Remembering the entertainers who passed on in 2010

CaribbeanFever and FeverEyes will reflect on some of the highlights of 2010. Today we look at the  personalities who have left us - both in Jamaica and on the international scene.

Sugar Minott
On Sunday, July 11 Jamaicans woke up to the shocking news that Reggae stalwart Sugar Minot had made the transition from life to death. The 'Herbman Hustling' singer will surely be missed.

Gregory Isaacs
October 25 will never be forgotten as it is the day that the cool ruler Gregory Isaacs made his exit from this world. What can we say this one is a really hard blow to take in Reggaeland.

I thought the previous two years were tough for lost artists and iconic figures, but R.I.P. for the 2010 people who have gone on to Glory...
