There’s nothing new under the sun? Stunning young Jamaican-Canadian artist Jonathan Emile (also known as Jon E) forces listeners to question the truth of this ancient proverb.Already Making waves with songs: "Babylon Is Falling", "Lover/Fighter" & "Everything You Want", Emile pushes the level musically and intellectually while he bares his soul on stage&record as he shares his experiences of battling cancer, addresses current affairs and explores humanity. Covering styles of hip-hop, r and b/neo-soul and reggae, Jonathan Emile offers an honest gaze on reality without sacrificing the ‘hype noise’ that the new generation craves. The music is danceable but reflective, fresh but inline with the legacy of soul music.

Why should people, especially youth, vote?

The vote you cast today will have an impact on you for the rest of your life and on the world for centuries to come. A true democracy can not exist if the power does not rest with all its people. A simple vote can bring about just laws, responsible governments and necessary social programs. By not voting, you are giving a free pass to power-hungry-politicians, overzealous corporations and abusive institutions -- allowing the course of history to be maintained. There is no easier way to change the world than by voting.
