Prior to the September 19 concert, TEMPO will take its special anti-violence campaign Badness Outta Style to youth in the Nevis community.

It is fitting that Tempo returns to Nevis to celebrate St. Kitts-Nevis Independence, according to Tempo Founder Frederick Morton.

“This is a very special celebration for TEMPO as the channel gained its own independence this past year. And so, to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary by returning to Nevis, where TEMPO was launched to celebrate St. Kitts-Nevis Independence is simply divine. We, of course, thank the good Lord for giving us the gift of three years and we commit ourselves to His honor and glory through His channel TEMPO, and for all the blessings He continues to bestow on our beloved Caribbean: TEMPO Forever!”
