In the 1980's gifted Jamaican reggae artist George Wright, now affectionately known as Brotha George, burst onto the scene with the reggae and dancehall hit Secret Admirer. Adorned with Wright’s classic vocals, which evoked memories of many of the great Jamaican rock steady artist of the past, the song soon rocketed to the top of the charts.
Still in his teens, Wright was well on his way to securing a career as a popular reggae icon for years to come, as he toured the world and delighted audiences.
Brotha George’s father loved calypso music and his brother had been a member of the legendary Reggae band The Meditations.
His future was easily laid out before him, but the Lord had other intentions. In retrospect, the change in his life began conspicuously enough when he felt compelled to retire to bed one early evening at 7 p.m. He then spent the entire night dreaming of singing his composition "Journey", which is currently on his latest CD “My Soul is in Your Hand” through VP records. So vivid was this dream that he awoke the next morning with a sore throat, prompting his mother to opine that this was indeed God’s call for him to use his talent and spread the Gospel.
Years later another call from the Lord came through as Wright stood to sing at a friend’s wedding. So impactful was his performance that the pastor presiding over the ceremony beseeched him to perform at church services the following day. The decision to completely dedicate his life and music to spreading the powerful message of God came two weeks later when, while driving, he became the victim of a head-on collision and walked away unscratched.
Brotha George Wright has continued to spread the word of the Lord through a ministry of exceptional songs and his amazing voice. With songs that speak to the spiritual hunger of his listeners.
His latest CD entitled “Worship with Christ” produced by Sidney Mills is being regarded as his best work to date. A true testament is his 4 nominations in 2012 Atlanta’s Caribbean Gospel Award – as best new male vocal.
