“Minister Pato Banton” is also a grammy nominated reggae legend that has recorded and toured the world with The English Beat, Steel Pulse, UB40 & STING! (to name just a few). Although his four-decade career has also earned him a place in the British Music Hall of Fame and a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award for his tireless community work to reduce gun crime,, his journey has increasingly transcended the music business into arenas of youth outreach, teaching in schools and colleges, writing new curriculum for children with learning disabilities and Global Spiritual Ministry.

Recently, Pato & his wife Antoinette Rootsdawtah were both presented with the prestigious Unity Earth “Keepers Of The Flame” Award, appointed as "Goodwill Ambassadors of the Golden Rule" by Ambassador Mussie of the United Religions Initiative and officially invited to join as members of the Evolutionary Leaders Circle, a project of the Source of Synergy Foundation. Now based in Southern California, he continues to record and tour the world extensively, conveying a positive & very spiritual message, while simultaneously serving as a Teacher, Counselor, Mentor & Minister “of the verb” to his Fans, Friends & Spiritual Family.”
