I have been living in England for most of my life and it's times like this that I feel like a real minority. Because, I would like to hear an acknowledgement of the loss and appreciation of John Holt all around me, including in the mainstream such as on Smooth FM, another radio station I often listen to.
I would like the whole world to share in my mourning for the late great legendary reggae singer, John Holt.
Thankfully, I belong to that 'minority' where John Holt death is far from insignificant or invisible.
We salute you, John Holt, we, strong, in the large ‘minority community’ in Britain. You will never be forgotten for your contribution to our much loved reggae music. Your music and lyrics will continue to sustain and transcend us to places where we experience loves found, lost and craved.
I’m so glad I had the pleasure of seeing you in concert at the 02, in Greenwich, this summer and am sorry I will never get that pleasure again.
