The 11th Annual Andy Kim Christmas Show took place, to a sold out crowd, at the Phoenix Concert Theatre last week. This star-studded event featured an impressive lineup of some of Canada’s most recognizable musicians including (listed in order of appearance); Beaches, Michele Pagliero, Tom Wilson, Tomi Swick, Honeymoon Suite, Michael & Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies), Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), Finger Eleven, Ron Sexsmith, The Trews, Barenaked Ladies, Kardinal Offishall and Tom Cochrane. A few other celebrities made a cameo appearance including Gordon Lightfoot and Mike Bullard.
For the third straight year Andy Kim and this group of talented musicians set out to raise money for The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and its Gifts of Light Program. With the help of a matched donation from the Slaight Family Foundation, they were successfully able to raise $100,000 for this worthy cause.

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
