Similar yesterday’s viewing of Gregory Isaacs body at the National Indoor Sports Centre in Kingston, Jamaicans will today come out in their thousands to bid one final farewell to Reggae crooner Gregory Isaacs.
The theme for the Thanksgiving Service is Red Rose for Gregory and persons attending being asked to take along a red rose and to wear black or white or a combination and to be seated by 9:30 am.
The first hour of the service will be a musical tribute to Gregory and will feature Reggae artistes including Lloyd Parkes and We the People Band, Ken Boothe, Freddie McGregor, Mavado, the Tamlins and Bongo Herman.
Scores of singers across several genres and spanning all generations have already confirmed their participation in the musical farewell. Following Saturday’s service another musical motorcade will pass through Kingston on its way to Gregory’s final resting place at the Dovecot Memorial Park in St. Catherine.
