I'll Be Your Hero
A Project Inspired by Front-line/Essential Workers to Raise Funds for a Trio of Charities in Need
About the Project
Nikita Graham has captured the emotions and visuals that many of us have experienced the last few months with the release of I’LL BE YOUR HERO. Now, the BC born singer and songwriter is hoping you’ll join her efforts in the project that supports underfunded charities and essential services that touch the lives of vulnerable and marginalized people both in Canada and abroad.
During the COVID-19 crisis, she reached out to some of BC’s top musicians and the result is a harmonized message reminding front line and essential workers that there are millions of people standing behind them. Supporting Graham on I’LL BE YOUR HERO are musicians Dave Genn (54-40), Clay Hill (Trooper), Tim Neuhaus (Ear Art Music Studios), Mike Schell (Uptown Hornz), and Mark Larmand (Cadillac Kings). Backup vocals are Sami Ghawi (FUSIONpresents) and BC artists Chris Goodchild and Marji Graham. The single was produced by a team including Mark Larmand, Ethan Ellis (Master Class Entertainment) and Daren Denker (Dynalectric Orchestra). Although the project was extremely difficult to record and produce remotely during quarantine, the musicians and producers came together to deliver a powerful performance.
We’re supporting the international and exhaustive effort of Doctors Without Borders because the entire world has been affected by this pandemic. As for HelpAge Canada, seniors are the demographic hit hardest by COVID-19. Regarding supporting an Aboriginal charity..being of both European and Aboriginal decent, I wanted to support things close to my heart. ~Nikita Graham
