About Gregory Isaacs Foundation:
The Gregory Isaacs Foundation was set up on 15 July 2011 (Isaacs’ birthday) by his wife June Wyndham, with the intention of continuing his charitable work. A year later a free concert was staged featuring artists such as U-Roy, Big Youth, and the Mighty Diamonds, to raise funds for two schools.
In July 2015 a mural by Junior Moore depicting Isaacs was unveiled at 125 Orange Street, the former site of his Cash and Carry shop and now the Leggo Recording Studios. The unveiling also saw the launch of “Cool Ruler” spring water.
In 2016 it was announced that the Jamaican government would posthumously award Isaacs the Order of Distinction (Officer Class) in recognition of his contribution to the country’s music.
In October 2016 the UK branch of the Gregory Isaacs Foundation installed a commemorative blue plaque at 59 Weald Lane, Harrow, the house where Isaacs lived for the last three years of his life. In February 2018, a blue plaque was unveiled at Isaacs’ former home at 15 Sunrise Crescent in St. Andrew, with the foundation also announcing plans to open a museum dedicated to Isaacs at the site.
