Tenors aid cause

The Tenors join forces with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America to launch a new single titled I Thank You.

The Tenors, the JUNO Award-winning Canadian vocal group, have joined forces with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America to launch a new single titled I Thank You. The song, which also commemorates the 100th anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, is now available for download worldwide through all retailers, with proceeds contributed to assist in the ongoing development and support of mentoring services to children and young people.

Conceived by Kenny Munshaw and co-written with The Tenors and Marc Jordan, I Thank You speaks to the impact that caring mentors play in the lives of young people. The song was recorded by The Tenors and Big Brothers Big Sisters spokesperson Laura Kaeppeler, who was crowned Miss America 2012.

“We are delighted to benefit from the talent of people like The Tenors and Laura Kaeppeler and know that their music will bring the cause of mentoring to millions of people in an entirely new way,” said Bruce MacDonald, President & CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada. “This song reflects the experiences of so many young people — having seen their own lives positively impacted and wanting to find a way to express their appreciation.”

In a joint statement, The Tenors and Kaeppeler said, “We are honoured to be associated with a cause that has benefitted so many children and youth and hope that our efforts to bring attention and raise funds will result in a greater number of children receiving support.”

The Tenors and Kaeppeler have waived fees.

I thank you is not the first benefit the quartet of Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira, Fraser Walters and Port McNeill’s Clifton Murray have been involved with. The Tenors have performed benefit concerts for the AIDS-ravaged region of Bulembu, Swaziland since 2010, and performed this summer with the Bulembu Choir.

On Dec. 2 the Tenors will make their lone B.C. appearance when they play the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver. For tickets and other info, visit www.tenorsmusic.com.
