NEW York radio personality DJ Norie is pleased to be a part of the line-up of the Issa Trust Foundation ‘For the Children’ charity gala concert scheduled for Sony Hall in Manhattan on November 12.

“I feel honoured and humbled to be an element of any cause that uplifts children and the community. The youth are our future,” he told the Jamaica Observer‘s Splash.

The event might be held under the distinguished patronage of Member of Parliament Juliet Holness, and under the auspices of the Consul General of Jamaica, New York, Alison Roach Wilson.

The aim of the event is to lift funds to construct a health centre that can provide primary care to children and adolescents in St Ann.

The Issa Trust Foundation was established in 2005 by Couples Resorts as a non-profit organisation. The mission of the muse is to offer a system of prevention, health promotion and education, community health improvement and other services to advertise the well-being and development of the Jamaican people.

Also billed for the charity gala is Third World, and Leon and the Peoples.

DJ Norie, who’s of Panamanian parentage, has been within the industry for about 20 years and is a staple on The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 FM. He has also worked with dancehall giants equivalent to Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, and Mavado.

He plays reggae and dancehall music during all of his sets.

Meanwhile, the disc jockey said he has other plans within the works that he hopes will materialise briefly order.

“I’m at all times seeking to learn something new, try something new and see something new. I need to work with every type of individuals so I stay positive to maintain the opportunities coming. There is just not next there may be now. I even have music I’m producing. I’m also opening up a food chain in NYC,” he said.
