Greetings to my on Line Family: As many of you may have noticed lots of things are starting to happen here at Arious Entertainment.  In an effort to continue to inform, entertain and expose culture and talent we have added Arious TV which is currently in it's infancy, you will see the growth over the next few months.

We started Arious TV like everything else, it was not really planned - it just happened, I guess it was a natural progression.  For the last 4 years we have been delivering our "What's Happening" e-mail to you complete with events listings, along with our weekly commentary which focuses on the community, the problems in our community, the people in our community and events and culture.  Now with Arious TV, not only can you read about these exciting events and information, you will be able to see and hear about it right on your own computer.  

Over the last 4 years I've witnessed a tremendous growth in the amount of people that utilized the Internet for information and entertainment.  We are trying our best to stay up to date with all the Internet has to offer.  Just like when the movie industry started over 100 years ago, it started with short clips called "Shorts", so we are following in that tradition.  Soon we will have streaming videos 24 hours a day and many different channels filled with exciting programming.  You will be able to watch this growth and maybe even be a part of it.

Currently, we have featured clips of some of the events we have attended over the last few months starting with the DC Caribbean Carnival, the Miami Carnival, the International Caribbean Music festival which took place during the weekend of Miami Carnival and which is one of my favorite clips, because many of you may have gathered my passion is Caribbean music, and this event certainly featured many of the Reggae and Soca artists that are currently "blowing up".  We also have music videos of some of my favorite groups in DC and of course a Tupac video featuring my sister Shana Mangatal. We also have weekly highlights of the Capital Star Competition taking place in the Nation's Capital (the first 2 weeks can be seen).

I am very excited about Arious TV and the communications it will provide for all.  Also, in an effort to stay current and communicate with you our on-line family I have finally created my own MySpace page. .  I had seen a lot of MySpace pages, and I have also heard some negative things about it in the media, but like anything new it will be abused.  However, after reviewing the MySpace site, I realized it really is a great way to network and communicate with people all around the world with the same interest as you.  Those who have a MySpace page, I invite you to check out mine, become a friend and you will be able to post messages and comments on my site.  We also intend to place our weekly e-mail on the blog section of our MySpace Page, so if for some reason you don't receive these weekly e-mails you can also check the MySpace page for the latest, in addition to our regular company site  Our Arious TV Video Clips will also be on the Video section of our MySpace site.  

Well, I look forward to meeting and learning about many of you through MySpace.  If you don't have a MySpace page, check it out and sign up for your own piece of cyber space...currently it's absolutely free. To those who have become my friend through MySpace thank you for the link!!!!

For the last 3 weeks I have been very consumed and getting very excited about the Capital Star Competition, which we have been attending on Tuesdays.  Susan has been one of the judges for the last 3 weeks and I'm really glad she is the judge and not me, because I don't know how I would be able to choose from all the exciting talent I've been exposed to in the Washington Area.  I've witnessed over 30 performers so far and they all have been great!!!!  So I am really looking forward to the next 7 weeks.  when Toni Samuel and her husband Stephen presented their idea for this competition to us, I was excited about it, but I couldn't comprehend just how exciting it would get.  This is one of the best talent experiences I've had in a long...long time.  They encouraged us to assist them with this great endeavor and we agreed, and it has been a wonderful decision.  I really see big things for the competition and the acts.  I'm sure we at Arious along with One Heart Charities, Inc. will be bringing this competition to your town in the very near future.  If you would like to take part in the Capital Star Competition, please scrolls down below for all the details.

The first 3 weeks of the competition took place at Zanzibar on the Waterfront and one thing I've noticed (which is a good thing), the amount of attendees has grown, now in an effort to expose the event to more people in the metropolitan area the event is moving to Northern Virginia for the next 3 weeks.  Every Tuesday beginning this Tuesday (November 7th) we will be at Oasis on the Occoquan in Woodbridge Virginia.  This is another great location on the Waterfront, just like Zanzibar.  So I hope to see many of you who enjoy great talent, or who would like to expose your talent at this event.  Check out the Video Clip of the First 2 weeks of competition currently playing on Arious TV, and the 3rd week of competition will be on Arious TV by Monday, November 6th. So log on and Check it out.

If anyone needs a live band for their event or Holiday Party, check Sam'O and he JFC Band.  They do a wide variety of tunes from oldies to current hits with a Caribbean flavor.  Check out Sam'O's video clip on Arious TV and please contact us if you like what you see with the details of your event at

Oh, I almost forgot this Saturday my good friend Kenley John of Shortmus Productions will be launching a new CD he has produced for his artist Patrick Glory, so he is having a big party to celebrate and showcase his new find.  I'm looking forward to it.  I've had the opportunity to hear parts of the CD which was quite good.  I've agreed to take a few video clips for Patrick's upcoming music video, so if you are in the Hyattsville area and would like to hear some reggae music or just be a part of the video, come on by.  It's a relaxed atmosphere, so you know it will be a party.  Check below for the details on this event or on our "Event's Page".

