Mr. Lopez says Tenelle will also be visiting local schools, and hospitals in the Solomon Islands during her short visit and hopefully be able to record music with local artists.
“Tenelle recently has been on tour in the pacific islands for the last three months, she has performed sold-out shows in Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, and Hawaii. She flew home to California from Hawaii to visit family and will spend two days at home before departing back to the pacific for the final shows of her tour in the Solomon Islands then will take a break for a few months to record her new album.
“It’s an honor to have the chance to tour Grammy award nominee, billboard charting, and 2018 pacific music awards winner ‘Tenelle’ to the Solomon Islands which is also the first female reggae artist to tour the Solomon Islands in over 13 years.
“Blad P2A of DMP was on tour recently with Tenelle in Australia and were privileged to witness her deliver an amazing performance, we knew at the point that we needed to bring her to the Solomon Islands,” Lopez said.
