Music for Fort McMurray

Unless you have been living under a rock, and even then, you have probably heard of the incredible devastation in the city of Fort McMurray in Northern Alberta. On May 4th a wild fire swept through the city, forcing over 90,000 people to evacuate immediately. These people are still to this day displaced, some with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Many don’t even know if they have a home to go back to. That’s when humanity stepped in. In the last week I have seen more compassion and generosity than I ever have in my life.
So what happens when you mix the one thing that consistently brings people together, with an unfortunate disaster, and people that just want to help? Pure, goosebumping magic in the form of music for charity that’s what. There are so many shows benefiting the citizens of Fort McMurray that I thought I’d create a list of the ones I can find, just for you. So get out there, enjoy some music and reach your helping hands out to our neighbours and help them get back on their feet. These are in no particular order so scroll down and find one, two, maybe even five near you!

From myself and the entire Canadian Beats team, Fort McMurray we stand with you! And our thoughts are with all of you.
Alberta Strong!
