Dare To Care – Shaggy & Friends Benefit Concert

Abstract Square would like to take a moment to acknowledge a special event that is to take place in Jamaica. A benefit concert titled Shaggy & Friends,  is spear-headed by Grammy-winning artiste, Shaggy and his team from the Shaggy Foundation to raise funds for the Bustamante Children’s Hospital in Jamaica. This concert has been happening for a few years but each year it gets better and better and this year is even better than before.

The concert this year is slated for the 4th of January 2014 on the Lawns of the Jamaican House (Office of the Prime Minster) and will feature a slew of artistes who are all on #TeamShaggy4Kids! Head-liners are none other than host Shaggy, Season 5’s The Voice winner, Tessanne Chin and R&B star NeYo. Other artistes on the line-up include Matthew Schuler, Tarrus Riley, Konshens, Wayne Marshall,  Assassin, Chronixx, Sean Paul and so much more.

What makes this event so special is that all the money raised will go towards the hospital -specifically to renovate the cardiac wing of the hospital – and it is such a GREAT act of kindness. It’ll sure to be a good time but the best part is that the children will benefit the most because it always is about giving back to the kids. As they say One Ticket = One Life!!

Stay tuned for more updates on this wonderful venture!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa it’s the time of year where you come together with family and friends and look back at the year and how much you have accomplished.

It is the time when everyone gets together and laugh and eat and exchange gifts … it is the time when we give back to our communities or just do a simple good deed.

Whatever it is that you celebrate, we here at Abstract Square want to wish you Happy Holidays and may your season be filled with happiness!

This IS THE VOICE!

We here at Abstract Square are all MUSIC LOVERS and with that being said it is a MUST that our television sets are set to NBC every Monday and Tuesday for The Voice. Tonight was EXTRAORIDNARY as the #Top3 gave their all to have America vote for them as the winner of The Voice Season 5!

We got to see a re-do of the finalists audition performances with Tessanne Chin doing P!nk’s ‘Try’, Will Champlin doing Gavin DeGraw’s ‘Not Over You’ and Jacquie Lee belting Amy Whinehouses’ ‘Back To Black’.

Later on, each finalist got a chance to sing with their coach – something we’ve been waiting to see since the beginning of the show!! Tessanne and Adam Levine did ‘Let It Be’ by the Beatles, Jacquie singing ‘We Remain’ with Christina Aguilera and Will singing ‘Tiny Dancer ‘ with Adam.

The final performances for the night were the best! We won’t lie, these 3 KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING!

Miss Tessanne gave us some Whitney soul with ‘I Have Nothing’, which was a SPLENDID performance!

Will Champlin warmed our hearts with his ‘Everything I do, I do it for you’ dedication to his baby daughter while Jacquie Lee performed the Jennifer Hudson rendition of ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’.

We have always been a fan of this programme – the way it is produced, the backup singers, the live band, the overall setting and of course they have a wonderful host – Carson Daly, who does a great job! Looking forward to a Season 6!

We look forward to the finals tomorrow where the winner will be crowned! The Season 5 winner will go home with $100,000 recording contract with Universal Republic Records! How exciting!! So get to voting & remember to vote wisely!

Who do you think will win tomorrow night? We think we know who it will be!

Spread the Christmas Love

Christmas is a time for family, friends, love and so much more. We must admit it’s our favourite time of the year because it is filled with so much fun and laughter and people genuinely happy.

Then you must agree with us that the video we have posted below is probably the most adorable and heart-warming video we have seen this Christmas season. Airline company, WestJet decide to surprise some airline passengers with gifts that they had asked for without much thought to actually getting it but boy were they were in for a SURPRISE!

While waiting for their bags to arrive on their carousel … what came instead was … ok ok just watch and see for yourself!

P.S. Make it your mission to make at least ONE person’s day as special as WestJet Santa did … It’ll be worth it .. We promise.
