One of the great artists of my generation and the next has passed away. Frankie Paul was a very popular singer and dance hall artist. I went to many a dance hall sessions where tunes by Frankie Paul mash up the session. Whether it was straight singing or sound system dub plate. Frankie Paul was born blind in Kingston, Jamaica. He was encouraged by another popular blind artist Stevie Wonder to pursue a singing career. Very talented Frankie Paul also played a number of musical instruments; he became a major dance hall artist with a string of hits. His Final moments were spent in the place where he was born in Kingston, Jamaica.
