ON THE SCENE: Star sightings at Liguanea Art Festival, Third World in Concert, I Am Bolt premiere, and more

I GOT YOU BABE: Nov. 28, United Kingdom. Now that he's a bonafide movie star, The World's Fastest Man has been making lots of new friends. The premiere of his new documentary feature, I Am Bolt, drew a star-studded crowd to Odeon Leicester Square Cinemas in London's West End recently, bringing out the famous faces from the worlds of sports and entertainment, including Oscar-nominated actress Salma Hayek, who shared a moment with the Jamaican sprinting legend.

MESSAGE MUSIC: Dec. 1, Kingston. A group of local entertainers, including roots-reggae singer-songwriter Protoje, has joined forces with corporate heavyweights to launch #CrimeFreeChristmas, a musical campaign that features the artistes performing songs that will be aired in the media throughout the holiday season. Recently taped at the TV-J Studios, the campaign also features Tessanne Chin, Tarrus Riley, Tifa, Chronixx and Kevin Downswell. (Photo: Stush)

SHOW AND TELL: Dec. 1, Kingston. For World AIDS Day, the National Family Planning Board and the Sexual Health Agency Jamaica staged a well-supported health fair and road march in the capital. Informative safe-sex workshops and demonstrations occupied attendees, including this bunch of high-schoolers who were snapped paying keen attention. (Photo: Sleek)

IN THE MIX: Dec. 2, St. Andrew. This year's headliner of the Smile Jamaica Concert, held at the Bob Marley Museum on Saturday, Stephen Marley (seen here with a fan) was among the hundreds who stepped out to support Third World's concert at the Hope Zoo on the previous night. In other Marley news, older brother Ziggy has been nominated for Best Reggae Album (for his self-titled 2016 release) for next February's 59th Grammy Awards. (Photo: Skkan Media)

STEPPING OUT: Dec. 3, United Kingdom. Grammy winner Sean Paul is in the UK a lot these days. A few nights after catching the I Am Bolt premiere at the Odeon Leicester, the pop-dancehall hitmaker joined his peers, including the gorgeous Dua Lupa, on the red carpet for Capital's Jingle Bell with Coca-Cola bash in London.

ROSES ARE RED: Dec. 4, St. Andrew. With her fresh face and megawatt smile, songbird Cherine is a vision in tomato red at Sunday's Liguanea Art Festival, where she shared lens time with culture minister Olivia 'Babsy' Grange. For this year's 12th staging, the beloved one-day extravaganza brought together dozens of Jamaica's finest artists and artisans - and a sea of spending patrons - to the Lane Plaza.

WHERE THERE's 'HOPE': Dec. 5, United States. A lifelong supporter of worthy causes, entertainment legend Harry Belafonte and companion Pamela Frank were among the icons who put in appearances at the RFK Human Rights Ripple of Hope Awards, held in New York City on Monday night. Honorees Howard Schultz, Scott Minerd and Vice President Joe Biden were the toast of the ceremony. (Photo:
