Spirit of Canada - Home for a Rest

$42,461 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 713 people in 7 months
On November 19, 2017 close to 50 of Canada’s most celebrated musicians gathered at the legendary Commodore Ballroom to help a dear friend-- John Mann, singer for Spirit of the West.

John has Early-onset Alzheimer's which demands incredible resources, and the musical community rallied for an amazing show of support in one unforgettable night of music and love.

A makeshift studio was assembled in the building to record this song on the spot as a memento of the gathering and to help raise funds for John's continuing care

This is for John.
