Savannah Bell

11:15 - 11:30   Savannah Bell and Iya Champs, R&B

 

Savanah Bell has loved to dance since she was two years old. She was inspired by Beyoncé. At nine years old, she discovered that she could sing, but she did not sing in public just yet. Feeling inspired to show the world her talent, she performed in her school's talent show. At the age of 13, she did her first solo performance, where she sang Jill Scott’s "Golden." She recently wrote and recorded my first song entitled Motivated.

Bell will be signing with Iya Champs from Frasers Content in Spanish Town, St. Catherine. When he was in high school, Champs entered his original pieces in a music competition and won a gold medal at the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission's Festival in his region. Although his initial dream was to become a teacher, he has turned his focus to music. His singles include "Good Friend Gone," "Mama Warning," "Keep Yuh Secret" and "Gallis Anthem." He is currently working on his upcoming EP titled "Natty Dread," slated to be released later this year.

In 2008, after Haiti’s devastating earthquake, the singer wrote two songs called "The Storm is Over" and "Rete Fern," which was a reminder to everyone affected by the earthquake to stay strong. The timing of these singles and the message behind the music allowed Alexander to begin traveling to relief events at college campuses around the US.

The Rudie Crew is no exception, and what brings them together are these two amazing genres Ska and Raggae, both born in Kingston, Jamaica in the 1960s and 1970s.

 

El Husey & Dan Dulin, upon leaving the Ska fusion band Skinnerbox, formed a new band dedicated to Reggae and Ska with Dancehall vocal stylings. The Rudie Crew began rehearsing in a dank studio on Ludlow Street just south of Houston and knew right from the start that a new and exciting sound had been hatched. They are currently working on a brand new project featuring new front man Juggwise and also performing regularly in New York and New Jersey.
