When people say that music can make a difference, well that was proven true here in Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton. Thousands of music fans and artists descended on this stadium to help the great people who were affected by the massive forest fire in Fort McMurray. Festival headliners included Alberta’s every own Nickelback, Blue Rodeo and City and Color, who rocked the crowd straight into the night. “Fire Aid” raised over $2,000,000 for the united way of Fort McMurray to help the family who lost everything. Just being at this festival made me pretty proud to be a Canadian in this beautiful country of ours. You can still donate at www.fmunitedway.com and I would encourage you help out, I sure am!
Here are some photo highlights of the night, in no particular order.

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
