A few weeks ago I was invited to an independent school in Mississauga for a talk and performance by Chantal Kreviazuk. Although I went for work, to write a feature for our education guide, I was quite excited to attend.
Back in 1997, when I was barely a teenager and Kreviazuk had yet to become a household name, she played my hometown of Thunder Bay. The show marked my first ever concert and although she was the opening act, it was her album I had on repeat following the show.
I will post my article soon, but for now I wanted to share a video and some pictures from the performance at Holy Name of Mary College School. My biggest highlight was the last song she played, a track off her debut record Under These Rocks and Stones. I was so glad a mom in the crowd asked her to play “Surrounded” and then even more excited when Kreviazuk agreed. Listening to her sing one of my favourite songs a meter away gave me goosebumps. It was nothing short of amazing in my books.
