"Sister Carol has a few songs in movies like Mighty Quinn (Principle), Failure To Launch (Original Drum) and Rachel Getting Married (Dread Natty Congo), but this is the first time that they've used her song three times in a movie," said her manager, Dean Wauchope.

Sister Carol, born Carole East, described the opening day as "a good day for me". For her though, it's a bittersweet experience as it's also the day her mother was born. "My mom would have been so happy for me," she said.

Commenting on the cameo and her song being featured, she said, "All I can say is that I am thankful to the Divine Creator for it."

On IMDb website, her role is listed as 'waiting woman'. The deejay plays a small role interacting with Meryl Streep.

Sister Carol, who is now in her mid-50s, hails from the west Kingston community of Denham Town. She migrated to New York at age 14 and it was there that she got involved in the thriving world of dancehall.
