  3. Any Johnny Nash out there Big O?
    Johnny Nash, singer-songwriter and performer of the million-selling anthem I Can See Clearly Now, has died at the age of 80. The Texan was the first singer outside Jamaica to record Rock Steady and early Reggae hits. His label JAD was among the first to sign Bob Marley and the Wailers
