Remembering Joey

Friends, musicians honor life of reggae artist


Hari Newmark grew up with Joey Fennel. They went to Woodland Junior High and Fayetteville High School together. He was there when "Joey" became "Joseph," a step toward "breaking away from being a kid to becoming a man," Newmark says. And he remembers when Fennel's stage name became "Joseph Israel," a reflection of both his music and his spirituality.
