On Saturday April 9th, KASPACE Toronto was filled with 120 guests setting a mood of a cool art vibe similar to what you would find and experience in New York galleries. It was a melting pot of fashion, good vibes and great music.
Recording Artist Ashley Allwood performed songs from her Mixtape Air Love Music Vol. 1 and treated us with a mash up of “I’ve got a woman (man)” by Ray Charles, and a duet with singer Alexis Houston singing “Ain’t No Sunshine” – bringing that old school jazzy flavour she has mixed with the electro-soul modern beats – a toast to real music done in a modern way. Ashley also sang a remarkable performances of “Nothing Compares to You” and “Revolution” which will both be on A.L.M. Vol.2.
Toronto dancer and choreographer Esie Mensah also took the stage to dance her signature “Afrofusion” on a deep tribal beat produced by Kevin Allwood. She showed us ways to move our bodies we honestly did not know existed. So good.
The night was all about bringing the “fun” back into Fundraising – in creating a new series of events at KASPACE that combine the elements of plant based foods, wellness, music, fashion, dance, art, design and ultimately – giving back.
