Hosted by CTV's Josh Classen
We're thrilled to have Josh Classen back as our YOUth POWER 7 host and MC for the day! As Chief Meteorologist on CTV, you can catch Josh on TV every night of the week talking weather, and representing out community. Aside from his incredible career in the entertainment industry, he has a unique connection to the power of music which we love, as a semi-retired hip-hop artist with legit rhyming skills. Meet with Josh onsite, and ask him questions of your own about breaking into the entertainment industry. Find out how he hustled and worked hard to achieve what he has today.
Live Performance by Paul Woida
Check out the live performance to kick off our formal stage program at 1 PM by the talented Paul Woida. Paul Woida is a singer/song writer/master looper (a “ looper” records and plays back pieces of music using instruments and voice in real time creating multiple layers). Having graduated from Grant MacEwan University in both Composition and Drum Set, he has the exceptional ability to combine complex rhythms and harmony which, via the looper, result in a sound close to that of a full band.
He is often compared to Ed Sheeran, Jason Mraz and Jeff Buckley and has a unique live show which turns heads and wins the hearts of new fans wherever he goes. His incredible musicianship, catchy hooks and emotive vocals are unforgettable once experienced.
