October 17, 2011 - Multiple Grammy Award-winning Reggae Superstar Damian Marley has partnered with the Caribbean Education Foundation, Inc. (CEF) to headline its "STAND UP - Educate the Youths" BENEFIT CONCERT to help children in Jamaica attend high school.
The STAND UP Benefit Concert will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at the beautiful outdoor music venue, Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Caribbean Education Foundation Jamaica Scholarship Programs. 
The theme of the concert is "leadership, pride, compassion and action" and how they intertwine to "educate the youth".  "STAND UP - Educate the Youths", CEF's 2011 Education Benefit Concert, features Damian Marley and music artists who exemplify the qualities of leadership, pride, compassion and take action to support education for poor youths.  These global music leaders will lend their voices to the need for educational access in countries such as Jamaica.
When asked the reasons Caribbean Education Foundation chose international reggae superstar Damian Marley as its Partner and Headliner for STAND UP, CEF President & CEO, Nikiki T. Bogle, Esq. explains, "STAND UP exemplifies artists who are taking positive actions for a better world and Damian Marley is a natural fit with this tremendous effort.  Damian Marley is not only a Spectacular Entertainer and Musical Genius, but he is also a Humanitarian who deeply cares about disadvantaged children and understands there is a critical need to provide them with meaningful access to education.  Therefore, it was natural for us to request that Damian Marley partner with CEF and he immediately embraced our efforts and took action."
