All candles lit in memory of Joseph Hill
Joseph Hill (22 January 1949 / 19 August 2006) was the lead singer and songwriter for the roots reggae group Culture, most famous for their 1977 hit "Two Sevens Clash", but also well known for their "International Herb" single. Hill recorded twenty-two albums.
Hill died after collapsing following a performance in Berlin on 19 August 2006. At his funeral in September 2006, Hill was eulogised by, amongst others, Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller who recognised his contributions to Jamaican Culture and ambassadorship to the world.
His son Kenyatta subsequently took over his role in Culture.
In October 2016, producer Donovan Germain announced that he was working on a tribute album of covers of Hill's songs, to be released in 2017.
