae world, has already cemented an enviable reputation.  Gladys Knight, Boyz II Men, Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds, Beres Hammond, Jimmy Cliff, Beenie Man, Tarrus Riley and Machel Montano are just a few of the musical icons who have graced the stage in previous years.
This year’s sponsors include Coca-Cola, TD Bank, Western Union, Grace Foods, LIME Telecommunication, Affinity Health Plan, The Door Restaurant, MoneyGram, BullZii Marketing and SQPA.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Vincent HoSang Family Foundation (VHFF), a non-profit U.S. based organization that provides charitable assist for cancer patients and hospitals throughout the Caribbean Diaspora. There are currently no linear accelerators in Jamaica, so the funds raised will go towards purchasing two of these machines (valued at $2.5 million each) for hospitals on the island.
