REGGAE’S CHANGING FACE

By News Americas Now Contributor

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. July 18, 2014: Reggae, the musical genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s, is back on the Hot 100 chart but the group singing the ‘irie’ vibe is hardly black or Jamaican.

Actually, the singers of the song that has jumped to #1 on the Hot 100, dislodging “Fancy” byIggy Azalea featuring Charli XCX, are White Canadians. That’s right. You read right!

United Nations Pageant seeks inner beauty to promote tourism, goodwill and cultural style.

United Nations Pageant seeks inner beauty to promote tourism, goodwill and cultural style.

Pageants typically focus on external beauty, glitz and glamour.  However, the United Nations Pageant hosted in Kingston, Jamaica seeks goodwill ambassadors.

The United Nations Pageant is an international event, dedicated to identifying and showcasing the best tourism and ambassadors of humanity. Contestants are scored on inner beauty or how they relate with others, and show support towards community service. Contestants from Africa, South America, India, the United States and the Caribbean converged from July 1st through the 6th, 2014. This was an opportunity for comradery, community service and cultural expression.

Leon Williams, the United Nations Pageant president, explained “Unknown to the contestants, we had judges socialize and mingle with them during the early days of the pageant.  The judges were revealed later on day three of the pageant and participated in activities with the contestants throughout the week. This provided opportunity to know each contestant personably. During this part of the process, a person can excel at the finals –but not get along with others; and this will hinder their chance to win. This opportunity offers more than a pageant title.  The winners become ambassadors who foster goodwill and help those less fortunate. Retrospectively, we also look at contributions each contestant has offered in their home community. Humanitarianism is a strong indicator of good character.
