Reggae singer Etana announces Spring 2015 US tour dates in support of her latest album “I Rise.”
Following her recent initiative to “Stop Ebola and Build For the Future,” the Jamaican singer joins Hawaiian songstress Anuhea on June dates.
In addition to raising awareness for her most recent initiative to fight Ebola, Etana also continues to tour in support of her latest album I Rise (VP Records).
This will be the second leg of her U.S. I Rise Tour, following dates with reggae icon Cocoa Tea this past fall.
Etana’s “I Rise” album is now available on iTunes.
Etana dropped her fourth album I Rise on Oct 28, 2014. The album was helmed primarily by the legendary Jamaican multi-instrumentalist and producer Clive Hunt (Stevie Wonder, Peter Tosh, Rolling Stones, The Wailers, Grace Jones, Jimmy Cliff).
It hit #1 on the U.S. Billboard Reggae Album chart, making Etana one of the three Jamaican female artists ever and the first in nearly two decades (since Diana King and Patra in the mid-90s) to land this highly-coveted chart position.
“I Rise” follows Etana’s critically-acclaimed albums Better Tomorrow (2013), Free Expressions (2011) and The Strong One (2008).
With poised assurance, she continues to evolve spiritually, mentally, emotionally and musically and carry the torch as reggae’s leading lady.
In conjunction with VP Records and led by United African Congress, Give Them A Hand Foundation and the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, Etana recently became actively involved with the “Stop Ebola and Build For the Future” campaign.
She performed at a special launch event held in the United Nation’s headquarters in NYC. Her song “Better Tomorrow” was also chosen as the initiative’s official anthem.
She is donating the song, so that the proceeds go towards children orphaned by Ebola and rebuilding the communities affected in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
The song was featured on the iTunes Music homepage and peaked at #2 on iTunes reggae singles’ chart.
