Oh boy, yesterday was rad. 

I got the heads up that MusiCounts and Arkells were planning something really cool yesterday. So, I decided to pop by and watch it unfold. It all started a few months ago, when the students at Calgary Arts Academy entered a contest, to try and win themselves a musical instrument scholarship. For that contest, they put together a pretty impressive cover of Arkell's 'People's Champ':

Fast forward to yesterday, and the kids think they're about to perform the song for some members of the Calgary media. But that's when the surprise happened.

The kids LOVED it. And, it was really cool to see them so excited about music, and some great Canadian dudes in Arkells. The mayor showed up, too, helping give the kids a $5,000 Band Aid intrument scholarship.

Like I said, yesterday was rad.
