ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE HAYDAIN NEALE FAMILY TRUST
On Monday, December 7, 2009, Haydain Neale’s friends and peers will join on stage to celebrate the life and music of one of Canada’s most beloved artists. Haydain Neale’s legendary voice had been missing from the Canadian music scene since a serious motor accident in the summer of 2007, but his strength and perseverance during his recovery was moving and inspiring. Over the past two years, with the unwavering love and support of his wife Michaela, daughter Yasmin and numerous others, Neale finished production on the album he started almost 3 years ago. While privately battling cancer, Haydain went back into the studio with his fellow jacksoul band mates to complete the record.
On December 1, jacksoul will be releasing SOULmate, a collection of all new remarkable songs that tell of love, hope and endurance, set to his trademark unstoppable beats. With past hits like “Can’t Stop”, and “Still Believe in Love, jacksoul has been internationally heralded as an incredible artist that delivers soul stirring and intoxicating music.
Executive produced by Haydain and Michaela Neale, SOULmate is the fifth release from jacksoul, and is comprised of ten new tracks that showcase a powerful voice in R&B/Soul music, a potent mix of smooth vocals and tight beats, and showcases the simplicity of brilliant songwriting.
All proceeds from the sale of SOULmate will go to the Haydain Neale Family Trust.

Get ready to Inspire
Join Gotoaparty.com, AstraZeneca, and Harmony Movement at the 4th Annual AroniAwards Gala on Sunday November 29th, 2009. Be inspired as we celebrate the 2009 recipients of the AroniIMAGE Awards and the AroniAWARDS Education Bursaries. The AroniAwards Gala launched in 2006 is named after Aron Haile, and honours those individuals who have contributed positively to the community, and ‘inspire’ others to reach for the stars.
The Aroni Awards Gala was created in honor of Aron Y. Haile as he was exemplary in creating opportunities for people in diverse backgrounds. Aron Y. Haile, an African Canadian who died in 2003, at the young age of 30, was an accomplished student, entrepreneur, software developer, event planner, theater arts enthusiast and adventurer. His willingness to mentor gave him an avenue to forge many meaningful relations while giving back to his community. Aron believed that you should help those with good character who are applying positive effort to further advance themselves forward despite the obstacles. In December, 2003 while on holidays from his role as a software developer at BMO, his short yet fulfilled life ended in a vehicular accident in Eritrea (East Africa.).
The 2009 AroniMAGE awards will be presented to Jermaine Bagnall (Media/Sports), Schools Without Borders (Organization), Big it Up (Entrepreneurship), Thando Hyman-Aman (Education), Mitzie Hunter (Community). The 2009 AroniAwards Education scholarships will be presented to Aman Y. Sultan, Troy Knights and Chante Barnwell.

A 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Drama Finalist and winner of the prestigious 2002/2003 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, this seminal play is an edgy and provocative examination of the complexities of inter-racial prejudice, centering around the relationship between Eugene, a light-skinned black man, and Alma, a dark-skinned black woman.
Yet Yellowman is much more than a story about race and prejudice. It’s a love story and a tale about families and the damage they inflict upon their members. Black or white, you will recognize the shades of gray.
