Mighty4 Arts Hawaii Foundation Fundraiser

June 24, 2010 at 02:02PM

For those who attended APEX (presented by Freelance Clothing & Mighty4) a while back they might've spotted this flyer or poster teaser:

This July 3rd fundraiser event is for the Mighty4 Arts Hawaii Foundation and it is dedicated in the memory of High Chief XL (Walter). Walter has touched many lives including mine and he was one of the first that I've met at the Mai Tai Bar of the Ala Moana Shopping Center when I first started out performing the beatbox back in 2004 and he encouraged me to keep it going with the beatbox. The last I saw Walter was not more than a few weeks before the APEX event when he was bouncing at Next Door for a Broadcast event. If you were at least somewhat part of the Hawaii nightlife then you probably had your ID checked by Walter at one …

Child of the 1980's and child of God, #JasonTom, Hawaiʻi's Human Beatbox, is a mathematician moonwalker who sings music with his voice. #jasontomblog

I love her. My niece loves to dance when I beatbox for her. She's adorable and she calls me, \
I venerate our US Veterans and those serving in our Armed Forces! When I received that call to visit and perform for and honor our American Veterans at US Vets Barber's Point Kapolei. No doubt, do I not just answer that call, I settle that call. I met an incredible veteran by the name of Charles with great focus and head on his shoulders and with words of edification and encouragement he and I prayed for one another. Thank you Nicole Lam, Prisma Dance, and to our great US Veterans. To those who served our country, I salute you great men and women for having served our great and beautiful nation called America. To those who are currently serving in our Armed Forces in the army, navy, air force, coastal guard, and marine corps, I too honor, venerate and I appreciate your service and I too salute you brave men and women.

This is just one of the reasons why I get out there to do what I do day in and day out. Night in and night out. I am stoked there is no clocking in and no clocking out. No complaints here in doing my line of work. I don't tire in my work, because I don't mind working what I love and working with excellent people. I love being able to answer the call, share these gifts, devote time and talent to uplift the young patients at Shriners Hospital for Children. This is bigger than my gift and bigger than me, myself and I. It's about helping and assisting and uplifting others. To be kind to one another, and to genuinely care for our neighbor, our family. It's one of the most rewarding experiences to see the many smiles and to hear the laughter of those patients. Thank you Nicole Lam, Prisma Dance, Angela Keen, and Shriners Hospital for Children!
So great to reunite with Angela Keen! Tonight, I had an honor to volunteer my time at Shriners Hospital for Children with Prisma Dance as we cheered the young patients there up. I beatboxed and danced for them and offered beatbox lessons. They rocked the microphone and all. They were incredible! I loved every moment, especially when one of the patients in his wheelchair rocked the beatboxing on my microphone and my dance buddy Henry danced to his beatboxing. That was something I had not seen in all 13 of my years performing live. It was rewarding to see their smiles and the patients enjoying himself and herself. All of the dancers did great too from ballet, jazz, acrobatics to hip hop, and our dance contest. I loved it all!

As for Angela Keen, growing up in Honolulu I watched her as a news anchor and I didn't think then that she'd one day interview me at the First Inaugural TEDx Honolulu Conference years back. She asked me great questions. She also knows my good friend Jody Kamisato and I told her he said, \
Spent quality time performing music, dance, and sharing words of edification, encouragement, honor, praise, desserts, and prayers with Prisma Dance to our brave and strong American veterans at US Vets in Barber's Point Kapolei last week. Here Hiro and I improvised on our viola and beatbox collaboration. We had blessed time.

I want to thank those of you who inbox'd me and inquired about my Hisessions shoot. My Hi Sessions episodes is in post production. I had a great time shooting with the Hi Sessions team. I just followed up with them and heard my episodes could launch December of this year or January of next year. People who have written shared with me that they can't wait and are buzzing about it right at this moment. Me too. Very exciting. Stay plugged in! I will keep you posted!
First Inaugural Rock The School Bells Hawaii Conference at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Campus. Dance, breakdance and beatbox workshop! What? Yes!

Other workshops included the dj and producer workshop, emcee and rap workshop, writing and aerosol canvas art workshop.
I am grateful and blessed to have an honor to have volunteered my time with Prisma Dance and to have performed for, converse with and pray for our brave and strong American veterans at US Vets in Barber's Point Kapolei last week. I am grateful to our American veterans for having served our great and beautiful nation.

2017 is wrapping up. What a fruitful year 2017 is. The biggest loss was when I lost my father on this Father's Day. I've honored my father's last wishes for what he wants and wanted me to fulfill in life. I am also working on another one of his final wish for me. My father didn't make it for his 85th birthday. There is not a day I don't think of my father or miss him. Father God has shown my earthly father at his best in my visions and dreams since his passing on multiple occasions that brought great comfort and peace.

Staying productive with the beatboxing....

I will perform for a hospital and high school reunion party next week. I am grateful to be booked 'til December 2018 as my work is far from done and I am always working on music with my voice called beatboxing. I will meet with clients in the coming weeks to discuss potential tours, endeavors, performances, projects, and what not.
