PRESS RECORD: In addition to revealing herself as a powerhouse vocalist and a crazy-sexy-cool dancehall souldier, Cherine has proven that she also stands as a die-hard Jamaican patriot, writing and recording such empowering cuts as “Kingston State of Mind” and “Shine One Jamaica.” This month sees the release of her catchy, throbbing new track “Jamaica Tun Up Di Ting” dedicated to the country’s history-making athletes doing it big in London. More than anything, it’s a slice of pulsating, gold-plated fun.
PAGING STREEP: I knew all along that Oscar-winning screen icon Meryl Streep had profound impact on the lives of many of her fans, but a new summer beach read has arrived to remind me just how much this is fact. Mia March’s The Meryl Streep Book Club chronicles three women living on the coast of Maine who find unexpected answers, happiness, and one another with Meryl Streep movies as their inspiration. Unsurprisingly, the book is a smashing hit among readers and top critics. While Booklist calls it “a touching story of self-discovery and the strength of family,” USA Today raves, “In the tradition of Friday Night Knitting Club and The Jane Austen Book Club, this debut novel also has a healthy dose of Meryl Streep thrown in. Any romance that offers life lessons from Meryl wins on style points alone.”
