It’s been a little while since I did a live performance of my own music so I’m really excited to end my year with a bang and perform in the 4th Annual Gift of Music Charity Event hosted by the amazingly talented Glenn Lewis (this man sings like Stevie Wonder! His voice is incredible) All of the proceeds from this show go towards MusiCounts which is a non-profit organization that helps to keep music education programs and instruments in schools. It’s all for an amazing cause and 100% of the money raised on the night of the show goes to MusiCounts . If you are in Toronto in December please come to the show, it’s full of a lot of talent and it’s all for a very good cause plus I’m going to be there! 🙂
