Malala Yousafzai Becomes Honourary Canadian

Malala Yousafzai has a message for Canadian kids: Don’t wait, to make a difference. Just because you’re young doesn’t mean you can’t be a leader.
Yousafzai is an activist for children’s rights, and particularly the right for girls to get an education.
In this case, “activist” means that she tries to get that message out, no matter how difficult that may be for her.

Update On Trump

He hasn’t even officially taken the job yet, but already Trump has been involved in a series of bizarre incidents unlike any other president. Trump will be “inaugurated” (officially given the job) on January 20. Normally, a presidential inauguration is a big celebration with lots of celebrities and high-profile musical acts performing. For instance, when US President Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder were among the performers.

Super Soul Sister, Sharon Jones Remembered Lovingly By Fans, Friends, and Family

Measuring at just about 5 feet tall, Sharon Jones was no ordinary giant. Sharon Jones was born in Augusta, Georgia, USA, the same city as one of her musical idols, James Brown. However, at a young age, Jones and her family moved to New York City. Growing up in Brooklyn, Jones developed her love of singing while performing in her church’s gospel choir. A passionate performer, Jones played countless shows each year, all over the world, with jaw-dropping energy and talent.

This Summer, Canada Had A Sing-A-Long

Recently, people across Canada came together in a unique and emotional musical experience.

Canadians said thank-you and good-bye to the iconic rock band, The Tragically Hip.

Many Canadians have enjoyed the unique Canadian sound of the band for many years. In fact, some people say the band plays “the soundtrack of Canada” and the “music that is in Canadians’ hearts.” Of course, not every Canadian enjoys the music of The Hip, as they’re known, but a great many do.
