Hope Rising! assembles international artists including Alicia Keys, Rufus Wainwright, K'naan, Harry Belafonte, and more to support the Stephen Lewis Foundation, an organization that has contributed more than $40 million to community-based organizations in Africa to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS. The artists are joined by hosts from Canadian broadcasting as well as a special performance from cast members of 'da Kink in My Hair. With an evening that spans Grammy-winning singing to dub poetry, audiences experience excitement paralleled only by finding a $20 bill in their winter coat.
Since 1960, the Sony Centre has served as Canada's largest soft-seat theatre space for an assortment of performances and shows. The centre recently opened after renovation and now provides patrons with restored wood, brass, and marble as well as new washrooms, upgraded seating and flooring, and complimentary hugs.
