Reggae Legend Freddie McGregor: “Music Can be Therapeutic in Times Like These”

World-renowned multi award winning legendary Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter, music producer, and entrepreneur Freddie McGregor is known for numerous hit songs that tug at the heartstrings. McGregor has released his first single for 2020 titled, “If God Is For Us” on his label Big Ship. The artiste is recognized globally for his epic music catalogue which includes “Push Come To Shove”, “I Will Wait For You”, and “Big Ship”.

The age-defying, hardworking and never slowing down music star released “If God Is For Us” on May 1, 2020, an inspiring, uplifting, and catchy Reggae song. According to the Big Ship crooner, “This song was recorded years ago. At first when I heard the rhythm, it inspired the lyrics which came flowing instantly. I decided to do a reproduction of “If God Is For Us,” and so I teamed up with popular Jamaican music producer Dalton Browne to re-record the song.

During the production process, we realized that the song’s lyrical content and message is in conjunction with what is happening in the world today, amid the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) which puts normal lifestyles to a staggering halt, where many people are turning to inspirational songs for comfort… something to help them adjust through the quarantine. Music can be therapeutic, especially in times like these.”

“If God Is For Us” is available on all major online digital music platforms for purchasing. The single will be featured on Freddie McGregor’s upcoming album which will be the 41st album added to his music career resume. “If God Is For Us” will be accompanied with a music video – presently, the concept is being formulated.

It has been two weeks since the song has been released and it’s already gaining massive traction on radio stations in the Caribbean, UK, U.S.A. and Africa. On May 4, 2020, the single entered on the Clinton Lindsay South Florida Top 25 Reggae Chart, powered on The Foundation Radio Media Network. The Clinton Lindsay Chart is the longest-running ethic Reggae chart in the U.S.A. For 30 years to present, Clinton Lindsay has been a driving force in the development and promotion of Reggae music in the U.S.A.
