THE SCOOP | Sistema Toronto Scarborough Choir Teams Up With Singer-Songwriter Roveena In New Video

By Michael Vincent on June 16, 2020

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.
