Fort Lauderdale, Florida: In response to the unprecedented performance of Jamaica's Track & Field athletes at the 29th Olympics in Beijing, China, Highah Seekah has recorded a new song, Set The Goal Get The Gold, to commemorate their success.
There have been many 'tribute' songs from many Reggae and Dancehall artists since the 2008 Olympics concluded but Highah Seekah's is unique. The song not only revisits the historic and world-record setting Track & Field moments of the likes of Shelly-Ann Frasier, Usain 'lightning' Bolt and other members of the Jamaican team that took place in 'The Bird's Nest,' but also looks ahead to the future of Jamaica, urging that "with this new national pride and zeal, let it be good and lasting for real" and to "..Use this time, Jah bless and renew this time" to "improve financially, economically and all sorts..." Such are some of sentiments of the song.
