Music For Medicine Recap (words by Brya Edwards)

If you have not heard of Music for Medicine yet, you are bound to hear about one of the hottest music events in New Jersey soon. Created by Millie Chantel, it is a platform that showcases great music and great vibes for a significant cause. All proceeds of the event go toward water and medicine in hospitals for struggling communities located in San Juan De La Maguana, Dominican Republic.

From the beginning, the event had an overall chill vibe. People were mingling, laughing, and dancing while they excitedly waited for the first artist. I felt right at home amongst genuinely cool people. To kick off the show, Millie took to the stage herself. She's an upcoming artist who holds this particular event very dear to her heart. The line up was stacked and following her came names like Shelly Ferrell, Jay Smallz, Ottohaze Petey X Kraze, Khennedy, K'la Rose, East Coast Dex, Chad Piff, and many more. Each artist brought their own uniqueness to the show. This made it super enjoyable to watch, even on a Sunday night. One of the most memorable moments would have to be when Chad Piff pulled out his electric guitar and graced the audience with eccentricity and flare.

East Coast Dex also captivated the crowd with his face initially being covered by a ski mask and his larger than life stage presence. K'la Rose also killed her performance with her raspy yet soothing vocals. Some WTM Radar artists also hit the Secret Society Loft stage with Kärma, Keyvauna Leshea, and Yoqueri respectively. With that being said, the turnout was a success and awe-inspring. For a small price you could too be apart of the next Music for Medicine event that stands for a deserving cause. Salute to Millie Chantel, Jersey Turnt Up ENT, and everyone that made
this happen.
