MARANTO is a Jamaica-born singer, songwriter, producer, arranger and musician whose true-life story ascends from tragedy to glory – from a sudden fate of failing health including blindness by age 31 to an ultimately powerful and inspiring testimony to the world that he’ll share in musical and literary statements in his forthcoming “Faith Through the Fire” EP.

MARANTO who co-wrote/co-produced the Gold, Platinum and Diamond internationally certified Reggae Dance smash “Cheerleader,” (7.4 million certified units sold worldwide), which was recorded by Jamaican singer Omi, has recently partnered with the Diabetes Association of Atlanta to assist in diabetes screening at his concerts begining on November 18, 2018 at his album release concert in Atlanta. The free concert will be held at the Overcomes Christian Fellowship Church, located at 7373 Covington Highway in Lithonia, GA (a suburb of Atlanta). Physical copies of the project will be sold on-site.

“I decided to collaborate with the Atlanta Diabetes Association, seeing that November 14 is National Diabetes Day,” said Maranto. “I am doing this because I have been diabetic since I was 12 years old. It has been a contributing factor to my current stage of blindness..”

MARANTO will be announcing additional shows in Atlanta with his band. Fans can stay up-to-date on any upcoming tour dates by following MARANTO’s social media platforms.
