Wikipedia : This day (April 1, 1948), in St. James, Jamaica, is born James Chambers a.k.a. Jimmy Cliff, a Jamaican singer.

Official Site : With a legacy stretching back nearly 50 years, the Honourable Jimmy Cliff is still standing as one of the prime movers and continuing shapers of modern music. With a catalog that ranks among the most influential in global culture, Cliff remains a forceful voice of power and conscience, creating new music as vital and vibrant as ever. Teamed with producer Tim Armstrong — the Rancid front man who has cited Cliff as his most admired artist — Cliff is working on his first new album in seven years, a set which builds on his unparalleled history and points to a wide-open future.

@Facebook : Outside of the reggae world, he is best known for his film appearance in The Harder They Come. Jimmy Cliff was one of five performers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.

@last.fm : Cliff moved to Kingston in 1962. After he released two singles that failed to make much of an impression, his career took off when his “Hurricane Hattie” became a hit, while he was aged just 14; it was produced by Leslie Kong, with whom Cliff would remain until Kong’s death.
