Reggae Legend John Holt Passes

-  October 20th, 2014 by

John Holt

Learning of John Holt’s death the reggae family worldwide, is remembering his great works over his lifetime. He gave us many tunes we still love today, a true timeless icon for reggae music. Many believed he had passed months ago, after collapsing on stage at the One Love Reggae Concert in the UK. Rumours were quickly and happily dismissed after news had spread that the artist was recovering from the ordeal. Today we apprecilove the greatness that he contributed to the art of reggae. Let’s celebrate his life through living consciously, up-righteously and by pursuing our dreams to the fullest in the coming year.

It was just over a month ago that some offered condolences, after John Kenneth Holt had collapsed on stage at the One Love concert in London. Prayers were sent out to Holt, for a speedy recovery and it was known by some that he had been ill for a time. Unfortunately, Holt’s manager and nephew Copeland Forbes, confirmed the truth of his passing on Sunday. We’d like to send out our prayers, Jah guidance and protection to the Holt family and close friends. You now have a powerful ancestor on the other side, protecting and watching over I. Rest In Power John Holt. His contribution to the genre that is Reggae Music will never be forgotten and we thank and honour him as one of the greatest reggae icons of our time. Holt has left behind a legacy in his reggae music, that we are all grateful for. Holt’s music is timeless and will forever live on, as will his spirit. Happy Westing John Holt and thank you!
