The Story – Following the official Montreal launch on August 29th, Cynthia Ballesteros who is RAW Montreal’s Showcase Director and Radio Host at ROCK-FM.CA, also became the Director of Events for Canada – Congrats!
Hosted by multi-artist, Malik Shaheed, also opened the official launch. An accomplished TV host, reporter, producer and celebrity interviewer; youth advocate; music recording artist and party/event promoter.
Fortunate, I had the moment to thank him personally, an inspiration for the youth community. During the past year, my daughter Megan had the opportunity to participate in his program Culture in Schools, Writing Music Workshop at Horizon High School. A positive impact for my daughter and myself. Follow Malik Shaheed and more information on the programs – http://malikshaheed.com/

Pleasure to see Thea Robinson again, along with new connections and interesting conversations about their individual talent and craft!
Much to absorb and gain when curiosity asks the questions! My passion is discovering artists’ history through the creation & early developments, their individual story.
Pleasure to meet Ve.Jay.Broyld from Rochester New York, Marc Bourcier & the Cuban car, Ebony Royal Singer/Songwriter, and featured pose to close the evening, Velma Candyass!
Got to try on a temporary tattoo from 514ink, sprayed by JED! Encourage to visit artist RJ at 514ink.com!
Live music in an artistic environment is awesome combination! Performed in various categories as well; Das Blankout delivered Rock&Roll, Perfect Strangers combined Pop/R&B/Rock, Aphtanan’s Reggae music, The Ria Reece Band influenced Rhythm & Blues & Madmoiselle embraced Pop with a cinematic flavor.
