Sean Paul--ready to do his thing in New York
Reggae fans are expected to storm the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, located at 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West in the Bronx, in a bid to get tickets for Lehman’s engagement of Jamaican superstar, Grammy Award-winning SEAN PAUL, who is expected to appear complete with band and dancers to blow the venue off the map when the superstar delivers what is anticipated to be an explosive show on Saturday, November 8th at 8:00 p.m.
People who have wondered why they haven’t heard anything from Sean Paul for awhile will be glad to know that he has been touring in support of his “Trinity” album. “I always tour and travel a lot when my albums come out. Usually all over the USA first, and then I tour Europe. I try to hit all the major markets and radio stations to show my fans love,” remarked Sean Paul who was born in Kingston, Jamaica.
Born into the world, Sean Paul Henriques, Sean Paul came by his athletic dexterity naturally since both his parents were athletes, although his mother Frances is a well known painter. Of mixed heritage, Paul’s father is a Sephardic Jew of Portuguese descent and his mother is Chinese and Afro-Caribbean. Swimming is a special talent in Sean’s family with Sean himself excelling in water polo. “I used to swim and play the sport of water polo representing Jamaica and I actually still play water polo sometimes,” stated the Paul who played for the national water polo team until he was 21.
Sean Paul is a definite money maker since his breakthrough CD “Dutty Rock” won the 2002 Grammy for Best Reggae Album, grossing six-million dollars. This hit brought global popularity to Jamaican dancehall music with Sean following up with such smash hits as “Gimme the Light,” “Get Busy” and “Like Glue.” Not to be outdone he followed his success with duets, such as “Baby Boy” (with Beyoncé), “I’m Still in Love with You” (with Sasha) and “Break It Off” (with Rihanna) making Sean Paul the most successful Jamaican artist of all time on the U.S. charts, which includes three #1 singles, five Top Ten hits, and eight chart entries over two worldwide, multi-platinum albums.
