(On Monday, March 15 in NYC), (Jimmy) Cliff turned the Waldorf Astoria ballroom into a dancehall as he thrilled with 3 of his all time favorite hits. After graciously thanking the Museum organizers for the honor, Cliff got down to what truly makes him great as he kicked off his set with "You Can Get It If You Really Want" before moving on to the inspirational "Many Rivers To Cross."

As the guest, who shelled out $1200 for the event got to their feet and thunderous applause echoed in the ball room as Mr. Cliff pulled his final note of the song, he was joined by Haitian Grammy-singer Wyclef Jean.

Jean, who moments earlier he had inducted the man he called his inspiration and the only living reggae legend into the Hall Of Fame pulled out his guitar and join Cliff on a tune that catapulted the St. James native to worldwide fame.

The two rocked out on "The Harder They Come," as Jean urged all to get up. The audience needed little encouragement as they took to their feet and turned the formerly mundane event into a rocking party.
