MOVERS AND SHAKERS: Songbird Cherine presents the Groove Campus Tour + Sprint king Usain Bolt ready to wow in Rio

IN THE FAST LANE: Fresh from his debut encounter with the Leader of the Free World in Kingston, the World's Fastest Man has landed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for this weekend's highly anticipated Mano a Mano track meet in at Copacabana Beach. On Sunday, April 19, the Jamaican sprint king will take part in an exhibition 100M race against two other competitors for the second year in a row. No word yet on who Bolt's opponents are, but the action promises to sizzle under the hot Brazilian sun, with fans gathering along the beachfront to get a good view of the spectacle. Upon landing in Brazil a couple of days ago, Bolt instantly became the centre of fan frenzy, typical of his international appearances, and no is no doubt currently enjoying the warm hospitality reserved for superstars of his ilk. Meanwhile, Brazil comes in the wake of Bolt's record-setting performance in the 200M at the UTech Classics on Saturday and precedes his upcoming races in Paris, New York and Beijing, China.

GROOVE THEORY: More than ever, Cherine Anderson is making it clear that there's no duet more powerful than the harmony between artistry and activism. Taking the lead among her industry peers yet again, the enterprising songstress and her team are about to kickstart the Groove Campus Tour, a much-welcomed new initiative aimed at connecting excellent musical bands with student-centred outreach projects, while promoting education, creativity, entertainment and social responsibility. It's a biannual tour that will commence fund-raising efforts for student-led projects through a series of live on-campus concerts. Further widening the reach, on Wednesday the artiste premiered the Cherine Anderson Groove Campus show on Bess 100FM, a programme that will be aired on the station this and every Wednesday between 5 and 6pm. For the Spring Edition of the Groove Campus Tour, a diverse batch of projects has already been confirmed, among them the Queen's School Breakfast Project, the Munro College Gears Up Cadets Project, the Holy Trinity Keep It Moving Fitness Project and a pool refurbishing project at the G.C. Foster College in St. Catherine.
