Etana - I am not afraid

One of Jamaica's leading performers is Etana. Her name means the strong one. Her birth name is Shauna McKenzie. She migrated to the U.S.A. when she was 9 years old. her music career began when she dropped out of college to sign with Universal Records as a member of a group Gift. She eventually left because she was not comfortable with the sex symbol image of the group. She returned to Jamaica in 2002. Etana released her debut album "The Strong One" in 2008. She has toured U.S.A., Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
