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!

The worlds #1 beatboxer!

A super energetic performer and entertainer.

Though I've never met him, he appears to be a holistic individual who emphasizes on being healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. I believe this is what has driven him to achieve his goals and kept him running the race :)

Upbeat, both in personality and in art. A connecting force in the community and music circles. Fresh energy in the international beatboxing realm. Innovative niche-maker in Hawaiian entertainment. Christ-follower. Someone I have known for years and am glad to call friend. That's Jason Tom to me.

Jason Tom is living proof that dreams come true if you work for it! He is a mentor, an inspiration, and continues to be humble through all his achievements. He is a friend to all!

Some people tell you about their dreams. Jason Tom actively pursues it every day.

Jason (or “Spidermon” as I used to call him in Highschool) can be perceived as a bit shy on the surface. He is still the same kind and genuine person as before except now more well-known. He is ready to bust out his beatboxing talent anytime and anywhere and share his passion with anyone willingly to learn and listen.

He exudes a special type of charisma that you can’t help but to feel inspired in his presence. Because you can see the overflowing passion in his eyes while it also tugs at your soul. I know he attributes much of his success and opportunities to GOD, but he is a super hard worker who is constantly working to improve his craft and himself. Because he never settles for just good enough.

The most important thing (I believe), is that he has not forgotten he is human-- who lives and hurts just like the rest of us. But he is able to turn the negatives and use it as incentives for positive development.

If you ever have doubts in yourself, Jason is the living proof that anything is possible.

Jason Tom is my very talented friend...in my eyes and experience he is one of the world's best beat box entertainer and a master at his talent in rythms and beats and tones...very first time I saw and met him a few years ago at a event in Aloha Tower Honolulu, when i heard him I knew then he would be as good as he wants to be...keep it up my friend

Jason is very talented. He can sing, beatbox and draw!

Jason Tom is a pioneer of the art of human beatbox in Hawai. Artist, Educator, Creative Entrepeneur.

Jason is an amazing beatboxer who captures his audience with his talented array of beats. His desire is not to keep his talent, yet to inspire others to grow their ability to stardom. Generously gives his time and talents to delivery a positive message while he was volunteering for MUSIC WITH A MESSAGE for almost a decade reaching over 10,000 to 20,000 students each year high and middle schools.

Jason Tom is the local prodigy to rise from this little island called Hawaii to become a professional rapper and make it big. But not only that he is very kind and holy and praises Our holy father named Jesus

He is a very friendly and humble guy. He always convinced people to follow their dreams no matter how big or small their dreams are. Since I first saw him in 2006 , he has been my motivation to follow my dreams.

Jason Tom truely is a human beat box. Full of inspired talent in the realm of interpreted beats and sounds, he captivates audiences with his enthusiasm and love for beat boxing and brings people together from all walks of life to share his unique talent and skills in the art. Inspiring people to venture outside of thier comfort zone and to reach for the stars, Jason Tom encourages others to follow thier heart and passions, whatever it may be, in alignment with positivity.

Jason Tom is an aural shaman. In a band, nothing is more important than the rhythm, kept in alignment by the bass or drums. Jason Tom provides that in spades, grounding you in an immaculate surreal soundscape, and plays a perfect host as he establishes the background before he starts to slant the narrative via classy changes until you realize you've been led into a wormhole and have come out of it with extra Hip Hop genotypes that end up becoming phenotypical as you exude a little more street out of your pores as collateral damage from the Jason tom experience, which is what you wanted all along but never realized you did:)

Jason Tom is a professional beat boxer
And also a big inspiration to the youth of Hawaii and many other places
I've talked to him personally and I know that he's a very good person and he follows his dreams
He's full of motivation talent and love for music!
