After years of absence, Junior Tucker will return to the stage at this year's "Fun in the son Festival" on July 14 at National Heroes Park. The gospel singer said, "I am really looking forward to performing in Jamaica again, I am coming to lead the crowd in worship." Tucker said his absence from the Jamaican stage has been prolonged because of a busy travel schedule and his responsibilities as head of the JT Ministries and studies.
He began singing at age five and in just two years became a household name in Jamaica. At age 12, he was signed to Island Records which produced the hit song One of the Poorest People, and two years later he landed a recording contract with Geffen Records USA, which turned out Mr Telephone Man. Then at 23 he signed to Virgin Records UK, which produced hits like Don't Test and 16.
Junior Tucker will join an impressive line-up of gospel artistes onstage at Best Dressed Fun in the Son, including Papa San, Goddy Goddy, Carlene Davis, DJ Nicholas, as well as Evangelist Andrew Palau, who will minister the Word.
