Rocky Performs "Walls Tumblin Down" at the Air Canada Center in Toronto for Free the Children

Ghana’s International Reggae Star, ROCKY DAWUNI, continues his globetrotting streak of performances with a scheduled appearance at one of Canada’s most high profile events, WE DAY, at the Air Canada Center in Toronto on September 30th, 2010. The event will also feature Somalian hip hop star K’Naan, appearances by luminaries like Nobel Peace Prize winnersWangari Maathai and Betty Williams as well bestselling author Deepak Chopra among many others. The event will be broadcast on Canada’s CTV and other major networks.

WE DAY was started by Free the Children to celebrate the power of young people to create positive change in the world. Since 2007, youth from across North America have come together to discover the passion they have in common, to celebrate their successes, to become aware of new challenges, and to build lasting friendships. The event features speeches by global leaders, social activists, cultural icons and performances by some of the top entertainers in the world.

These events come on the heels of the Ghanaian stars recent two month European tour, his show stopping performance at the Levitt Pavilion in Los Angeles and his critically acclaimed appearance on the influential KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” radio show with Jason Bentley. Rocky Dawuni’s current album “Hymns for the Rebel Soul” is now available on ITunes worldwide.

About WE DAY

WE Day and its dynamic, yearlong educational program, WE Schools, work together to empower youth to be drivers of social change.

At the heart of WE Day and WE Schools is the belief that when we act together, we can transform the world.

Sometimes, people don’t act because they’re unaware of the issues and don’t feel connected to the lives affected. Other times, people don’t act because they feel overwhelmed – they wonder how they could possibly make a meaningful difference.

Our model of youth empowerment challenges young people to act with intention, and lead with compassion and the conviction that together we can transform lives locally and globally.

We help young people understand the issues and how they can help, provide them with the tools to take action, and connect them to like-minded change-makers, creating a global community where together WE change the world.
