Sri Lankan born artist Roveena started working with the Sistema Toronto Scarborough Choir in October 2019. The collaboration included workshops with the 100+ student choir aged 8-14 to rehearse her songs “Fearless” and “Fly”. The project was to be performed in a live performance online, but due to the COVID-19 crisis was reimagined with the choir performing from their homes in isolation.
“The song Fearless has such a wonderful and powerful message,” said Christie Gray, Executive Director of Sistema Toronto. “Our students have had a brilliant time working with the very talented Roveena this year, and we felt this video would be a great way to end this project while also spreading an important message in a time of uncertainty and change. We hope people will watch the video and feel a sense of inspiration.”
“It’s been a rewarding and life changing experience to work with Sistema Toronto. As a Recording Artist, I truly believe that empowering our youth through the music can truly enact social change,” said Roveena.
