I love you" as the I-Three appeared on stage at JaRIA's awrds on Tuesday to accept the Icon Award. One by one, they appeared; Mowatt leading, followed by Griffiths and the wheelchair-bound Marley.

They accepted framed citations and trophies from culture and entertainment minister Olivia "Babsy" Grange amidst a flurry of camera flashes. Judy Mowatt remarked that it was the first time in many years that all three were sharing a stage and gave thanks for the moment.

"It has been a hard journey for us; we worked tirelessly. Pregnant, coming off tour and just going into hospital to have the baby. But here we are. We want to just thank JaRIA for presenting us with this award. It has been over 30-odd years but indeed today, in 2019, we are still being recognised and still being awarded. We give God thanks," she said.

"This is a trinity unbroken," Griffiths chimed in. For Griffiths, it was a special moment, one which has not happened in over 15 years.
