Twelve years after launching my band, the Toronto Revellers, I am proud to announce my own Section, Abella, under the theme Extinction: Love our Planet.

This Carnival Season is inherently special for me as I chose a theme that I care deeply about. I chose Extinction as a theme because I wanted to use Mas as a platform to bring awareness to the global crisis that we are facing.  ABELLA represents the countless endangered plants and flowers around the world that are needed to find cures for medicine to treat diseases like cancer. As plants become extinct, so does the chance to discover new medicines.

All net proceeds from Abella will go towards my foundation, Jamaal Magloire Foundation helping at – risk youth by giving them a chance to dream.
