Angels Share adapts

Annual Chelsea fundraiser goes digital


When asked about his next song to drop, Gatineau Hills music royalty Ian Tamblyn expressed, in his usual dry humour (this reporter was sure there was a wry smile hidden behind his facemask): “It’s a nice song, it has words in it.”

This year the annual Angels Share fundraiser for the Mill Road Community Space and a chosen community organization, has been forced to adapt, like every other aspect of life, to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the usual live concert, Angels Share is going digital. An eclectic team of artists have teamed up to write, perform and record a holiday song, “The Night When Angels Share,” and create an accompanying music video, which will premiere on Dec. 5.
