He performed his original song, Turn this World Around, for the late, great Nelson Mandela and has entertained generations of Canadian children and their families.

On Saturday, Jan. 18 at 2 p.m., Raffi will be performing for a whole new generation of Okanagan residents when he takes the stage at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

“I’m delighted to be singing for children and their families again,” said Raffi, who just had a string of successful family shows in both Canada and the U.S.

A singer, writer, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children, Raffi’s string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America includes his classic song, Baby Beluga.

Once called “the most popular children’s singer in the English-speaking world” (Washington Post) and “Canada’s all time children’s champion” (Toronto Star), he is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations’ Earth Achievement Awardj.

In 2010, Raffi founded The Centre for Child Honouring on Salt Spring Island. With the motto “Respecting Earth & Child,” the centre is at the heart of a global movement that views honouring children as the best way to create sustainable, peacemaking societies.

Tickets to see Raffi in Kelowna are $27.50, $37.50, and $65 (plus charges) available at www.ticketmaster.ca or  1-855-985-5000.
