Altton Ellis-Godfather of RockSteady
Alton Neamiah Ellis, 63, has been in a hospital for weeks now undergoing Cancer Treatment. The Jamaican Observer reports that his nephew, Owen "Blacka. Ellis states,"His kids and wife were being vigil at his bedside," Ellis, know for such tunes as, Cry Tough, Can't Stand It, All My Tears Come Rolling, Tumbling Tears, Can't Stop Now, and Girl I've Got A Date.
I grew up with my parents and Auntie playing these tunes. Please keep him in our prayers.
