Mother Nature has shown her undeniable force this summer with the devastating flooding in southern Alberta. The music community, in turn, is showing its undeniable force by coming together to raise money and awareness in support of all the people facing the destruction of their communities.
On Sunday, Aug. 4, CBC Television aired a concert to raise money for Alberta flood relief, with performances from some of the top artists in Canadian music. Called Halo High Water, you can watch the concert stream here via the CBC Player.
Beloved musician and entertainer Tom Jackson called together some of his close musical friends for the telethon, including Paul Brandt, Dean Brody, Susan Aglukark, George Canyon, Jim Cuddy, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Brett Kissel and more.
Donations will go toward the Calgary Foundation's Flood Rebuilding Fund, for longterm building and recovery efforts with a focus on rebuilding neighbourhoods and public spaces, addressing mental health concerns and bridging the gap in funding shortfalls.
Donate online at The Calgary Foundation.
CBC Television, CBC.ca and CBC Music are proud to join in the celebration of community support for our southern Alberta neighbours.
