ETANA MOVES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH
Following on a highly successful 2008 season in which she captivated many hearts and collected quite a few awards, highly-acclaimed singer/song-writer Etana, is still making her incredible journey.
Hailed as the Strong One, Etana is imbued with that quiet passion that ignites whenever she’s in her element — and that means on stage performing for her adoring fans. Recently returned from Barbados, where her performance surely gained her a whole new set of fans in that reggae-loving Caribbean island, Etana is scheduled to give a not-to-be-missed local performance come Saturday night. She will be the special guest at ‘Jordu Live’ a fairly new series which allows patrons and artistes to commune in an intimate setting.
This event will be held at the Jordu fashion boutique located in 7th Avenue Plaza and the show promoters are excitedly anticipating the arrival of Etana to give even greater credence to the already successful showcase.
“Etana is such a warm person, both on and off stage and it’s as if the intimacy and the ambience were created especially for her,” the promoter declared.
Quite occupied with rehearsals for this show, in addition to other upcoming overseas engagements, Etana is also on a promotional blitz for her latest singles, Free, Caltariba System and Blessings, the sensuous collab with Italian reggae artiste Alborosie which is exploding on the airwaves. The song climbed to the coveted number one slot on overseas charts a few months ago and it’s popularity has not waned, in fact, it seems to have increased.
With the video now out and in rotation, it will be interesting to see the blessings that will undoubtedly follow Blessings.
