Wesrok delivers Christmas single and good cheer
While many believe Christmas is cancelled, country reggae recording artiste Wesrok begs to differ, and urges people to keep the faith as they embark on the festive season.
The Poor Country Boy singer has released a Christmas single titled I Want to Go Home for Christmas for the season.
The single, that Wesrok executive-produced, speaks to his humble beginnings and about making the best out of Christmas.
He said, "Christmas in my home was and still is about family. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in so many losses for families whether it is financial or otherwise. This song celebrates the family and unity during Christmas because no matter what the circumstances are, we all need to embrace the place where we consider to be home this festive season."
As a part of his early Christmas celebration, Wesrok donated tablets and school supplies to Bibleway Basic School in his home town of Swamp Lane in Bog Walk, St Catherine.
The school caters to 30 students ages three to six years old. "I lived in poverty for years so being able to give back to my home town is always an amazing feeling," added Wesrok.
Wesrok is currently promoting singles such as Looking Back and Do You Love My Jesus.
The former police superintendent said, "I was a part of the Jamaica Constabulary Force for almost 27 years and during that time, I listened to predominantly conscious music which helped me to keep a sound mind despite all that I faced. Music is an escape for many so I created music that would resonate in the heart of my fans."
Wesrok received the Prime Minister's Award for Community Development in 2013 and still maintains his charity work.
