So, last Sunday (Feb 28), I had the great honour and privilege of being asked to take part in a fundraising show in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. Apart from the cause being one dear to me (and most of us, I am sure), I was thrilled to be part of such a great group of artists! Many thanks to everyone involved.
The funny thing was that the event coincided with the Team Canada men’s hockey gold medal showdown with the USA! Well of course I am not so shallow as to cancel my appearance in order to watch a simple hockey game…BUT, I did dig out a really old 13″ TV from storage, and set it up backstage! HA! Fortunately Canada finally won in overtime (the US gave us a real run for our money)…and fortunately the game ended BEFORE my performance. I could only imagine how difficult it would have been to sneak the TV up on stage with me!
After all was said and sung, a good amount of money was raised and it seemed that a great time was had by all. And by the way, I wasn’t the only one who brought a TV…there were TWO other ones on elsewhere behind the scenes! What can we all say…except, “WE ARE CANADIAN”!!!
