Music group Sirens of Shanti gives back to CameronHelps

An alternative music group called Sirens of Shanti has approached CameronHelps with an offer to help the charity.

Sirens of Shanti (also known as SOS) is led by Tony Singh, former lead singer of Punjabi By Nature. The band’s music is self-described as  “fusing Bollywood, Beastie Boys and White Zombie. “

“It’s an exciting partnership especially since our demographic is very interested in their type of music.  It’s very rewarding to see the band wanting to give back and help us reach youth through music,” says Program Director John Knox.

The band is playing next on Sunday August 30 at a music festival called Toronto Color Festival. They have offered to provide space at their booth at the festival where youth can find more about the charity’s Team Unbreakable run programs and literature about depression, anxiety and mental illness.

The group’s Artistic Director Valerie Pospondinis recommended to Tony that CameronHelps be their charity of choice. She first heard about the charity while registering for the Misissauga Marathon.

Says Tony, “We all have our own stories either personally or through friends or family that connects us to the work being done by this charity.  It’s a pleasure to help and we hope this is just the beginning of other ways we can help raise awareness for the charity.”

Tony Singh is a singer/writer producer who was nominated for a Juno Award for his work with Punjabi By Nature.
