Friday, April 10, 2009

It has just been announced that, The IV Peoples’ Summit has invited Jamaican conscious reggae performer Dennis McKay aka Mackie Conscious, to be a guest performer at this year‘s Fifth Summit of the Americas conference. This year’s event will be held for the first time in the Caribbean; the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago from April 17 - 19, 2009.

Mackie having achieved International recognition for his conscious works in the Reggae Entertainment field, is world renowned as One of Jamaica’s Premier, Reggae Conscious Artists. It is fitting that the invitation was extended to Mackie, as this years’ theme for The Fifth Summit of the Americas is: “Securing Our Citizens’ Future by Promoting Human Prosperity, Energy Security and Environmental Sustainability”.

When asked, what is so special about this particular Artist? The response is always; That “by all appearances Mackie truly lives and sings about the real consciousness of life”. This consciousness is shown like a beacon of light through the social awareness and positive messages in his music. From conscious songs such as “The World is in Trouble” “Cell phone on the Hip” to “More Reality”, Mackie’s musical expressions seems to personify the person within. It is well noted as of late; there has been much negative press on Reggae Artist going’s on. In such light; Mackie considers it “an honour’ to be recognized for his positive lyrics and to be invited to such a prestigious event. It is more than noteworthy of what an honour it is, for Mackie Conscious to be invited to this Summit: The mere fact that – The president of the United States of America – President Obama will also be in attendance.

The official White House press states: President Barack Obama will go to the Fifth Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago in “a spirit of equality,” looking to exchange ideas with the region’s leaders and hear what they have to say about a range of issues. Being a true Reggae Ambassador - Mackie Conscious will also visit media houses across Trinidad and Tobago to share his music and promote the message of true Peace, Love and Unity.
