Vancouver, BC – Healing Using Music Foundation (HUM) is pleased to announce the Rise Again Concerts 2018, an intimate series of performances to bring the creative sounds of international singer and songwriter, Michael Amadi, to Canadian audiences via free and accessible live performances.
Beginning on January 29th at the Ronald McDonald House Charity, Amadi will take listeners on an inspiring musical journey. His soulful arrangements will be a combination of well-known classics and original works, including the debut of his new single – Rise Again – a piece written as a tribute and encouragement to those suffering through hard times.
“I believe that music really can help people, sometimes in a way that is hard to explain with words,” said Michael Amadi, “But when music is able to lift your spirit up and touch your soul, something magical happens and that is what amazes me.”
This vision for inspiring good lies at the heart of the partnership between HUM and Amadi. In addition to performing at the Ronald McDonald House, Michael will also be collaborating with HUM to share his music at other events around the city, including Cartems Donuterie Open Mic Night (January 30th) and the HUM Youth Music Night at Richmond City Centre Community Centre (February 1st).
