Canadian musicians Terra Lightfoot, Lindi Ortega and Begonia are teaming up for an Ontario tour in February that will benefit multiple organizations.


Titled the Longest Road Show, the tour will hit Kitchener, Ottawa, Hamilton, London and Toronto between Feb. 5 and Feb. 9. Proceeds from the tour will support Women in Music Canada, MusiCounts, YWCA Canada, and Girls Rock Camp.

Lightfoot, who organized the tour, said the idea for it came to her as a vision.

"About a year ago, I had a vision," Lightfoot writes on her site. "I wanted to put together a yearly tour that would feature artists I love backed up by a house band of players that I have always wanted to see in a band together. A few months ago, that dream became a reality – continue reading Aaron Brophy’s feature about the team and the tour on the SamaritanMag website.

Alicia Keys and Jay-Z to Perform ‘Empire State of Mind’ on 2024 Tony Awards

The song always packs a special jolt of excitement when performed in New York City.

It was too perfect an opportunity to pass up: Alicia Keys and Jay-Z will perform “Empire State of Mind” during the 77th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 16. The show is set to air live on both coasts from the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/5:00-8:00 p.m. live PT) on CBS, and to stream on Paramount+ in the U.S.

“Empire State of Mind” is featured in Hell’s Kitchen, the musical based on Keys’ early life and music which is nominated for 13 Tony Awards. That put it in a tie with the play Stereophonic as this year’s most-nominated production.
