“A future generation of Olympians will benefit enormously from this collaboration with Roch Voisine, and we are grateful for his amazing talent and support of the Canadian Olympic Foundation,” said Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee. “As we head into the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, let us not forget the athletes that will be here at home, training tirelessly to be ready for Rio, PyeongChang and Tokyo. Initiatives like this are the only way that Canada will have continued success on the podium.”
Canadian superstar and JUNO Award winner, Roch Voisine will release My Very Best on February 11th, an incredible collection of his English hit songs over the past 25 years. The package will feature four new tracks including the first single “Living Out My Dreams,” a song specifically created for the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) as the official Anthem for 2014 Olympic Team competing in Sochi. Together with the Orchestre symphonique de Montreal and famous conductor Maestro Kent Nagano, “Living Out My Dreams” honours Canadian Olympians and their Olympic journey.
“It's been a fantastic 25 years and I've enjoyed working with great musicians, writers and producers. I felt the time was right to put together the songs that the fans enjoyed the most with a few new ones” quoted Roch Voisine.
A successful singer, songwriter, performer and philanthropist, Roch Voisine has sold 12 Million records worldwide over his career uniquely maintaining superstar profiles in both French and in English. Over the past 25 years, all of Roch Voisine’s English albums have achieved gold, platinum or multi-platinum status.
“Living Out My Dreams,” the first-time collaboration with the COC, sees Roch Voisine make a donation of the profits to the Canadian Olympic Foundation to help support emerging athletes.
“I am so proud the release of this new song will help support our next generation of Canadian athletes,” said Roch Voisine. “When Dean Landon, Anika Paris and I wrote this song, our goal was to help inspire our athletes. I know our donation will be invested in valuable programs, ensuring more of our young athletic talent will have the resources they need to achieve their Olympic goals.”
Orchestre symphonique de Montréal Music Director Kent Nagano stated: “I participated in this beautiful project called ‘Living Out My Dreams’ and I was very happy to do it to support our Canadian athletes and the Olympic Movement. Good luck!”
