Jamaican songstress Cherine's "Eagles & Doves" has been selected by major UK radio station, KISS FM as their Kiss Fresh Track of the Week. The song has been receiving positive feedback from DJs both locally and international.
"Eagles & Doves" is produced by Dream Queen and Shadow for the Dancehall-Soul Label and is the follow-up single to Cherine's powerful ballad "How We Living."
The radio mix of the song samples the Sly & Robbie 90's hit beat "Fed Up" and is perfect for the summer. Both the radio as well as the acoustic versions of "Eagles & Doves" will be available for digital music purchase on major online music stores, including iTunes and Amazon, in June.
Cherine first performed the acoustic version of the song at the Princess Diana Award reception honoring Jamaican Olympic athlete Asafa Powell to overwhelming positive response by those in attendance. The song has since been requested to be performed for events supporting cancer outreach and has been a hit with school children during her participation in the Reach One Child Jamaica School Tour.
"Eagles & Doves" was also used for both the radio and television commercials for the recently held "Women Expo", an initiative of the Bureau of Women Affairs and United Nations funded "Way Out Project" aimed at creating opportunities for Jamaican women in business.
Legendary DJ and KISS FMs broadcaster David Rodigan has been a long term supporter of great Jamaican music and stated, " "Eagles & Doves" is a charismatic song of hope delivered with true passion and verve over a driving powerhouse rhythm. Cherine is unquestionably one of Jamaica's most outstanding and soulful vocalists."
Cherine is set to perform at several festivals in North America this summer including Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in Booneville, California, Calgary Reggae Festival in Alberta Canada as well as Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival in British Columbia. Adding to her many activities her team has released a series of dancehall tracks, "Haffi Come Back" (Coolie Gyal Riddim) as well as the new duet "Make Love To Me" featuring new hot DJ G-Blunt, that are already creating a buzz locally.
