In a spectacular two day event on January 22-23, 2016 at Turtle River Park, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Chelsea Stewart wowed an audience of over 10,000 fans. The event featured Reggae and Dancehall stalwarts Capelton, Bop, Beenie Man, Luciano, Tarrus Riley, General B, Ja Mason, Lexxus , and others who musically wished Ninjaman a happy 50th Birthday.
Chelsea stepped on stage at Ninjaman’s Birthday bash and thrilled the audience with her #1 hit single Over You.
The audience was exuberant in showing their support for the Canadian singer/songwriter. At one point her voice was drowned out due to the sounds of horns coming from the happy audience members.
After a riveting performance, Chelsea began to leave the stage; she asked the audience if they wanted more, and the roar of MORE! from the crowd was enough for her to show some love with the popular Etta James classic —At Last.
The audience went into a frenzy and the sounds of horns were even more deafening!
There was no doubt that the audience loved Chelsea Stewart. One look at her and it was evident that the young singer was overjoyed by her performance and the positive response from the audience.
She graciously thanked Ninjaman for having her at his event.
Rototom Sunslpash, in Spain
This wonderful performance by Chelsea comes on the heels of her debut at the Rototom Sunsplash, in Benicàssim (Castellón, Spain), August 15 -22, 2015—it was a milestone for her. Attendees from 73 countries of the five continents were at the 22nd edition of this music festival that offered more than 18 hours of uninterrupted activity in its stages and extra-musical areas. It was estimated that over 250,000 persons attended the event.
Chelsea Stewart is the first Canadian female to perform at the festival in its 22 year history.
Organizers of the festival stated, “Her sweet and refreshing voice goes down like a glass of cold lemonade on a hot day. This talented singer and compositor is recognized for her versatility. Covering everything from classical music to Jazz and all that’s in between, Chelsea Stewart can take the audience on a trip that includes stops in the eras of Billie Holiday, Donny Hathaway, Bob Marley and even Mariah Carey.”
