Formerly known as the Caribbean Festival, The Annual 9 Mile Music Festival is also a canned food drive to help feed the hungry in South Florida and rural parts of Jamaica. Created in order to fill the demand for an event to celebrate and pay tribute to the life of the legendary Bob Marley, this daylong festival generates at least 11,000 fans annually. The festival also features a wide variety of international food as well as an arts and crafts marketplace, and a main stage, which is used for the facilitation of a plethora of live entertainers.
Bob Marley Movement of Jah People’s Caribbean Festival is not only a music festival but a humanitarian effort to feed the hungry. For the past 17 years, we have asked our patrons to help us keep the spirit and message of Bob Marley alive by contributing to our Food Drive. To date, the festival has collected over 1 million canned goods to benefit other charitable organizations dedicated to the eradication of hunger and malnutrition throughout the state of Florida. This year our Food Drive will benefit Curley’s House, an organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for low-to-moderate income individuals, families, the elderly, youth-at-risk, the abused and HIV/AIDS infected individuals by providing bulk food product to needy residents.

SuperHeavy, the supergroup made up of Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, AR Rahman, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley and Dave Stewart, have posted the video for their debut single online.
The video is for “Miracle Worker”, which is the first track taken from the group’s self titled debut album, which is due out on September 19. The album has been produced by Jagger and Stewart.
The track is heavily reggae influenced, with Stone, Jagger and Damian Marley sharing lead vocals. The song’s video also features The Rolling Stones man in an extremely dashing pink suit.
Jagger has previously compared Super Heavy to The Rolling Stones, claiming:
“If you’re a Rolling Stones fan there’s definitely stuff you can relate to. Other stuff that you can’t relate to so much, maybe if you listen you’ll enjoy it. I don’t think it’s so far off the beaten track that you can’t understand it.”
