Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Carlene Davis is a Jamaican gospel and reggae singer active since the 1970s. Successful since the early 1980s as a reggae artist, she survived cancer in the mid-1990s, after which she dedicated her career to gospel music. Davis was born in Colonels Ridge, Clarendon Parish and moved to England with her parents at the age of fourteen, where she began to perform professionally a year later, playing guitar in an all-girl band before joining the pop trio Toreadores. She then moved to Toronto, Canada where she lived for eight years. Davis initially found fame as a reggae singer. She recorded her debut single in Toronto, a version of "Leaving on a Jet Plane," and had a local hit with a version of Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come." In 1980 she returned to Jamaica to further her career, and performed at the Reggae Sunsplash festival in 1981show more
