For over twenty years, popular radio station CHRY 105.5fm, has been serving Toronto and neighboring communities. Many say this station is responsible for keeping the Caribbean population in Toronto informed with up to date information relevant to them. CHRY has also been responsible for breaking many talents in Toronto. One such artist Steele, has been making waves locally and is on his way to being recognized as an international reggae superstar.
CHRY will host Musicville on Friday, October 14th, 2011 at the Jamaica Canadian Centre 995 Arrow Rd. in Toronto. The event will feature gospel, soca , reggae and drama from many of the city’s top performers. Steele was invited to be one of the headline performs at the event. He will be joined by other members of the reggae fraternity at the special event where the true diversity of our community will be on display all night long.
“There was no hesitation on my part”, says Steele, “when I was called to be apart of this all Canadian showcase and fundraiser. From my early years of visiting CHRY in the wee hours of the morning to now, I feel I have gained the love and support of all the volunteers at the station. For this I feel blessed. My career has truly developed because of community radio stations and I sincerely support them all, no matter where they are in Canada. Right now however it’s about CHRY 105.5” he noted.
Steele credits his rise as a respected reggae artist to the love and supports that CHRY and many other community stations across Canada have shown him.
All proceeds from Musicville will help in preserving this true community voice.
