First and foremost CaRiMi would like to take this opportunity to thank our fans. You guys have stood by us for 14 years and you are still standing with us. The flood of texts, calls and messages the group has received is great and we thank you for that.
Today, we would like to announce that CaRiMi is still standing and will continue to perform with MikaBen as its lead singer for now. We all know Michael Benjamin aka MikaBen has been with CaRiMi since the beginning, traveling, producing and collaborating together for years and we are confident that MikaBen is the perfect person to step in and perform all of our upcoming shows.
CaRiMi is so appreciative of the display of love from all our fans and we can’t wait to see you guys at our upcoming shows.
