Arijah Harrigan has a foundation named after her because she was born special. Her family created a non-profit foundation in her namesake and bearing her brother’s handprint in order to bring hope and the promise of a brighter future for Arijah and children like her. Founded in 2006 the Arijah Children’s Foundation is a non-profit fundraising organization for the Blossom Centre where Anguilla’s children with special needs receive education and therapies to help them learn how to walk and talk and gives hope for a brighter future.

Popcaan “Love Yuh Bad” OFFICIAL VIDEO (Produced by Dre Skull)

Popcaan “Love Yuh Bad” OFFICIAL VIDEO (Produced by Dre Skull)

“Where We Come From” is the debut album from Jamaican superstar Popcaan. Executive produced by Dre Skull and featuring productions from Dre Skull, Dubbel Dutch, Jamie Roberts, Anju Blaxx and Adde Instrumentals, Popcaan’s first full length offering sees his signature melodies and uplifting tones on thirteen original tracks. As musicologist Wayne Marshall writes in his essay on the album:

“Where We Come From” gives voice, as the best reggae does, to the contradictions of life in a society rife with inequities and yet so rich. Whether odes to the ghetto or the good life, Popcaan’s lyrics bring realist portraits and utopian visions into dynamic tension. Songs about struggle and sex and happiness occupy the same space because they do. And whatever the topic, Popcaan’s infectious positivity comes through.

Anita Antoinette Top 10

Anita Antoinette to The Voice Top 10 following ‘Redemption Song’ rendition

Anita Antoinette Top 10All the talk this past week centered around why Jamaican-born singer, Anita Antoinette has not received much buzz in her native country during her run on The Voice. That may soon change as she continues to surge on the American talent show after being voted into the Top 10 Tuesday night following her performance of Bob Marley’s Redemption Song 24 hours earlier.

Antoinette received the second most votes of any competitor among the Top 12 coming into the results show, only trailing Team Adam’s Matt McAndrew. Her latest success validates talk surrounding her, from judges and viewers alike, as one of the favourites to take this year’s crown.

 Having wowed onlookers with her performance of Meghan Trainor’s All About The Bass last week, Antoinette went back to her proverbial break and butter by going back to Reggae for her Top 12 set. Pulling a play from the Tessanne Chin playbook, Antoinette did a rendition of Rendition Song amidst a crowd filled with lights to help set up the ambience.

Unlike Chin, who turned up the decibels with sensational high note after high note with her version of the song’s chorus, Antoinette kept it low, but equally managed to ‘ride di riddim,’ as she showed some of the same vocal range and ability to draw in her audience that has been consistent since the blind auditions.

Her coach, Gwen Stefani was particularly moved, saying, “It was authentic, it was beautiful, and it was true,” she said. “I just feel blessed to be a part of it.” Fellow coach, Adam Levine, who coached Chin to victory on the show late last year, called her an ‘ambassador’ of Jamaica and credited her talent and ability to parlay Marley’s message with clarity.

The voters certainly agreed and helped her advance in the first segment of Tuesday’s show; a show in which she also performed alongside her Team Gwen colleagues and coach Stefani.

 Antoinette’s journey continues next Monday when the Top 10 will be back in action.

New Artist Spotlight : Micha Ciselle (@michaciselle) – Lover’s Leap

micha

Jamaican-born artist, Micha Ciselle is gearing up to release her freshman EP this summer. The EP is called Lover’s Leap and the four-song compilation celebrates taking chances and Love — a term the songstress often uses as a metaphor for music. Mixed and Mastered by one of Jamaica’s most recognized engineers, Rohan Dwyer, Lover’s Leap will be the first official musical statement for this Island beauty. Half Trinidadian, half Jamaican, the LA-based singer ingeniously fuses the music of her oots with Pop and electronic music. A singer/songwriter at heart, Micha Ciselle wrote the lyrics for this project, as well as the music for two of the four tracks – “Ready for Love,” and “Fallin’”– which Dwyer then brought to life, enlisting the talents of some of Jamaica’s finest musicians. Lover’s Leap strongly reflects her dual nationality, and listeners can look forward to hearing prominent dancehall and reggae influences, soca references, and a distinct Pop flavor. The EP showcases her soulful vocals and intricate background vocal arrangements – a trademark she has become known for.
The title of the EP was inspired by the singer’s personal experience with music. Micha Ciselle
took a chance in 2010 and moved to California after being awarded LA College of Music’s most prestigious scholarship, where she was mentored by artists such as Dorian Holley (Michael Jackson, American Idol) and Tierney Sutton (multiple Grammy Award nominee). Since taking this leap of faith, Micha Ciselle has embarked on a steady journey, establishing herslef in the music industry. In 2011 she was invited to a private audition for The Voice where she was one of the few to progress in the audition rounds. In 2012 she contributed one of the top performing tracks on the compilation album – Absinthe. Produced by Jamaican outfit, Jus Eazy Productions, who have worked with artists such as Ky-mani Marley and Busy Signal, Absinthe also includes selections from Internationally acclaimed Jamaican group, Voicemail among others. In 2013 she collaborated with the TV/music producer of 3Gfilms, LA to create the single “Beautiful”. Micha Ciselle has also graced many stages in LA including The House of Blues, The Mint, Whiskey A Go Go and festivals such as David Arquette’s Piece Fest – the first festival of it’s kind for the actor. Lover’s Leap is a long-anticipated labor of love for Micha Ciselle and is the next logical progression in her musical forays.
