Join beloved Canadian tenor John McDermott as he delivers holiday cheer and makes a stop at the Red Deer Memorial Centre on Saturday, November 30th at 2:30 pm. As is John's tradition, he will sing holiday favourites, songs from his illustrious musical career, and tasteful Remembrance tributes. John McDermott is an international recording star and household name known as much for his successful musical career as for his commitment to veterans' causes. He has been nominated for a number of Juno awards and received the U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor Society's Bob Hope Award for his support for veterans' causes. His first album, "Danny Boy", garnered strong sales in the U.S. and Canada and reached number one in New Zealand. This success, won through a tireless touring schedule, led to his participation in the PBS phenomenon, The Irish Tenors. John has gone on to record numerous albums, including Journeys. This extremely moving album includes songs such as "The Dreamer" and "The Gift of Years," both written by renowned songwriter Eric Bogle. Proceeds of the sales went to McDermott House Canada, a charity that John created. McDermott House Canada is a project close to John's heart, and he says: "Every day the men and women who serve our country, and the police, firefighters and first responders who serve our communities put their lives on the line and themselves in harm's way. When asked why they simply say: "It's what we do". They serve freely and willingly, asking for very little in return." to learn more about McDermott House Canada visit: https://mcdermotthousecanada.org/
