Brampton Pop Star Alessia Cara to Perform at Invictus Games
Hit singles, international performances, a spot co-hosting the MMVAs, and now opening for the Invictus Games - this Brampton songstress is on a roll.
The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 Organizing Committee has announced tickets are now available for the multi-sport event from September 23-30, 2017.
The lineup for the opening ceremony for this historic event includes Sarah McLachlan, the Tenors, French-Canadian folk band La Bottine Souriante, Laura Wright, who will be joined on stage by the Canadian Military Wives Choir, and Brampton’s own Alessia Cara.
“The Invictus Games are far more than a seven-day sporting event; they’re a means of rehabilitative therapy for the participating wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans, and their families,” said Michael Burns, CEO of Invictus Games Toronto 2017. “The Games also allow the Canadian public to meet them and show their support for our military. We’ll get to watch some incredible sports competition, and see just what these fierce competitors can do.”
In 2015, Cara released her debut album Know-It-All featuring the singles “Wild Things,” “Scars To Your Beautiful” and “Here.”
Cara’s most recent recent single “Stay” with EDM producer Zedd has already hit the Billboard Top 3, making it Cara’s third Top 10 track of her career.
Now, she will be kicking off this patriotic event, in Toronto at the perfect time for Canada 150.
The event is known as a “healing experience” for the 550 competitors, their friends, and their families.
“Competing on home soil will give our country’s servicemen and women a chance to showcase their determination and skill in front of family, friends and an enthusiastic crowd,” said Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario. “By attending the Games, you can help inspire and encourage the Canadians who have defended us and our democratic values, and welcome courageous competitors from around the world.”
All sport tickets for the event are $25, and opening ceremony tickets start at $60. Tickets can be purchased here.
