Strike a ChordMusic Heals has announced that its third annual Strike a Chord event held in late October in Vancouver raised over $125,000 for music therapy. The show featured Big Sugar, Shane Koyczan, Delhi 2 Dublin, and the world’s only all-female orchestra, the Allegra Chamber Orchestra.

Taking the stage for the evening’s grand finale was Grammy-winning producer Chin Injeti, Jully Black, Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar), Ashleigh Ball (Hey Ocean), Sanjay Seran (Delhi 2 Dublin), Tonye Aganabe, The Lifetimes, and more, unleashing an extended emotional version of Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

There’s still an opportunity contribute, and donate using someone else’s money. Chimp is giving Music Heals supporters $50 to donate to Music Heals, and The Dayhu Group of Companies is offering to match every donation until Nov. 11th.

Simply visit and $50 will automatically be added to your account.

Then search for the Strike A Chord giving group to direct your $50, which will be instantly matched by Dayhu. (Important: be sure to give to Strike A Chord and not Music Heals Charitable Foundation, in order for it to be matched).

Music Heals says it would like to thank all of the artists, sponsors, and attendees for making this year’s Strike A Chord such a wonderful success.

Next year’s Strike A Chord moves to The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on Thursday October 19th, 2017.
