Sheryl Lee Ralph Thanks Fans for Prayers After Hurricane Beryl Passes Through Jamaica

Sheryl Lee Ralph is feeling blessed after Hurricane Beryl passed through Jamaica.

The Abbott Elementary star took to X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday to share an update, after asking for prayers for the island nation ahead of the storm’s landfall. Ralph and her family are currently in Jamaica ahead of her son Etienne Maurice’s wedding on July 6.

“It looks like the hurricane Beryl has passed and is running like a Jamaican track star off to another race!” the actress wrote. “Thank you all for your good vibes and prayers. We did not get a direct hit and we are grateful but Carriacou needs help.”

The post also included a video of Ralph celebrating the “return of peace” to her home in Kingston, on the east coast of the island.

“We don’t have any lights, there is no power. But we have life,” she praised. “We got scrubbed by the eye of Beryl, but she is on her way, off somewhere else.”

The always-musical Emmy winner concluded her video by singing lyrics from Bob Marley‘s “One Love,” and keeping her fingers crossed for favorable conditions for the wedding.

“Oh, thank God,” she said. “I’m praying for sunshine on Saturday.”

Etienne — whom Ralph shares with her ex-husband, Eric Maurice — announced his engagement to ABC News journalist Stephanie Wash last July after two years of dating, and it’s no surprise that they chose to celebrate their nuptials in Jamaica.

Although Ralph was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, her mother was Ivy Ralph O.D., a beloved Jamaican fashion designer and the creator of the kariba suit. The actress frequently returns to her home in Jamaica, where she received an Honorary Order of Jamaica in 2022 for her “sterling contribution as an actress, cultural ambassador of Jamaica and for contribution to the international film industry.”
