*Two years after his USA work permit was initially revoked, controversial DJ Beenie Man, aka Moses Davis will return to the USA for his first live performance at the inaugural ‘Groovin in the Park’ concert on Sunday, July 1, 2012 at Roy Wilkins Park, Queens, NY. Beenie Man was one of five top Jamaican entertainers whose visas and work permits were revoked by The Embassy of the United States in Kingston, Jamaica in April 2010.
“I am extremely excited to announce that our booking agent here in New York, was able to secure a work permit for the dancehall king Beenie Man to be a headline performer at this year’s ‘Groovin In the Park’ concert in July 1” and elated Christopher Roberts, CEO of Groovin Inc said.
“Music fans in the tri-state area have been waiting for a very long time for the opportunity to see Beenie Man perform live here in the USA again. I am glad we were instrumental in making it happen for them. Beenie Man is an extremely talented entertainer and we are happy that he will be again able to showcase his talents on stage in New York” Roberts said.
Joining Beenie Man on stage at ‘Groovin In The Park’ will be heavyweight headliners R Kelly, Boyz II Men, Beres Hammond and Jimmy Cliff. The event is in part a tribute to three great nations who are celebrating independence anniversaries: the United States celebrating 236, and Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago who are both celebrating 50 this year.
