KING Sounds says he's continuing to speak up for society's most vulnerable with the soon-to-be-released single, Child Abusers.

“I have to voice my opinion on what's going on; it's needed right now,” the reggae singer told Jamaica Observer recently.

The track was recorded at veteran producer Winston “Niney” Holness' Observer studio.

According to official statistics, nearly 50 children have been murdered in Jamaica since the start of the year. This is a 42 per cent hike over the corresponding period last year.

“I've always defended the children. I have a single, Give Children Love, which was taken from my previous album I Shall Sing. Give Children Love used to be an unofficial anthem of Child Month, until it faded out,” said King Sounds.

The St Elizabeth-born, British-based singer was one of several artistes on hand to support Levi Roots' performance at Redbones Blues Cafe in New Kingston recently.

King Sounds (given name Roy Plummer) migrated to the United Kingdom in 1964. He made his musical debut in 1975 with Rock and Roll Lullaby.

His well known tracks include Missing You, Greetings and I Shall Sing.
