|Marcia Griffiths, Lady Saw earn lifetime honours|
Singer Marcia Griffiths and deejay Lady Saw will be recipients of Lifetime Achievement Awards on Saturday, when Sheba Productions stages its Symphony of Love show at Wickie Wackie in Bull Bay.
The free event, which is co-produced by Gully Bank Music, is a first for Sheba Productions.
Spokesperson Jah'Mila Smith says the company's objective is to highlight the work of female performers, some of whom have not been embraced by the mainstream.
Several of those entertainers are scheduled to perform on Saturday. They include Leontre, Jah9, Sherieta, Chant-I, Kai Wakeling, Damale Ife, Radha Ruiz, Raquel Jones, Rochelle Brown and Smith.
Singer Lorna Bennett, best known for the 1970s hit song, Breakfast In Bed, will also perform.
The show begins at 3 p.m., with activities that include yoga demonstrations by Yoga Angels and wine and food sampling.
Griffiths is one of reggae's most enduring performers. Her career started in the 1960s at Studio One where she recorded hits such as Feel Like Jumping and Truly.
She was a member of the I Three, Bob Marley's harmony group in the 1970s, but maintained a successful career with classic songs like Dreamland and Stepping Outa Babylon.
Griffiths had several hit songs during the 1990s for Penthouse Records.
Lady Saw is among the prolific hit-makers in contemporary dancehall. Born Marion Hall, her suggestive lyrics and outrageous stage performances have made her a favourite for almost 20 years.
The raunchy Stab Out The Meat and Give Me A Reason are two of her hits.
