A few posts ago, we made mention of a charity event that was to take place in Jamaica to raise funds for the Bustamante Children’s Hospital in Kingston.
Rumor has it that the event was ASTOUNDING and turns out those rumors were true. Abstract Square had a chance to be in attendance and let us tell you, it was indeed a well put together event … THE BEST PART WAS – It was all done for the kids.
Great energy … Great food …. Great performances … all towards ONE goal!

The show started promptly at 10: 00 pm on January 4th and the musical line-up had the crowd raving until 3 in the morning. As previously announced many top Jamaican performers were booked including event host Shaggy, Tessanne Chin (The Voice Season 5 winner), NeYo, Matthew Schuler (Top 6 Finalist from The Voice Season 5), Tarrus Riley, Konshens, Wayne Marshall, Assassin, Chronixx, Sean Paul and there were even surprise performances. Mr Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley stopped by as well as Jah Cure.
It really was a night to remember and even as the show lights went off, the event coordinators found ways that everyone could still donate to the cause (See image below)
I dare you to care and give back to the children; even the smallest amount will help. I implore you – this is a worthy cause and one that needs everyone’s full support.

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!
