One year after her death, Carwin will host the inaugural edition of The Celebration of the Life: J Capri, which will be held on December 17 at 10 p.m. at Spades Nightclub on Phoenix Avenue in St Andrew.
Carwin told the Star that she has been working on this project for the last seven to eight months.
As reported by the Star the celebration promises a plethora of artistes that includes “Sean Paul, Romain Virgo, Jahmiel, Demarco, Konshens, Dahj De Dadz, Starface, Neeqah, Charly Black, and the Unruly Gang.”
Music will be provided by ZJ Liquid, DJ Smurf, Nikki Z, Boom Boom, Javy Supreme, Mattic and Kemar Genius.
Proceeds from the event will go towards the J Capri Foundation, which is designed to assist specially selected students to attend the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, “to further their artistic aspirations, which is where Jordan went to study music”, Carwin said.
“With this being the inaugural edition for the celebration of birthday and life, I want this journey to be a success so that our goals to help the youth can be met,” she added.
“Planning a memorial for my only child is the last thing I wanted to do at this stage in my life. I would rather be planning her wedding, her birthday party or even the arrival of her new-born,” Carwin told the Weekend Star.
“It has been extremely emotional and overwhelming just remembering that last year this time she was still alive, and how happy and proud I was knowing that she’s doing so well and about to do greater things. But the Almighty had other plans for her, I guess. So I ask for strength and courage from the highest powers so that through the J Capri Foundation her memory will be perpetuated in the heart of her fans and the music industry.” Carwin told the Star.
