Biography

Lorna Bennett had dreams from an early age of becoming a singing star. Her brother Donovan, now a practicing Medical Doctor and the father of top producer Don Corleon Vendetta Bennett was an avid music collector and exposed Lorna to various types of music. In about 1970, 18 year old Lorna while in Sixth form at Excelsior High School became the female singer along with her sister Kay in the Bare Essantials Band. In 1971, her brother Kenneth Toney Bennett then gave her a Dusty Springfield Ballad titled Breakfast in Bed. Lorna took the record to Geoffrey Chung who gave the song a reggae arrangement and the song became a number one on the charts in Jamaica and stayed there for 6 weeks. Lorna then went to Law School at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus in Jamaica and while there released songs including Letter from Miami, Chapel of Love, Run Johnny Run, Stay with You Awhile, Dancing to my Own Heartbeat, and an album titled This is Lorna. Since 1980 she has been practising Law in Saint Elizabeth, Jamaica. Lorna has 2 children, Oje and Leann. Oje is a DJ who calls himself Protoje. (www.protoje.com and www.myspace.com/protoje). Leann is studying Digital Media Production at the Arts Institute of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. In 2001, Lorna felt the urge to return to music. This led to her performing at Heineken Star Time and shows in Florida and England. She has since completed several recordings for Sly and Robbie, Bobby Digital, Ajang Music Production, Dalton Browne and LLoyd Stanbury.
