Garnet Silk impacted on the lives of many with his humility and powerful uplifting songs. It is with this in mind that a committee of concerned individuals in the music fraternity have decided to come together to arrange with media houses to highlight the life's work of this music icon.
All this is in an effort to keep the late Garnet Damon Smith aka Garnet Silk's memory alive.
Silk's appeal spread much further afield than Jamaica – without a doubt his contributions have had international appeal and he has added significantly to our rich musical heritage.
From Monday, December 10 through to December 16, the committee will keep Garnet Silk's memory alive by hosting activities all week long.
For that week the committee is encouraging media houses to interview those formerly affiliated with Garnet and play his music as often as possible throughout the week. Fans are encouraged to call in to radio stations and send in letters to the editor describing what Garnet Silk meant to them.
YardFlex would also like to hear from lovers of the late Garnet Silk's music. Just vibes with us for this week and share in keeping this singer's memory burning.
