Popular Dancehall singer Lady Saw whose real name is Marion Hall got saved on Monday, December 14 after she attended the funeral of late Jamaican artiste J Capri.
J Capri, born Jordan Phillips, was laid to rest in an emotional send off Monday at University Hospital of the West Indies (UWI) in Kingston.
23-year-old Capri succumbed to lung infection and accident injuries on December 4 after she was admitted at the facility following a fatal car crash in Barbican Square, Kingston which occurred on November 22.
Scores of Dancehall celebrities attended Capri’s funeral. Alaine, Christopher Martin, Romain Virgo and Cherine Anderson performed at the burial ceremony.
The most notable attendee, however, was Lady Saw who disclosed she would get baptized once Capri’s casket was laid down.
True to her revelation, Saw visited a man of clothe right after Capri’s funeral and was consecrated.
The 43-year-old artiste then took to her official Instagram page where she posted a video showing her getting baptized.
“I’m now washed of all my sins,” she wrote. “I have given my life to God fully and I’m ready to walk with Him and do His work.”
Saw says that God spoke to her while she was at Capri’s funeral.
“God spoke to me. He did so at J Capri service and finished it off in my house. I’m now a new servant of the Lord. All my Dancehall shows will be cancelled because God has called me to work for him now. Glory be to the most high God,” said the Heels On singer.
Lady Saw’s representatives confirmed to Jamaica’s Urban Islandz that the process of cancelling all her shows is underway.
“We already contacted all the promoters for her upcoming shows overseas and locally and instructed them about the new development,” said her rep.
Before acquiring the new status as a woman of faith, Lady Saw enjoyed popularity for her songs which include: Wave X, Chat to Mi Back, Man is the Least, among others.
