Queen Of Reggae Marcia Griffiths writes OPEN LETTER

onstagetv-marcia-griffiths-celeb-480x330[1]I am taking this opportunity to address the subject of my advertised performance on May 29th, 2016 in the beautiful city of Miami. Unfortunately I would like my fans and music lovers know that I will not be on the show.

I was approached by the promoter to be a part of this great event, but as I emphatically explained to him, I already had prior engagement in the U.K, and as much as I wish that I could be in 2 places at once to share my musical message, regrettably it is impossible. No contracts and moneys were exchanged, and I was surprised to see my picture on the various flyers and advertisements. I just want to clearly reiterate that I was not booked for the show and will not be performing.

I do not want to disappoint my wonderful fans, after 50 years in this business you all have giving me so much love and support, and for that I am eternally grateful.This upcoming year will be a celebration of 5 decades in the music business and I have big things in stores.

One Love ~
Marcia Griffiths
