Frankie Paul invades Harbourfront Centre this weekend

Before you watch the video below, it might be a good idea to get to know the person who owns that silky voice talking about the Island Soul Festival at Harbourfront Centre. Known as the “Jamaican Stevie Wonder,” more for his vocal range than for his visual impairment, Frankie Paul began his famous career as a beloved dancehall reggae artist at the tender age of 13. After learning to play the piano, drums and guitar while in a Salvation Army school for the blind (he was once suspended for “singing too much”), he recorded “African Princess” and hasn’t stopped since then. He’s made around 50 albums! He’ll be performing here over the weekend, and he’s so excited that he sent us a recording urging all fans to come on down to see the shows we have lined up. Just click Play, and enjoy the smooth stylings of  Jamaica’s own, Frankie Paul.
