TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Multiple Grammy and Juno Award winner Nelly Furtado, iconic Canadian rock band Glass Tiger, and rising singing sensation Dylan Murray are the latest talent to join the star-studded line-up at "It's Always Something", Presented by The Keg Steakhouse & Bar, an evening of comedy, music and dance in support of Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, taking place one month today on Saturday, November 17th at The Sony Centre for The Performing Arts.
Furtado is one of Canada's most successful singers with 10 Juno Awards and 2 Grammy Awards to her credit, and her recently released album 'The Spirit Indestructible' has received rave reviews. Soon to celebrate their 30th anniversary as a band, Glass Tiger has won five Juno Awards for such classic hits as "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone') and "Someday". Toronto singer-songwriter Dylan Murray is quickly gaining fame for his unique blend of folk, rock and reggae and has appeared with Furtado in concert singing "Be OK".
These latest three additions join an already powerful line-up of stars all donating their talents to Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, a cancer care centre providing free social and emotional support programs for kids, teens and adults, helping them, and their families, live with a cancer diagnosis in their lives.
Back for a sixth year as host is Russell Peters, to be joined by previously announced talent such as Broadway star Louise Pitre, Gemini Award winning comedian Ron James, recent Juno Award nominee as 'Best New Artist', Lindi Ortega, and, to astound the audience, the internationally famous Cirque Sublime. As is tradition, more surprises and talent are always guaranteed as the show date nears, making "It's Always Something" one of the must-attend entertainment events of the year.
All proceeds from "It's Always Something" go to support Gilda's Club Greater Toronto, named after famed Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner. Over its 10 years, the show has raised close to four million dollars to fulfill Gilda's wish that "no one should face cancer alone."
