Legendary Jamaican reggae music icon, the late Dennis Brown was celebrated at the first official Reggae Icons Concert on Sunday at the waterfront in downtown Kingston.

According to organisers, Brown was chosen as the first icon to be celebrated due to his contribution to the growth of the indigenous music. During Brown’s career, he recorded more than 75 albums and was one of the major stars of lovers’ rock. Bob Marley cited Brown as his favourite singer, dubbing him "The Crown Prince of Reggae".

Luciano, Dean Fraser, Ken Boothe, Tony Rebel, Alaine and Iba Mahr were among the host of musicians who celebrated Brown through performances. Watch the video edited by Marlon Reid below.
