We Are the North is the OFFICIAL Summer Anthem for Mississauga

MEDIA RELEASE:   
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Friday June 16, 2017
“WE ARE THE NORTH” HAS BEEN DECLARED THE OFFICIAL SONG REPRESENTING MISSISSAUGA FOR THE SUMMER OF 2017

“We are the North, we are the Strong, we are Together and we are FREE”
MISSISSAUGA, ON – As of June 7th, the new track entitled, “We Are the North” has been named by Madame Mayor Crombie and the Mississauga Council as Mississauga’s Official song for Summer 2017.   Mississauga’s top emerging songwriters have come together to create a song celebrating the nation’s 150th Anniversary and beyond is a song about hope, unity and diversity, Canada’s greatest strengths.
We Are the North was penned by a new musical collective known as From Far & Wide. The group is comprised of award-winning musician and television personality Arlene Paculan, singer/songwriter Matt Zaddy, Hip Hop artist/producer THE iDENTiTY CRiSiS, and award-winning performer/arts specialist Heather Christine.
Here is what Mayor Bonnie Crombie said about the song, We Are the North:
“We were inspired to come together to write a song about what it is to be a Canadian in 2017,” explains Matt Zaddy. “We are proud to be Canadian because our differences bring us together as a people and they are a source of strength. All of the artists in From Far & Wide were raised in Mississauga, a community celebrated for acceptance, open-mindedness and respect for equality. There are so many different cultures around us and this celebration of diversity is what makes Mississauga a model city for the world. In a response to this challenging period in history, we decided to write a song which would clarify and re-emphasize what our generation feels. The lyrics say, ‘We are the North, we are the Strong, we are Together and we are FREE.’”

Just recently, The Glimpse Team, made up of Grade 3 students, saw From Far & Wide’s video and they are so very impressed how it captures what they feel Canada is all about! The Glimpse Team put together a spotlight on the 4 pieces that came together to form From Far & Wide and they reflected on the lyrics of their new song.