Thanks for the Support and Stay Tune!!!!

Highlights of One Heart Charities Capital Star Search Talent Competition 

by Susan Mangatal


The Capital Star Search Talent Competition was a big hit again for it’s third week - it's definitely getting better and better!!!!

I’m not sure how/where Ms. Samuel (owner of One Heart Charities, Inc.) get a hold of these talented folks...they all are so great.  This week it was nice to have among our guests, representatives from "Showtime at the Apollo" scouting for new talent. 

The competition itself blew me away this week, because of its diversity, but before I talk about this week’s diverse talent, let me highlight the winners, that Mr. Aubry McKitchen (President of Events Unlimited, Inc.), Mr. J. R. Fenwick (Guitarist, Writer, Producer, Author of an Audio book) and myself selected this week.  Actually we had somewhat of a difficult time judging these talented folks and after calculating our scores we came up with a tie for 1st place.  However, breaking the tie was not difficult, because the 1st place winner we chose Mr. Joe Chapter made it quite easy for us to make our decision.  This young man sang John Legend’s hit song “ So High” and did a great job.  Oh yes, I do love everything John Legend does, but for a moment there I forgot all about John, and it was all about Joe.  There were no flaws in his performance, he just sang beautifully, and indeed had me flying high with his smooth and cool demeanor.  Yes, he can definitely be a Star.  I look forward to his upcoming CD.

Check out the winners bio below

1st place Winner - Mr. Joe Chapter performed John Legend's "So High"

Mr. Joe Keith McGuire a/k/a Joe Chapter is one artist you will always remember when listening to this talented vocalist.  A native of Georgia with a wonderful family of siblings who support his musical gifts from day one.  Joe started singing at an early age in Junior High School, and he obtained the desire from watching his older brother’s band perform at family functions.  This talented artist has a smooth jazzical and R&B sound, and plays the keyboard.  His incredible singing talent has earned him recognition down south and around the metropolitan area.  Look out for Joe on Just Us Records label –

2nd Place Winner - Cheryl Gilbreath

Performed Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"

Born and raised in Southern CA, Cheryl Gilbreath has been singing since she was a child.  Her versatile soprano vocals can accommodate just about any musical genre from Sacred and Classical to R&B and Jazz.  Cheryl welcomes any invitation and every challenge to grow spiritually and musically.  While at Howard University, Cheryl's voice has developed over the years while singing 1st soprano soloist in the original Howard Gospel Choir, and currently the Rankin Memorial Chapel Choir with esteemed music director Arphelius Paul Gatling, III.   Cheryl is noted as the "Pure Voice" of Oxnard, CA, attributing her many outstanding community performances.  Her professional background is increasingly developing with various experiences including performing Harlem Blues for Spike Lee at Howard University, and singing Lift Every Voice and Sing at Howard's Homecoming Step Show with an audience of over 6000.  Cheryl has also performed for audiences including President William Clinton and Ms. Jessye Norman at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington DC.  Cheryl aims to continue performing for a wide variety of audiences.  "I want to share my gift with anyone and everyone who can listen, and I believe that singing just one genre of music would be limiting.  As long as the message is positive, I will definitely give my all."

3rd Place Winner - Kenneth Scott Performed Anthony Hamilton's "Charlene"

Kenneth Brooks has been singing since he was 3 years old.  His talent was nurtured by his grandfather, who also was a singer in a gospel quartet.  Kenneth has performed around the USA with various groups and as a solo artist, in a variety of venues, including the House of Blues in Louisiana.  His soulful first tenor voice is reminiscent of his influences, which include Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. 


Let me elaborate further on the diverse talent I mentioned above.  A Reggaeton Hip hop duo called “Bendicion” and “Miky Bad Boy”  performed a rap selection in Spanish and English, they were very energetic and exciting and they reminded me of the hit Reggaeton tunes being played on the local Latin radio station, and around the country on stations in Los Angeles, Arizona and Miami.  The 2nd Diverse performer was Mr. Bobby Hall who was certainly in the Halloween spirit, he delivered his rendition of Purple Rain in a Spider Man outfit, which was pretty interesting.  All the other acts were just outstanding but I especially enjoyed 2 male vocalists Mr. Darryl Johnson and Mr. Chris Pearson (Chris did Michael Jackson's “Lady of my life” acapella.)  Both were outstanding, and it's  unfortunate we just had to choose the 1st,  2nd and 3rd winners.

Please make it a date and come check out the wonderful talent here in Washington DC/Maryland and Virginia for the next 7 weeks.  As Todd informed you above, this week and for the following 2 weeks One Heart Charities will be hosting their Talent Contest in Virginia at Oasis on the Occoquan.

Anyone who think they can be the next capital star contact Toni Samuel for all the details 703-405-7061 or
