NKPR presents: TD Music Green Room

Posted on

This past weekend Natasha and the NKPR team travelled to Winnipeg to celebrate The Juno Awards! To celebrate, TD – national sponsor of the JUNO Awards and presenting sponsor of the JUNO Fan Choice Award –  hosted the “TD Music Green Room“, a lounge experience offering fans and talent an opportunity to mingle, sip on cocktails, have their photo snapped and enjoy music performances from both local and nationally recognized  talent. It was an incredible two days spent with a group of inspirational and talented artists of all ages, styles and backgrounds!

Here’s an inside look at some of the amazing performances we got to enjoy! 

Broadway Hip Hop Academy, recipients of a MusiCounts TD Community Grant, showcased their passion for music by performing original tracks “2 Plus 9” and “Believe” written by the group. It was inspiring to see how much musical potential each young person has and how MusiCounts with the support of TD has helped turn their dreams into a reality.

JUNO nominee, Florence K serenaded the audience with three beautiful songs, and proved to be both talented AND witty; her sense of humour energized and, entertained crowd.

Status 4 Inc.’s performance was both moving and endearing. The organization was also awarded a MusiCounts TD Community Grant and the group was so excited about having the opportunity to perform at the TD Music Green Room. They were also particularly taken with the photo booth at the green room and had fun taking snaps!

JRDN performed his JUNO Award-winning track “Can’t Choose” as part of an intimate acoustic set which was a definite highlight of the weekend and had the audience swooning.
