Notre Home: Bilingual hip-hop anthem and provincial tour to foster a sense of belonging among young Quebecers

The Government of Quebec is contributing $20,000 to this innovative approach towards building bridges between French and English-speaking Quebecers.

MONTREAL, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Over the next few months, Montreal singer-songwriter David Hodges will be touring the province to meet young people and promote bridge building between French- and English-speaking Quebecers through his song Notre Home.

Written by David Hodges and performed by The Honest Family, a collective of Montreal artists fusing hip-hop, rock and soul, Notre Home nurtures Quebec's social fabric by conveying themes of engagement, leadership, as well as cultural and linguistic identity.

"When QCGN approached me in February 2012 to compose and perform the song, I was immediately taken by the social aspect of the project," enthused David Hodges. "I believe that the younger generation, whatever their origins, are ready to move on to other things and invest in their future."
