MONTREAL, CANADA (Top40 Charts/ Sass Jordan Official Website) - War Child Canada's second annual Busking For Change, a day of great music on the streets of Toronto, will take place on Tuesday, September
29th, 2009. Celebrated musicians will be busking throughout the city at pre-determined locations in downtown Toronto. Money collected at each site, and through online donations, will support War Child.
Sass Jordan will be at First Canadian Place at noon for a 30 minute set. Jordan has made a living singing, performing, writing and recording music internationally for the past thirty years. Winner of Billboard's Best Female Rock Vocalist award, the bilingual Montrealer has toured and/or worked with many music heavyweights, including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Carlos Santana and Joe Cocker. Her latest CD, entitled From Dusk 'Til Dawn features songs and sounds that reflect the atmosphere of the late 70's Southern California scene. 'I started out singing in Westmount Park, with my friends and a couple of acoustic guitars ... passersby would stop and listen for a while, as we honed our skills in public', says Jordan. 'Naturally, this type of vocal harmony and melodic sensibility is now a staple in my repertoire, and one I had a blast revisiting on this current recording'.
Busking For Change will take place between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm on Tuesday, September 29th at major street corners and in busy downtown buildings. Students from across Canada will also busk for change at their schools and in their communities to support the cause.
