CHRISTOPHER MARTIN TAKES NEW YORK FOR NO DISRESPECT CAMPAIGN AND AFUWI GALA

Ahead of his forthcoming second studio album “And Then”, out May 3rd on VP Records, Christopher Martin will be in New York for two important events. Martin will be visiting two schools in Brooklyn this week for the #NoDisrespect Campaign where he will be promoting messages of hope and a future to students. Furthering his educational, philanthropic mission, he will be attending and performing at the American Foundation For The University of the West Indies (AFUWI) 22nd Annual Legacy Awards Gala to help raise funds for the University of West Indies Scholarship Fund, this evening at the Pierre Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. 

With the upcoming launch of his second album, Chris was determined to give back and help raise the goals and expectations of youthful fans at home and abroad. In doing so, he teamed with the The Kulture Movement on the #NoDisrespect Campaign, which aims to educate the youth on behaviors that garner respect without resorting to violence. Shani Kulture of Hot 97.1 is spearheading the campaign and tapped Martin for the “School Tour,” which sends Martin to New York City Public Schools where he will lead workshops and engage with the kids in spreading his message of positivity and self-worth. The singer who dreamt up the lyrics to the hit song “I’m A Big Deal” is delivering positive vibes and a hopeful message to kids at a crucial time in their lives.

“And Then” is the follow up to Martin’s debut full length-album, “Big Deal”, which reached the top 5 on the Reggae Billboard Charts in 2017. Hoping to build upon his momentum as one of the budding vocalists in reggae, Martin’s sophomore album will be released on May 3rd. Singles “Bun Fi Bun,” “Come Back,” and “Can’t Dweet Again” have been released. His focus track “Life” will be out March 15th.

“I want to tell the youth to keep reaching for your dreams and never stop dreaming of what can come next,” said Christopher. “Kids need more than positive messages, they need the elders to take time to encourage them.”
