It’s time to come out of the cold and spring into a new level of awareness surrounding the sensitive issue of prostate cancer and the Black community. Canadian Black men are 65% more likely to get prostate cancer than white men and almost three times more likely to die from the disease!
Sway Magazine will raise awareness April 13 with Santé Soirée, a blowout benefit that brings together some of Canada’s hottest performers in conjunction with Prostate Cancer Canada. The star studded line-up will be co-hosted by the Juno Award-winning darling Divine Brown, and star comedian Trixx, known for his sell-out performances at Yuk Yuks and appearances on Much Music’s Video On Trial. The evening’s performers include rapper Silver (aka Solitair) responsible for the chart-topping Kardinal Offishal’s anthemic “BaKardi Slang,” powerhouse R&B songstress, Liberty Silver, who has had the honour of performing for Barack Obama and numerous other heads of state. Also on the bill is Mac Graham, who’s current single, “Midnight,” has been receiving enthusiastic playback from radio stations across Canada.
