Canadian pop-rock musician Justin Hines will put on a show in Red Deer this weekend in support of a local charity that helps addicted youth.

The Newmarket, Ont., singer-songwriter, best known for the hit Say What You Will from his second album Chasing Silver, is on his Vehicle of Change Tour across North America. Hines sees it as a chance to give back to fans while supporting “amazing local charities,” with 100 per cent of funds raised going to various non-profits.

In Red Deer, Hines will perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday at the McMan’s Park Plaza building, Unit 103 5214 47th Ave., in support of the McMan Substance Abuse Services for Youth.

Hines, who uses a wheelchair because of a rare genetic joint condition called Larsen’s syndrome, is a strong supporter of charity and has performed at many fundraising events.

Before releasing his latest album How We Fly in May, he sang There’s No Place Like This for a TV commercial for Tourism Ontario, and created the song/video Tomato Hat, used on the 1997 children’s Treehouse program Ants in Your Pants.

Hines, who has performed from China to the Middle East, won a radio contest at age 14 against hundreds of participants. This allowed him to start his career by singing at a Toronto Raptors game.

More recently, he was part of the first-ever Canadian Paralympic Torch Relay in 2010.

His North American tour is made possible through online fan contributions as well as the donated RV that Hines is using for touring.

Tickets for the Red Deer show are $20. They can be ordered from www.shelleystreit.com/justin-hines or purchased at the door.
