TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Eight-time Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter JANN ARDEN has joined the all-star line-up at "It's Always Something", Canada's #1 Variety Show, headlined by comedian RUSSELL PETERS, to be held Saturday, November 19th at Toronto's Sony Centre in support of Gilda's Club Greater Toronto.
Arden returns to "It's Always Something" as one of Canada's most accomplished and celebrated artists, having recorded ten albums, forty singles and has been honoured as Canada's Female Artist of the Year in 1995 and 2001.
She joins Russell Peters, back for a ninth year as host of this unparalleled night of music and comedy. All artists are donating their time and talents to Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, a registered charity providing free social and emotional support programs for anyone touched by cancer - kids, teens and adults, along with their family and friends.
Arden and Peters are joined on November 19th by award-winning country superstar Johnny Reid; legendary singer-songwriter Andy Kim; the master of improvisational comedy, Gemini Award-winning Colin Mochrie; acclaimed R&B artist Sean Jones; and rising singer-songwriter Kayla Diamond, as well as a special surprise musical guest. And, as is its tradition, more talent will be soon announced as the show date nears, making "It's Always Something" one of the most unique and must-attend events of the year. An evening celebrating a true 'variety' of entertainment.
All proceeds from "It's Always Something" go to support Gilda's Club, Greater Toronto, named after famed Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner. In its 14 years, the show has raised more than $5 million to fulfill Gilda's wish that "no one should face cancer alone."
