MusiCounts is proud to recognize multiple JUNO and CCMA Award winning artist, Johnny Reid as our Artist of the Month for June. Johnny is a passionate advocate for MusiCounts, and believes all children should have access to music education. As Johnny once said, “what if Wayne’s Gretzky’s dad had never given him a hockey stick? ” – highlighting that if kids don’t have access to music education, they might never know the amazing possibilities that music can bring.
Johnny has joined MusiCounts at several schools across Canada for MusiCounts Band Aid Program celebrations where he helped surprise schools with their instrument grants, and inspire the next generation of creators. Johnny also sponsored the 2012 MusiCounts Teacher of the Year Award, which recognizes an exceptional music educator each year. Johnny has also lent his voice to MusiCounts’ fundraising initiatives, and we’re incredibly grateful for his ongoing support and advocacy. Thank you Johnny!
