If you though good music can be heard just in the downtown area, you would be wrong Toronto. A special event was hosted by a restaurant in the Weston and Steeles Rd. area. It is a place called Belleeny’s, and it was host to an up and coming company called YOWronto Musical Festival. They celebrated the women of YOWronto with a showcase of their talent.
There was the hostess MC, Baby G, along with a lot of talented singer and even a spoken word artist. There was also an inspirational video done by Alison Hinds and Tessane Chin.
The talented women who hit the stage that night included Elle Trema, Kandace KASH, Jay Harmony Ammoye, who happens to be a Juno nominee. There was Michelle Barker, Naomi Abiola, Tasha, and finally Michie Mee.
The sounds went from a fun pop flavor to Original awesomeness, onto a reggae goddess and a high priest of Hip Hop. They even through in James Brown’s, “It’s a mans mans mans world”. Well not that night, the women owned it all. After all was said and done it seemed everyone wanted to kick back and enjoy each other’s company. As they say with YOWronto, stay and fellowship the night away.
