Good Reggae! The Children of Zion are: the Magdalen gang (Bardowell, Cordola, and Wright) along with Griffin on Keyboards, Sandra Stephens on backing vocals, Joel Taylor on drums and various horn players including Tony Guerrero. Bardowell's vocals are amazing! You would think he was born and raised in Jamaica!
