Capleton's Management Responds to Snub by Gay Right's Groups

http://wknc.org/blog/post/wp-content/uploads/capelton.jpg

Last week, Capleton's appearances on three shows in California were cancelled due to pressure from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation
(GLAAD) and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center. Renegade
Productions, which booked Capleton for the shows, announced the
cancellations on its website.


A release from Capleton's manager, Claudette Kemp, said the artiste was saddened that he did not get the opportunity to perform for his many fans.

"They have once again used their strong-arm tactics to intimidate concert promoters and venue owners, putting misinformation in the public about the artiste to further their own agendas. Capleton is very disappointed that his many
fans, who cross all races and creeds, have not been able to see him at
his scheduled shows in California this past week. He has performed at
the same venues and festivals over the last two years with no incident
bringing a message of love for all through Reggae music," the release
said.


"The barrage of protest from these groups is unwarranted and has been addressed many times in the media in the past. The artiste has a forgiving heart for what has been done to him and will continue on
the high path. Capleton will continue to spread a positive and
spiritual message through music to the four corners of the Earth and
continue to stand firm that universal love can unite all mankind."

The release further stated that Capleton will be performing at the Annual Bob Marley Day/ Caribbean Festival 2010 in Miami on Saturday. There, he will be performing his new song, Haitians, a tribute to the earthquake victims in Haiti.


Other dancehall acts including Buju Banton, Sizzla and Beenie Man, have come under attack from gay-rights groups in recent times.
