Sanchez Honored at Unifest; May 17 officially declared Sanchez Day in Miramar Florida

Reggae singer Sanchez was honoured at Unifest for his career accomplishments and contribution to reggae music.  On Saturday May 17, Commissioner Alexandra Davis on behalf of Mayor Lori Mosley and fellow commissioners of the city of Miramar, presented Kevin 'Sanchez' Jackson with a proclamation; citing May 17, 2014 as the official 'Sanchez Day' in the City of Miramar.

Unifest, an event put on by the Greater American Cultural Coalition (GCACC) focuses on bringing various Caribbean countries and islands together to highlight their rich cultural heritage. Unifest is a multicultural festival celebrating 20 years of bringing cultures together.  

Moved beyond words a tearful Sanchez had this to say, "As an artist I perform and sing because I love it. I don't sing with the expectation that I must get an award for this. I do it for the love of my fans, music and the mercy of the Almighty. But! I must say to receive such a high recognition from a city I love and embrace as another home I say thank you.  to the Commissioner and Mayor Daisley, Unifest members I thank you again from the bottom of my heart and to God be the Glory."

Sanchez is embraced by fans of different cultures worldwide extending from across Europe, Africa, North America, Asia and the Caribbean. With a busy summer schedule ahead Sanchez will return to the studios to work with prominent producers Shane Brown of Juke Boxx, Bobby Digital and Don Corleone.
