Cherine has been focusing her attention on writing music and collaborating with industry giants like Sly and Robbie, David Norland (Madonna, Dallas Austin), JeekyMan (Lil Kim), as well as prominent Jamaican producer Christopher Birch (Shaggy). She collaborated on remixes with Wyclef Jean and ex-Beatle member Paul McCartney. Reggae and urban radio stations have already fallen for the sweet voice spilling from their systems courtesy of her debut hit single “Good Love”. Cherine quickly followed “Good Love” with a lover’s rock duet with Chuck Fender which quickly topped both the singles and the video charts in Jamaica. Cherine’s latest release, “Kingston State of Mind”, provides her perspective on the realities of the environment in Kingston and illustrates the songwriting depth that lies in this young artist. Cherine also took on the challenge of directing the music video for “Kingston State of Mind.
Born in Rockfort in East Kingston, Jamaica, her parents Derryck & Barbara Anderson kept Cherine and her two older sisters in Sunday school and any other church activity that would keep them off the unstable streets. It was in church that her musical talent was discovered. At the age of 12, she became a touring member of Ashe Performing Arts Ensemble, and received professional training in dance, music and theatre. In 2003, Cherine combined her two loves, singing and acting, starring in the film One Love. Her voice lent two heartfelt songs to the film’s soundtrack, and her acting talent earned her the MTV2/Urbanworld Film Festival Award for best actress in a feature film.
In August, 2007, Cherine took to the road with Sly and Robbie & the Taxi Gang; not as an opening act, but as the featured vocalist on the 15 date tour.
