With COVID-19 still keeping Canadians at home, MusiCounts is offering music fans their Virtual Dance Party Vol II this Thursday, July 2 to help dance away the 2020 summertime blues.
This July 2, join MusiCounts for a night full of musical beats and fun-filled tunes in support of music programs for kids across Canada for their Virtual Dance Party Vol II. Headlining the event is JUNO Award-winning electro-pop singer-songwriter, Kiesza, who is guaranteed to make fans dance like nobody’s watching in the comfort of their own home. Up and coming Toronto rapper, COCANINA, will also join in on the fun
Same place, same cause, new artists. Stay tuned for special guests to be announced next week! All donations received from the event will go towards instruments required for children’s music programs that need them most.
Through their work with the JUNO Awards, MusicCounts promotes school music programs across Canada Since their inception in 1997, over 1,000 schools and community music programs have received funding to purchase new instruments, and almost 400 scholarships have been awarded to graduating students entering post-secondary music programs.
Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
