Florence K - Balcony songs for Relief
Balcony songs to support Relief's mission!
As part of Relief's 30th anniversary celebrations, every morning from May 20 to June 18, 2021, Florence K will offer a series of 30 coffee songs for 30 days on her Facebook page.
You are also invited to make a donation of at least $20 to be able to indicate your song as a special request that will be drawn during the last day of the balcony songs event on June 18! This last day will be highlighted in the form of a benefit concert live from her balcony.
Who is Florence K?
Florence K is a Canadian pop singer and songwriter from Quebec, who performs in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. Since the release of her debut album Live at Lion D’Or in 2005, Florence K has continually earned accolades for her wide-ranging musical approach. Two of her albums, Bossa Blue (2006) and La Historia De Lola (2008) won Félix Awards for ‘World Music Album of the Year’, while her first Christmas opus Havana Angels - recorded in Cuba - was a huge smash in 2010. In 2013, this incredible artist, who can speak and sing fluently in four languages (French, English, Spanish and Italian), returned with I’m Leaving You, made in Los Angeles with legendary producer/bassist Larry Klein. The album garnered Florence K her first JUNO nomination for ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’, as well as an ADISQ award nomination for ‘Best Anglophone Album of the Year’. She subsequently released five more albums, selling a total of 250 000 records to this day. She is now the host of the weekly CBC Music/CBC Radio show “C’est Formidable!” while completing her Master’s degree in Mental Health and her prerequisites to enter the PhD in the University of Montreal neuropsychology program next year to become a clinical practitioner.
Since then, Florence chooses to use her personal experience to help raise awareness about mental health, a cause to which she devotes much of her time. Florence was recognized in November 2017 by the Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) as one of 150 Canadian leaders in mental health. As an ambassador for Bell’s Let’s Talk campaign, she gives nationwide conferences where she shares her story open-heartedly, offering her perspective on mental health in today’s society.
This year, Florence K has also been working with Relief, where she is involved in the field.
