Alessia Cara sent a message of hope and friendship to the people of Canada with an uplifting performance during the ‘Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble’ special.

The Ontario-born singer-songwriter sang her own unique version of Randy Newman’s “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” as part of the star-studded multi-platform benefit.

The inspiring rendition won fans across social media, including Arkells, who jumped on Twitter to praise Cara’s choice of song.

“Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble” features a star-studded lineup of homegrown artists, activists, actors and athletes.

Conceived and produced in an unprecedented collaboration between Insight Productions, Bell Media Studios and CBC/Radio-Canada, the broadcast will see more than two dozen TV, radio and streaming platforms donate their airtime for the one-hour, commercial-free presentation.

The event is in support of Food Banks Canada’s $150-million campaign to provide immediate support to food banks across Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic.
