Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate women’s accomplishments as well as goals to do even better than before. In this article, I will focus on Women singers who have had an impact on the music world such as Aretha Franklin and Celine Dion.
November 26, 2017, I saw the show of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train which had musical guests Jonathan Roy, Emma Lee & Colin James.
It was a nice half hour show with lovely music setting the tone for the holiday season. My fave part was Jonathan Roy when he performed his first single Daniela Danmark. It’s a catchy tune that makes you want to dance. I heard about him last year.
It was also fun to discover Emma Lee & Colin James. I am discovering their music bit by bit and I am so excited to search for something new. They also gave amazing performances. I look forward to hearing the music of these 3 artists.
Happy Canada Day! Today Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. It’s also where many famous artists are from such as Shania Twain, Michael Buble and Drake.
The music is diverse, which is no surprise, as Canada does place diversity as its feature.
A year ago today, British singer David Bowie passed away in his home in New York. He had passed away two days after the release of his last album Blackstar. Although I am only familiar with some of his songs, I have understood the profound impact he had on the music industry. He was an artist who could can from one music genre to another. He even created a variety of alter egos such as Ziggy Stardust. He even challenged gender stereotypes with his alter egos.
He leaves behind an incredible legacy for the music. He influenced the music world since he release his singles Space Oddity in 1969, which was the beginning of an incredible career as an artist.
Bowie wasn’t only known as a singer, he was also a actor. He was known for films such as The Man Who Fell On Earth, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence and Labyrinth. The last film he did was in 2008 entitle August. I’ve only seen the film Labyrinth, which was interesting. The role of jareth the Goblin King was made for Bowie. I can’t imagine anyone else playing this iconic role.
My favourite songs from the late David Bowie are Space Oddity, Under Pressure, Heroes, Let’s Dance, Modern Love and Suffragette City.
Rest in Peace David Bowie. You will be forever missed

Frank Sinatra Jr passed away March 16, 2016 from a heart attack while on tour in Florida. He was 72. Sinatra Jr was known for honouring his late father Frank Sinatra’s music as well as his being kidnapped at 19.
He was under his father’s shadow for the most part. However, he did have a nice musical career overall. His legacy will live on. I know very little of his music, but I will pay my tribute through these
