Patti LaBelle & Sanchez Added to “Groovin’ In The Park” Line Up Held at Roy Wilkins Park
The annual New York City music festival Groovin In The Park is pleased to announce that the legendary soul diva Patti LaBelle and reggae crooner Sanchez have been added to the concert for Sunday June 30 at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York. This year’s concert lineup will also feature reggae legends like Toots & The Maytals, Barrington Levy, Cocoa Tea and Queen Ifrica as well as r&b powerhouse TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank).
The eclectic event, that converges the most awe-inspiring talent from both the r&b and reggae world, has already cemented an enviable reputation. Gladys Knight, Boyz II Men, Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds, Beres Hammond, Jimmy Cliff, Beenie Man, Tarrus Riley and Machel Montano are just a few of the musical icons who have graced the stage in previous years.
The one-day park extravaganza, located on Merrick and Baisley Blvd, will open its gates at 12pm noon on the day of show. Kids 12 and under are free. The early bird special for tickets bought before or on May 31st is $49.99 for general admission and $99 for VIP. After May 31st, tickets will be $69.99 for general admission and $120 for VIP. Tickets are available at local retail stores and restaurants. For more information where to purchase, please visit www.groovininthepark.com.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Vincent HoSang Foundation (VHFF), a non-profit U.S. based organization that provides charitable assist for cancer patients and hospitals throughout the Caribbean Diaspora. There are currently no linear accelerators in Jamaica, so the funds raised will go towards purchasing two of these machines (valued at $5 million each) for hospitals on the island.
