MIRAMAR – This coming December 13, will mark 40 years since little Jamaican music star Nadine Sutherland came to prominence, winning the first Tastee Talent Contest back in 1979 with her vocal skills.
The accomplished artist plans a year-long celebration, which will begin on Friday, October 18 at the Miramar Cultural Center when she performs “All Grown Up” with the Code Red Band.
Another former child star, Chris “Johnny” Daley, will share the stage with Sutherland, making for an exceptional evening of music and comedy.
After winning the Tastee Talent Contest, Nadine immediately moved on to become the first artist signed by Bob Marley to his Tuff Gong label, recording “Starvation on the Land” at age eleven. Her career blossomed, as she grew to become one of the top female singers in reggae with a solid catalogue of hits. Over the years she has recorded major hits to include “Action” with Terror Fabulous, “Wicked Dickie” with Buju Banton, “Babyface” and “Big Tingz”.
