Home For A Rest

Published On January 11, 2018 | By Nick Sawicki | Mornings

On November 19, 2017 close to 50 of Canada’s most celebrated musicians gathered at the legendary Commodore Ballroom to help a dear friend– John Mann, singer for Spirit of the West.

John has Early-onset Alzheimer’s which demands incredible resources, and the musical community rallied for an amazing show of support in one unforgettable night of music and love.

A makeshift studio was assembled in the building to record this song on the spot as a memento of the gathering and to help raise funds for John’s continuing care.

A GoFundMe page has been set up, if you’d like to help, CLICK HERE.

This is for John.

This special recording of “Home For A Rest” was performed by: Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, Sarah McLachlan, Alan Doyle, Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies, Spirit Kids, Barney & Dustin Bentall, Colin James, Craig Northey and The Odds, Shari Ulrich, Jim Byrnes, Kendel Carson, Daniel Lapp, Spirit of the West with Cory Tetford, Shehab Illyas & Kris MacFarlane.
