Jamaican singer Duane Stephenson may be recognized as one of Reggae's most talented sons with his top selling releases August Town and Black Gold but he is also a dedicated philanthropist.
He has been spreading awareness of world hunger and supporting the efforts of the United Nations' World Food Programme to aid ending hunger worldwide.
Stephenson has joined fellow musicians Christina Aguilera and 50 Cent in supporting the efforts of the United Nations' World Food Programme to aid in ending hunger worldwide.
He has teamed up with Hiko Batik on the creation of FEED AFRICA! T-shirts.
All the proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will benefit the World Food Programme and help to feed children in the Horn of Africa where a massive drought is causing a devastating famine.
Just last year, Stephenson wrote and recorded A Step for Mankind, which was recorded with The Wailers.
This is an exclusive track which calls for world unity and strength to support the ongoing struggle against world hunger.
In recognition of his efforts, Stephenson has been invited once again to attend the World Food Programme USA and Department of State's Global Hunger Conference hosted in part by US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.
Stephenson will also be on tour with The Wailers starting November 18 but before he will be performing A Step for Mankind at the 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico on October 30.
This is the largest sporting event of the year, with the aim to inspire even more people to follow in his footsteps to support the efforts.
