Family donates children’s concert

When Emil Lee and his family were the highest bidders at a charity auction for a live concert featuring Charlie Hope, the children at their local public library were the audience they had in mind.

When Emil Lee and his family were the highest bidders at a charity auction for a live concert featuring Charlie Hope, the children at their local public library were the audience they had in mind.

So it was that Murrayville Library became the beneficiary of the Lee family’s generosity. Longtime users of the library, the Lee family “wanted to give something back to the public library.”

Singer Charlie Hope is a popular children’s musician and a Juno Award nominee. She will be playing songs for the very young from her album “I’m Me !” Hope was nominated for the Juno award in the Children’s Album of the Year category.

Charlie Hope has worked with children in pre-schools and holds a bachelor’s degree in art therapy with children. She believes strongly that music is an integral part of a child’s well-being. Her new album features singable songs such as Cowboy Boots, Train Song, Pop Goes the Weasel, Roll Over, Every Little Star, and other favourites.

In addition to the Juno Award nomination, her album earned a Parents’ Choice Awards Silver Honour, a Preferred Choice from Creative Child Magazine and Favorite Kids’ Album Award from Boston Children’s Music.

Everyone is welcome to attend this special concert on Wednesday, Aug. 17 at 4 p.m. The Murrayville Library is located at 22071 – 48 Avenue. Phone the library at 604-533-0339 to reserve a seat.
