This Is My Canada / Mon cher Canada is a patriotic song that was written by Canadian songwriter Jeanette Arsenault. The song and the compelling music video were produced by Don Coleman. Coleman was also the project manager and organized the acquisition of the participants (6 Grammy & 13 Juno Awards), studio location and editing facilities etc ...
The song features an All-Canadian cast known as "Dream Team Canada Singers," that includes five time Grammy award-winner and Juno award-winning vocalist David Clayton-Thomas (Blood, Sweat & Tears), multiple Juno award-winner and Grammy award-winner (in collaboration with the song Tears Are Not Enough) Liberty Silver, Juno award winning recording artist Wilfred LeBouthillier from Tracadie, NB, and the eight time Juno award-winning and Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, The Good Brothers. The fabulous children's choir called, "Young Singers," directed by Anna Lynn Murphy also participated on the song and brought magnificent multicultural voices, energy and dynamic to the project. The recording also includes vocal performances by Jeanette Arsenault and Don Coleman.
Some of Canada's finest session musicians; Al Cross (Big Sugar, Ian Tyson, Great Big Sea), Russ Boswell (Corey Hart, Seals & Crofts, Holly Cole) and Richard Evans (Rita McNeil, Alan Frew, Billy Newton-Davis), delivered stellar performances on the track. Coleman says, "being surrounded by such an astounding group of talent is a dream come true, for all of the right reasons."
A very special appearance by 12 year old Malakai Daybutch, one of Canada's brilliant and sought-after traditional indigenous dancers, created magic. His presence, spirit, friendship and contribution were riveting and emotional.
