Television Worth Watching

Canadian television has some original shows. One of best of those shows is a program called "Canada Sings"

The idea of the show is to have employees from two different employers do a "Glee Club" performance in competition with employees from another employer. Each group is competing for a prize -- but that prize is to be given to a specific charity chosen by the group. Even though the performances are done by amateurs, most of them are very enjoyable and are very well done.

The performers are not working as professional dancers or singers, although some of them may have experience along those lines. Earlier this year, members of the Royal Canadian Air Force competed. Their charity was an organization to take care of veterans wounded, disabled, or otherwise physically effected by their service. Some of these service men and women performing were musicians, but none of them were dancers. I don't think any of them were singers, either. But they were competing for something that was important to them and, as service people do, they did was expected of them.

Have a box of Kleenex handy.
