Sarah McLachlan is one of the most celebrated singer songwriters in entertainment with over 40 million albums sold worldwide. She has received three Grammy Awards and twelve Juno Awards over her career and was recently inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
In addition to her personal artistic efforts, McLachlan founded the Lilith Fair tour, which showcased female musicians and raised over $7 million for local and national charities. In 2002 McLachlan founded her non-profit organization, the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides top quality music instruction at no cost, in a safe and nurturing environment, for at-risk and underserved children and youth. From an early age, music provided McLachlan with the tools she needed to navigate the challenges she faced in her life, so she recognizes how important it is for every child to have those same opportunities.
“We are beyond thrilled that Sarah has agreed to appear on our behalf to help pediatric cancer patients, said Taryn Hoffman, Executive Director of the Green Side Up Foundation. “Sarah is not only a wonderful artist, but she has devoted a generous amount of her time in support of efforts to improve the lives of children and youth. Please join us for what will no doubt be a very special and inspiring evening of music.”
The Green Side Up Foundation is an Asheville-based non-profit organization providing support for local pediatric cancer patients. Through the public’s generous donations, its goal is to provide happiness experiences for young people and families battling cancer.
