IMAJ is a multi-talented country singer/songwriter, visual artist, actress, and humanitarian. Born in Miami Beach, Fl. to a model mother and actor father – 80’s icon Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs of “Miami Vice”) - IMAJ has been called “The One To Watch” by Country Music Association’s Close Up Magazine.

The Cam Busch Endowed Arts for Health Lecture Series is part of CHI Memorial’s Arts Medicine Program which uses performing and visual arts to enhance healing. “This lecture series is designed to educate our community about the benefits of using different forms of art in healthcare,” said Cam Busch, local artist, nationally recognized art therapist and registered nurse. “The arts enhance healing and provide a vehicle for the expression of feelings and emotions.”
CHI Memorial’s Arts Medicine Program is a component in the region’s arts community. The following organizations join as Arts Partners for this event: ArtsBuild, AVA (Association for Visual Arts), Chattanooga Ballet, Hart Gallery, Sculpture Fields, and WTCI.
