The Jamaican Tenor

“People think Jamaica is all reggae and dancehall,” Higgins explains. “That is so far from the truth. Parts of our musical appetites were fed from all over the world.”​ With his annual concerts, Steve Higgins and Friends celebrate music, culture, and dance. With budding young artists and seasoned professionals, Steve Higgins support and dedication to bringing arts to the community transcends generations. Partners for Youth is proud to collaborate with Steve Higgins and part of proceeds from Annual Concerts go to specific outreach partnership with the SOS Children's Village.
