light up the crowds at the Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival
___This year, tens of thousands of tourists have been coming to Montego
Bay in Jamaica for all the usual reasons: tropical sun, warm Caribbean
waters, great food, golf and shopping. But as winter's chill settles over
half of North America, Montego Bay offers something to warm the heart and
soul as well: music. All kinds of music.
___Michael Bolton appeared for the first time at the grand daddy of all
Caribbean music festivals -- the Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, now
in its 10th year at Montego Bay. It was also the first time for Jamaica's
new Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller to appear on the festival stage to
endorse the event.
___Other headliners at this year's spectacle included Sean Paul, Kenny
Rogers, Earth Wind and Fire, Shaggy and many reggae artists. If you missed
this year's jazz festival, you can still enjoy the many attractions Montego
Bay has to offer. For more information, please visit: http://www.visitjamaica.com.
