TOP 5 VOICES AGAINST POVERTY ANNOUNCED TODAY
When we partnered with United Way Alberta Capital Region and Hot 107 for the first ever My United Way Voice contest, we knew we were on to something special. It is the age-old story of the underdog, sharing their voice against poverty, highlighted through the universal power of music and melody.  We hoped to tap into the plethora of talent we knew existed in the region, however, the number and quality of the submissions we received surpassed any of our expectations by a long shot. We had a great problem on our hands: how on earth do we whittle this down to our Top 5?

By following the careful criteria, our selection committee successfully got through the very difficult and lengthy task of choosing, and finally agreeing upon just five finalists.  Now, the power is in the hands of the community.  It is all up to YOU. 


Vote! Vote! Vote!  And encourage others to vote! You can vote for your favourite artists once a day until contest polls close on January 19, 2015.  Don’t forget to share your favourites, using the hashtag #myUWvoice, and ask others to vote, too!  Then, the winner will be revealed at United Way’s Annual Red Tie Gala on March 5, 2015.

Congratulations to our Top 5 Finalists (in alphabetical order):
Emilie Louise, Julia Nicholson, Rayne, Rellik and Toxsic!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY FESTIVAL OF TREES!
Yes, it's snowing outside, and the roads are treacherous.  BUT, Christmas is near, and you can begin by celebrating the very special 30th Anniversary for Festival of Trees!  Once the Halloween decorations go down, COO Rowena Cui goes straight into Christmas crazy mode.  You can only imagine the joy over at the PlanIt Sound Inc. offices when we had the opportunity to work with Donna and the rest of the wonderful team at Festival of Trees on their anniversary music video! 

The "Make Your Season Bright" Music Video features the vocals of the oh-so-talented Olivia Wik, as well as the killer dance moves performed by the entire volunteer team.  When you remix a Christmas classic, get over 40 passionate volunteers into a warehouse and choreograph them into the shape of a huge Christmas tree, well boundless fun is about to ensue.  And it did.  Thank you so much to all the volunteers for working year-round, bringing Christmas to the greater Edmonton and area.  It was a pleasure and honour to work together on this project.

The fun Christmas festivities kicked off with the Gala Evening and "Make Your Season Bright" Music Video Premiere last Wednesday, Nov. 26, with events happening at the Shaw Conference Centre through to this Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014.  Be sure to bring the entire family down for some Christmas fun.
