WE Day Vancouver 2015: The Recap October 22, 2015

Vancouver… THANK YOU. We saw 20,000 young, passionate shameless idealists fill the Rogers Arena and prove that west coast just might be the best coast!

From standout performances by artists like Colbie Caillat and Hedley to phenomenal speeches by world-class speakers including Astronaut Chris Hadfield and Academy Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin—this day was TOO GOOD.

Of course, major shout-out to all our youth speakers who are dominating the social good game right now. From inventing new technologies to ending bullying in your communities, YOU are the ultimate inspiration. PS Keep your eyes peeled for new WE THE YOUTH stories.

As expected, the energy was unreal and we are SO confident that today’s youth are going to do incredible things for our world.

We were privileged to share #WEDay #Vancouver Stage with JRDN. As soon as we stepped on that stage, the crowd gave us incredible cheer. The love from our Vancouver fans is real. As highlighted on the WE Day website “That time the Kenyan Boys Choir and JRDN combined musical forces for an EPIC performance.” – See more at: http://www.weday.com/2015/10/we-day-vancouver-2015-the-recap/#sthash.MsG7u1yr.dpuf

Author: Kenyan Boys Choir

The Boys Choir of Kenya aka Kenyan Boys Choir is a group of youth drawn from different high schools, colleges and universities within Kenya . Perhaps no other African youth choir dominated peer competition like the Kenyan Boys Choir. They’ve earned acclaim abroad as a disciplined youth program with a work ethic that parallels the King’s College Cambridge Choir and the Harlem Boys Choir of New York. Whether in concert or choral workshop a show by the Boys Choir of Kenya is simply an experience – the wide vocal range, diverse pan-African repertoire, mature artistry, drama, and, oh, the costumes! They perform a wide-ranging repertoire - from traditional Masaai and Samburu chants to contemporary pieces from around Africa, modern pop music and not forgetting the regular corpus of European and American choral repertoire with other classics from around the world – Bach, Mozart, Negro Spirituals, as well as Caribbean folk songs remain mainstay. In their home country Kenya , however, audiences throng to their concerts to hear renditions of songs and chants favorite among Kenya ’s 42 main ethnic groups. Other than performing at President Barrack Obama’s Inauguration, the Kenyan Boys Choir has had the privilege to hold concerts in various parts of the world including various states in the USA , China where they had a sold out concert in the famous Beijing Music festival and the United Kingdom. Proceeds from their performances go towards paying their tuition fees, as the choir believes in bettering the lives of Youth through Performing Arts!
