Andy Kim Christmas Charity Show Back For Gifts of Light

Andy Kim Christmas Charity Show Back For Gifts of Light

By Karen Bliss


Music Hall of Famer Andy Kim is excited about returning to live. His long-running annual Christmas show had to go virtual last year because of the pandemic, albeit it did allow the Sugar Sugar/ Rock Me Gently hitmaker to finally have the fundraiser televised and taken to a national audience, raising over $200,000.

The 17th Andy Kim Christmas will be staged at the newly renovated Massey Hall in Toronto on Dec. 8 and features a typically stellar lineup of guests:  Billy Talent, The Sheepdogs, Ron Sexsmith, Rush’s Alex Lifeson, Jully Black, Tyler Shaw, Sloan, William Prince, Mary Margaret O’Hara, the E Street Band’s Jake Clemons, Men Without Hats, The Pursuit of Happiness, Theo Tams, Beverly Mahood, Georgia Harmer and Choir, Choir, Choir.

“All the artists I’ve asked are as excited as I am to be surrounded by live music again. There’s nothing better. Add Massey Hall to the equation and I get the feeling we’re getting back to normal,” Kim told Samaritan in an email.

Tickets are available on the Massey Hall website, ranging in price from $37.50 to $97.50 (plus service charges). The show usually sells out. Over the 17 years, Kim’s concert has raised more than $1.8 million for charity. – Continue reading on the Samaritanmagwebsite.
