Canadian NHL player Mike Fisher will be making his first festival on-stage appearance at Boots & Hearts Music Festival this weekend. He’s part of the free gospel breakfast on Sunday, August 11th at the main stage which will features performances by High Valley and Michelle Wright. Mike, along with TSN’s Gino Reda, will speak to fans during the continental breakfast. Mike’s wife, Carrie Underwood, will be headlining during the Festival.
Mike won the NHL Foundation Award for the 2011-2012 season for his charitable work in the community. The Nashville Predator was recognized with the award for applying the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance, and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in need. He will be doing a question and answer segment with TSN’s Gino Reda during the breakfast on his faith.
“Having grown up right down the road, it’s exciting to see a world-class music festival like this being brought to our region. When I heard the concept the promoters were working on for Sunday morning, I was happy to help any way that I could,” said Fisher. “Faith is obviously something that’s played a vital role in my life, and I think the idea of providing a free breakfast to festival goers while great artists perform their favourite gospel songs is really cool. It’s something that I’ve never seen or even heard of at another festival before.”
Mike is a World Vision Ambassador and recently visited El Salvador to see first-hand the impact the charity makes on the lives of those in need.
Boots & Hearts runs August 9th through to the 12th in Bowmanville, Ontario. It’s the inaugural year for the festival, which plans on becoming an annual event.
