After an exciting weekend where Cherine Anderson rocked back-to-back, sold-out nights at the famed Madison Square Garden, her signature voice chanting ‘Come Down, Selector’ was heard in a surprising place – blasting from an intro on CNN’s morning show.
As the hit song Say Hey (I Love You) rang out to start the day for countless viewers, it capped off an amazing weekend for Cherine in the Big Apple!
There are very few things that could stop the determined dancehall-soulstress from giving a memorable and energetic performance.
Braving freezing temperatures and a snowstorm that dumped over 20 inches of snow in New York’s Central Park, Cherine came out blazing, bringing Jamaican sunshine and her dancehall-soul energy to two sold-out performances at the famed Madison Square Garden.
On the first night, she took the stage like a storm and really got the crowd up and moving. Dressed in a classic custom-made blazer of royal blue with neon orange accents, she represented more than just Jamaica, she also represented New York by wearing the team colours of the New York Knicks.
Backstage she was again rewarded with positive feedback for her performance, including a compliment of “great performance” from Warner Music Group’s vice-chairman, Lyor Cohen. On the second night, Anderson delighted the audience as she rushed onto the stage excitedly and started the show asking, “New York, yuh ready? Cause dis is a Dancehall-Soul ting”! Her entrance ignited many to stand up for what was an impressive one-hour-set filled with dancehall-soul-rebel-rocking goodness. The back-to-back Madison Square Garden performances were a first for both Cherine Anderson and Michael Franti & Spearhead.
