Most of them have visited Haiti on multiple occasions to volunteer in disadvantaged communities.This year’s gala was “festival fair” themed and was hosted at stunning Casa Loma, with performances by Arum Rae, Kayla Diamond and Maxwell. Also in attendance: The Tenors (the remaining three of them, anyway), fresh off the controversy that occurred this summer when Remigio Periera altered the lyrics to “Oh Canada” and held up a sign reading “All Lives Matter” at the MLB all-star game. Apparently the trio has had a hard time getting bookings in Canada since the incident. Login/Register With:center_img Facebook Advertisement Twitterlast_img
