The National Heroes Song of Jamaica
Who wrote the Jamaica National Heroes Song?
ANSWER: June-02-2009 by Wellesley Gayle
Here is the song.
I don't know the author either, but will definitely do further research for you.
Update 6/11/09. Still no positive word Narisha, I went as far as to check with the National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) and they admitted they don't have a record of the author either, although they are aware of the song.
