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

So great to reunite with Angela Keen! Tonight, I had an honor to volunteer my time at Shriner's Hospital 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 meet with clients in the coming weeks to discuss potential tours, endeavors, performances, projects, and what not.

First Inaugural Rock The School Bells Hawaii Conference at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Campus.
B-girl Yoda and I choreographed with students from Kalaukaua Middle and Farrington High School the First Inaugural Rock The School Bells Hawaii Conference Student Showcase Finale at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Campus Center. Students shared that they really enjoyed how interactive my combined workshop with B-girl Yoda was.. Yoda taught the foundation for breakdancing/b-girling/b-boying dance moves while I taught the foundation for beatboxing and popping slides and glides.

Big mahalo goes out to Freelance Brand, b-girl Yoda, UH Manoa, Diverse Art Center, Rock the School Bells, and all the students and teachers.

This weekend b-girl Yoda invited me to break down the foundation and history of the hip hop element of beatboxing and its relevance to the culture of hip hop in this workshop for the First Inaugural Rock The School Bells Hawaii Conference at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Students have shared that they enjoyed how interactive our combined workshop with b-girl Yoda and I at the Rock the School Bells Hawaii Conference was. B-girl Yoda also invited me to speak at her UH Manoa Hip Hop Literature Class last semester.

I want to thank Freelance Brand, b-girl Yoda, East-3, UH Manoa, Rock the School Bells, Diverse Art Center, and all of the students and teachers.

This weekend b-girl Yoda invited me to co-teach the dance and breakdancing workshop for the First Inaugural Rock the School Bells Hawaii at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. During spring semester, b-girl Yoda invited me to guest speak at her UH Manoa Hip Hop Literature class. This routine combines beatboxing (music with the voice) and dance to perform Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. This was demonstrated for students of Dole Middle School, Kalaukaua Middle School and Farrington High School.

These students then took what they learned from b-girl Yoda and myself and they used it for their student showcase at the Rock the School Bells Hawaii Finale. I want to thank g-girl Yoda, Freelance Brand, East-3, UH Manoa, Rock the School Bells, Diverse Art Center, all of the teachers and students.
