SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU, QC, June 26 /CNW Telbec/ - The Laurentian Bank
and the International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu are proud
to present the Quebec Breakfast Club Benefit Show on Friday, August 10. Guest
artists Mika, Champion et ses G-Strings, Eva Avila and Pascale Picard, will
perform on the site of the International Balloon Festival. All profits from
the event will be donated to the Quebec Breakfast Club.
In light of its new partnership and its privileged role as the main
sponsor with the International Balloon Festival, the Laurentian Bank felt
compelled to give back to the community with a tangible gesture. The Quebec
Breakfast Club Benefit Show came to life through the generous involvement of
volunteers from both the Bank and the International. Their dedication and
efforts are focused on the future of today's society, its children. The
concert found strong supporters of its cause with two Laurentian Bank's
partners, namely Western Union and Industrielle Alliance. Along with Unilever,
their financial contribution in support of this worthy cause make "Le Show"
come to life.
Artists Unite for a Good Cause
Mika, star singer of the hour, will sing his biggest hits from his album
"Life in Carbon Motion". The Lebanese singer will have you dancing to the
rhythms of his English pop music that features colorful and dynamic hits "Love
Today" and "Grace Kelly." Champion, the most popular DJ in the province since
the release of his album "Chill'Em All" will also be part of the show.
Together with his G-Strings, he will ignite the crowd and your dancing feet.
Winner of the 2006 edition of Canadian Idol, Eva Avila, will join the list of
the evening's guest artists. Riding the wave of her successful first album
"Somewhere Else," this young 19 year old from Gatineau promises to have
everyone dancing. Finally, the new talent on the block singer-songwriter
sensation Pascale Picard will share her songwriting with you. Discovered in
2004 on the Musique Plus show "Pourris de talent", this young artist will
perform the melodies from her first album, "Me, Myself and Us."
