Stalwart singer and performing arts director Nadine Sutherland was beaming with pride when she posted on her Facebook page how elated she was to be among the honorees.

"I'm here feeling elated...To be recognized for your work on a diaspora level was awesome. The Blue and Bougie Impact Awards recognition validated thoughts I had about myself as an artist.

"Original #CHO..NADINE Sutherland, whose career started over 35 years ago as a child singer, is one of five persons to be honored at the inaugural Blue & Bougie party...#PureNiceness Nadine Sutherland" Marley posted on her Facebook page.

Sutherland responded saying, "This congratulations from Cedella Marley means so much to me...Getting this congratulations from her, took me back to my start in the business at Tuff Gong, where Cedella and I were music mates as tweens. I miss those days. Respect to Bob Marley, Rita Marley and the super duper Melody Makers. You helped in this journey. Happy that I've brought some pride to your father's legacy."

Bounty Killer was also honored with a Blue & Bougie Lifetime Achievement Award. DJ Roy of Irie Jam Radio accepted on his behalf since he cannot travel to the USA at this time.
