SCENE & HEARD: Highlights from Red Stripe Big Vibes, the Cherine Experience, Miss World finale, and more

THE GRACES: Dec. 19, China. Saturday’s glitzy Miss World coronation in Sanya, China, drew a global audience of millions, who tuned in to see gorgeous Miss Spain walk away with the title after a closely contested battle royale climaxed, with Top 5 spots going to Jamaica’s Dr. Sanneta Myrie and the ambassadors representing Lebanon, Russia, and Indonesia. Jamaicans across the planet joined PM Portia Simpson Miller in congratulating Myrie on her epic achievement. Taking to social media to thank everyone for the support, Myrie wrote, “While I may not have won the title, my heart is still smiling.” (Photo: Myrie/Facebook)

REACHING OUT: Dec. 19, St. Catherine. Ever the dapper gent on an off the stage, veteran crooner Sanchez put in a crowd-pleasing performance at Rock the Soul Live, which attracted a hefty turnout to the Portmore-based Famous nightclub on Saturday. Reggae icon Half Pint also shared the bill. The event was produced by popular disc jock and show promoter Richie Dee Martin, pictured at inset with Sanchez. (Photo: Live Stush)

DREAM TEAM: Dec. 18, Kingston. The sprawling Red Stripe Oval provided the setting for Friday night’s Red Stripe Big Vibes bash, which featured performances by dancehall heavyweights Bounty Killer and Cham, seen here thrilling the enormous crowd with selections from their vast catalogues.

GRRL POWER: Dec. 18, St. Andrew. Cherine’s fans got more than their money’s worth when they flocked to Argyle Road’s Redbones Blues Café on Friday night to witness The Cherine Experience, a bombastic blend of live music, candid reflections, fun interaction with concertgoers (especially the lovers in the house) and artistic experimentation. A swell time was had by all. (Photo: Cherine/Facebook)

MAKING AN ENTRANCE: Dec. 10, United Kingdom. One of the music world’s biggest surprises of 2015, Jamaican chart-topper Omi makes his own fashion statement on the red carpet, as he makes his entrance at the BBC Music Awards, at the Genting Arena in Birmingham recently. Deservedly one of TALLAWAH’s Men of the Year honorees, the reggae-pop rising star made his major-label solo-album debut in October with Me 4 U, which spawned the hits “Hula Hoop” and fan favourite “Cheerleader” (the Felix Jaehn remix).
