Since its debut in 2002, from its parent company, Glory Music, the Fun In The Sun
Festival has grown to be the largest gospel festival in the English-speaking Caribbean.
With the continuous support of Jamaica Broilers Group, The Best Dressed Chicken and
The RJR/GLEANER Communications Group, Glory Music is scheduled to host the
Jamaica Fun In The Son Community Engagement which kicks off at the Folly Oval,
Port Antonio, Saturday, September 28 and Mandeville Sunday, September 29th with the theme: Peace, Love, and Unity. “We share the same dream for Jamaica”, President of
Jamaica Broilers Group, Chris Levy said in 2016. ‘What is one life worth’ when asked about the amount Jamaica Broilers spent on the festival.
“We’re equally yoked and that’s one of the reasons why we present it free to the public.
It’s about winning souls, it’s about caring for the lost and partnering with the major
stakeholders: Business leaders, Elected officials and Faith Leaders to promote unity,
address the needs of healthcare, supplemental food, education, and celebration is
among the reason for this community engagement initiative. The intention is to reach
communities outside the parish of Kingston that have never experienced the biennial
grand Jamaica Fun In The Son Festival”, added Tommy Cowan. Colonel Jaimie
Ogilvie (Assistant Vice President of the Hi-Pro Division) expressed the same feeling at
the Hi-Pro Denbigh Gospel Extravaganza last month during the sponsor’s greetings
recently, explained the continuous support of Hi-Pro and Jamaica Broilers is based on
their Christian values.
