Happy Birthday Sanchez & Mavado !


Sanchez is one of Jamaica’s all-time favorite singers / performers who transforms his audience into a mass choir at his live performances. His vocal style has stamped songs like “Missing You,” “Amazing Grace” and “Never Dis The Man” in to Reggae catalog favorites – selectors must play these songs.

Sanchez’s versatility ranges from soulful R&B to hardcore Dancehall, and Reggae balanced with religiously calming cuts that enhance the spiritual side to his act.



Influenced by the likes of Bounty Killer and Cutty Ranks, David Constantine Brooks, aka Mavado, was born and raised in Cassava Piece. In 2004 he met his hero, Bounty Killer and later released “Real McKoy,” his breakthrough single.  Two years later, the Red Bull and Guinness riddim and the song “Weh Dem a Do” would give him his next big hit, and the successful “Dreaming” and “Bawl Dem a Bawl” singles would follow soon after.

In 2007 Mavado released his debut album, Gangsta for Life.  The album featured follow-up hits “Top Shotta Nah Miss” and “Dying” plus “Real McKoy with a Full Clip” featured in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto 4: Liberty City.

Additional hits include “So Special,” “On The Rock,” and “Give It All To Me” featuring Nicki Minaj.
