I was really looking forward to crooning along with Mr. Bublé, but sadly, he’ll be recovering from surgery. Fret not, he’ll be honoured in 2017.

This year’s recipients include Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter Susan Aglukark, internationally acclaimed and contemporary dancer Marie Chouinard, among many others. Sadly, Michael Bublé, recipient of the National Art Centre Award will not be performing due to vocal cord surgery (#heartbroken).


I will be joining good friends Katrina Turnbull, host of Capital Style Files and Marilou Moles of Twenty York Street at the star-studded Gala Awards Show, where we will be treated to a glittering performances, a VIP dinner and receptions for audience members at the National Arts Centre.
