On behalf of The Gift of Music Team, I want to express our sincere gratitude to EVERYONE who made December 8, 2011 another memorable and special night. In 2 years, we are proud to have donated $9,000.00 to MusiCounts Canada. It goes without saying that from the conception of the idea in August 2010, each event has been a true labour of love for our team, and we have so many people we want to thank.
To Michie “Badgyal” Mee (the Hostess with the Mostest) –
We were so thrilled to have you host this event that has such great meaning to us. Your pizzazz set our stage on fire, and that one of Canada’s most trendsetting artists was a part of this means the world.
To Jester, DJ Ononymous, DJ Rych Kydd and P-Plus –
It is one thing to be a great DJ, that which all of you are. But to support our mission to keep music programs alive in schools across Canada is a greatness unparalleled.
To our phenomenal roster of Gift of Music performers –
Andreena Mill, Divine Brown, August Rigo, Ray Robinson, Omar Lunan, A-GAME, Rich Kidd, Slakah the Beatchild, Shi Wisdom, Ms Paige, Yosvany and Selah (the Band)…that you would embrace our vision and exceed our expectations is the BEST Gift of Music we could ever ask for. We are truly grateful for being the substance of our show, and for loving music as much as we do that you would make sharing it with us your life’s mission.
To The Hard Rock Cafe –
Thank you for all your help, your flexibility, and the wonderful donations towards our cause.

To everyone that joined us at The Gift of Music –
Thank you for choosing to spend a cold Thursday night in December with us. Our next event is already in the works, and we promise you warmer weather! Great to see everyone united in music.
Yours very sincerely,
Darling Nicky on behalf of The Gift of Music Team
P.S. If we have forgotten anyone, it is NOT that we are ungrateful, it is that we are human. We cherish everyone who shared the evening with us.
