TORONTO, ON – Today chart topping artist Johnny Reid released a moving new song, “People Like You” via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The song is a special tribute to the people of Nova Scotia after the devastating tragedy that hit their tight knit community earlier this month. Listen to the song HERE and watch the accompanying video HERE.
About the emotional tribute, Johnny shared, “When people we love are suddenly taken from us we are left with broken hearts full of unspoken words. I want the people of Nova Scotia to know my heart is with them, I want them to know they are not alone. I want to show them the same love, support and respect they’ve always shown me.”
To further help the people of Nova Scotia, one hundred percent of the proceeds from “People Like You” will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross’ “Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund.” A limited number of physical CDs of the single will be made available exclusively through Johnny Reid’s website with all proceeds also benefitting the “Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund.” The Canadian Red Cross is working in partnership with the Government of Nova Scotia to provide support to the individuals, families and communities for both immediate and long-term needs. Those who would like to donate directly to the Red Cross can do so HERE.
