NextNext Hawaii Contest Wraps Up

November 2, 2016 at 04:37PM

Back in May of this year I was contacted directly through e-mail about NextNext Hawaii. An exciting new project, a music competition and charity event sponsored by McDonald's owner-operators of Hawaii. To discover "Sounds that Spark Change!" The contest began August 1st and wrapped up on October 31st. I chose the Ronald McDonald House Hawaii charity, because it's dear to my heart to help those who need it most, especially our children and families.

The NextNext Hawaii Team is currently verifying and tabulating all of the votes. I want to thank each and everyone who voted for me and or for your favorite musician, artist or band! We supported good talent and music, good food and all for a good cause. Over 40 contestants and the Top 5 generated approximately 52,715 votes to be verified. Incredible! What I also enjoyed was discovering talent I have not known of before even though many I've met, have worked with or have done shows with before.

​I personally want to thank McDonald's of Hawaii and NextNext Hawaii for their generosity, all of the contestants and charities, 93.9 The Beat's Sam and Ryan Show, DJ Bvby G and Ty, Kaimuki High School Band, Kamehameha Middle School, Freelance Brand, HiDeph, Innovative Sessions Team, IMN of Hawaii, Metro Newspaper, my family and friends, the community, the fans and supporters, voters, and many more!

There are soooooooo many others I could list! I LOVE to read!

Well, here are some of my favorite classics: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Lord of the Rings (series) by J.R.R. Tolkien. Some great non-fiction books about the dance culture I love include Foundation by Joseph Schloss, which is an excellent book about NYC B-boy/B-girl or breaking/breakdance culture, Can't Stop Won't Stop by Jeff Chang, which is a great historical analysis of American Hip Hop culture, and The Underground is Massive by Michelangelo Mathos, an amazing history of electronic dance music culture. Happy reading everyone :)

Enders Game, The Great Gatsby, Of Men and Mice, Maximum Ride. I need to read more books. I haven't read so long Bc I've been attached to the ones I've already read.

Jason You're amazing guy! Huge congrats from Poland!

Well, all these value calculator give an idea about a website and it's associated information so you don't have to visit many other website's to get all those stats information.

Jason definitely deserves an auditorium of his own. He done a lot promoting the arts(especially beat-boxing) and inspiring people like myself to enjoy and constantly try to perfect an art and have an unstoppable mindset.

Aye that's lit. Keep doing what you're doing and you're putting a positive influence to a lot people

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.
