News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Fri. Jan. 22, 2016: A Jamaican reggae singer who has been active since the 1970s has proven she is still relevant with a spot this week on the Billboard Reggae Top 10 charts.

Carlene Davis, who began performing at age 15, and went to have hits with songs “Like Old Friends Do,” “It Must Be Love,” “Winnie Mandela,” “Stealing Love on the Side,” “Dial My Number” and “Going Down to Paradise,” is now on the Billboard reggae charts with her new gospel-reggae hit “Dripping Blood.” The song is all about Jesus Christ dying on the cross.

It was released in 2014 and debuted at number 3 on the Billboard reggae charts recently.

Davis was named Minister of music for The Family Church on the Rock in Kingston. In 2006 she gained a doctorate in pastoral counseling from the Trinity Theological Seminary in South Florida. She has her own recording studio, Judah Recording, and the Glory Music productions record label, which she runs with her husband Tommy Cowan.
