I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, NO ONE does it like Brett Kissel. Not only is he a world class performer, but the guy is just so fantastic with the music community and more importantly, his fans. He genuinely cares. I’ll never forget when we had him come over the the Stollery Children’s Hospital to sing to some of the kids. The way he spoke to those families, you could see for that brief period of time, they forgot all about the terrible things that they were going through just washed away when he sang.
Fast forward to Sunday’s show. It was Brett’s return to Edmonton, a big deal to him. But in classic Brett Fashion, He made it about someone else. That someone else was 8 year old Janaya, a little girl battling cancer that will eventually cut her young life much too short. When “I Didn’t Fall In Love With Your Hair” came on, the magical moment happened.
I can confirm there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
