Join Leduc singer/songwriter Julia Vos raising funds for youth shelter Fri to Sun

Mulhurst Bay’s singer/songwriter busking in Edmonton for Youth Emergency Shelter

Local singer / songwriter Julia Vos raised in Mulhurst Bay, Alberta as well as Leduc, Alberta is busy cultivating her singing / songwriting career.

Please join Julia in her fund raising efforts for the Youth Emergency Shelter this Friday starting at 9 p.m. – Saturday 9 p.m. on Whyte Avenue where she will “Busk to Dawn” singing and playing some of her favourite tunes all for a good cause.

Julia just returned from the CCMA’s (Canadian Country music association) in Calgary, where she had a show case at the ‘Blue Jay’ cafe. She was part of the singer/ songwriter circle there and was thrilled when CCMA award winning artist Paul Brandt showed up to join her in the circle. Julia was thrilled to jam with such an amazing icon like Paul Brandt. She recently opened for CCMA artist Tebey at Taste of Edmonton this past summer and had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at the Toronto Blue Jays game in May. It was the third time she was asked to sing the anthem for the Blue Jays. Julia is now one of the top 12 finalist for Project wild sponsored by 95.3 fm Calgary. As a finalist Julia received funding to record her new single called ‘Stay’ which will be released to radio in the new year as well as Spotify, apple music, iTunes and cd baby. You can find her latest single ‘Whispers’ on these sites.

Based in Edmonton, YESS provides immediate and low-barrier shelter, temporary housing, and individualized wraparound support for youth ages 15-24.

They focus on working collaboratively with their youth-supporting partners on prevention and diversion out of homelessness. Ultimately, they aim to walk beside traumatized youth as they heal through relationships.

My mission is to stand with underprivileged youth that have not had available resources and are faced with no where to go but the streets. YESS focuses on prevention and diversion out of homelessness. I have worked with youth of all ages my entire life. From teaching music lessons, working in child care centres and volunteering… each youth has presented a different story and has inspired me in a unique way. Every youth deserves support and resources, no matter what their story is or how they got to that point.

In doing so, I will be on Whyte Ave for 24 hours busking. My busking journey started almost a year ago with Edmonton International Airport. In addition to the 24 hour event, you can catch me at Edmonton International airport busking every day for the cause leading up to the event. All busking proceeds will be donated to YESS.
