Vancouver's Sing It Forward Charity Concert Returns with Shad, Yukon Blonde, Hey Ocean!
Published Dec 12, 2012Last holiday season, Vancouver's Sing It Forward charity concert gathered up some notable local acts for a show to benefit the city's St. James Music Academy. This year, the concert will be returning for a second instalment.
The gig will take place on January 10 at the Vogue Theatre. The artists on this year's bill are Shad, Yukon Blonde, Hey Ocean!, Aidan Knight, We Are the City and C.R. Avery. This acoustic evening is presented by a number of organizations including 102.7 The Peak and Vancouver Is Awesome.
St. James Music Academy aims to provide free music education to children from low-income homes in Vancouver. To help spread the word, the organizers have been sharing videos featuring performers from the upcoming show accompanied by kids from the academy. See some of those videos — including Hey Ocean! covering Annie Lennox's "Waling on Broken Glass" and Shad taking a violin lesson — below.
Tickets cost $25 and all proceeds from the event go to the charity. Get yours here.
