KINGSTON, Jamaica – Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, says her ministry will organise a service of thanksgiving for the life of the late Jamaican music pioneer Count Prince Miller.

Miller died in England on August 16.

“The thanksgiving service will be held at the Louise Bennett Garden Theatre in Kingston at a date to be announced, and will be open to members of the public who wish to pay their last respects to this patriot who has played such an important role in bringing our music and culture to the world,” Grange said in a release today.

Grange added that this was one of the commitments she gave to Miller when she visited him in hospital in London shortly before his passing.

.The culture minister said the Government was giving official support to Miller's family in the arrangements for the singer and actor's final farewell both in Jamaica and the United Kingdom.

The thanksgiving service in Jamaica will follow cremation and a service of celebration in the UK on Tuesday, September 4 2018 at the Holy Trinity Church, Prince Consort Road. The Jamaica High Commission in London will host a repast, Grange said.
