In 1984, he released his debut single, Love People, which was featured on the soundtrack of the movie Club Paradise. His vocals were also featured in The Howling III and The Fourth Protocol. Brown was also a regular performer in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and has released popular songs like We Need To Learn, Beautiful Lady, My Father My Friend and Words Of Wisdom along with an elegant rendition of 'Ave Maria' by the legendary Luciano Pavarotti.

"Our Mother’s Day Luncheon is an annual event aimed at fundraising for supporting our mission towards the students' welfare programme at Ardenne High School in Jamaica," Mark White, vice- president of the Ardenne Alumni Association (Toronto Chapter), disclosed.

"Over the years, these funds have provided valuable contributions to the Joyce Britton Music Room, Global Leaders Programme for Students, and the Lunch-Feeding Assistance. In addition the event also honours the mothers in our Toronto community and provides stellar entertainment for the whole family," White said. 

About Ardenne Alumni Association (Toronto Chapter), AAA

A chance encounter while standing at a bus stop in the ‘70s brought two Ardennites together in Toronto. These two individuals very quickly, began connecting with other Ardennites.  Before long, the number of members grew and the alliance became stronger.

In 1981, the aspirations of the group expanded into officially organizing the group to help students at Ardenne High School in Jamaica. Thus, the Ardenne Past Students Association (APSA) Toronto was established and a new era in the scope and impact of the past students’ community began. The group has changed its name to Ardenne Alumni Association (Toronto Chapter) AAA and has blossomed from one of networking and socializing to one with a common purpose—helping the students of Ardenne High School and after 33 years that agenda remains paramount. 

The association continues to set high standards through its dedicated efforts as a vibrant and resourceful force in helping its alma mater to achieve major accomplishments—whether working on its own, or partnering with other Ardenne Associations and system partners.

AAA (Toronto Chapter) continues to make bold strides ahead both locally and abroad.  For more information, please contact Mark White at 647-282-8339.
