The 2018 JUNO Awards were rich in love, empowering statements, kindness, and what’s most important: humans from around the world celebrated Canadian bands and artists from Coast to Coast to Coast.
We’ve discovered the music of great craft and multifaceted charm. For some, it was the celebration of lifetime achievements and for others, it was the opening chapter of a thrilling music career.
The 2018 JUNO Awards = a roaring gala filled with glitter, golden balloons, and open hearts.
There is a symphony in our hearts to do good and spread love in this world. There is so much love to give and receive if you allow your heart to be open. Stretch it out as wide as the horizon. Fill your soul with all the music’s beauty and cherish every single thing that surrounds you. A huge thank you to the JUNO Awards for bringing so many people together and creating magic.
