Music has had a profound effect on 12-year old Ty Venegas, a grade 7 student at Eagle Mountain Middle School. Throughout his life music has been a source of healing and strength.
Now he's giving back to his community by working with Music Heals, a B.C. non-profit. Together, they are raising money and awareness for Music Therapy programs across Canada. A portion of the proceeds from this new holiday single Everything I Want for Christmas will be donated to Music Heals.
Ty got everything he wanted for Christmas by getting to work with three-time Grammy award winner Chin Injeti on this new song about the important things at Christmas, like spending time with family and friends, listening to music and eating good food.
See Ty preform at the upcoming CP Holiday Train in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam on Sunday, December 17 and watch Ty performing his Christmas Song on CTV during the Santa Claus Parade.
