The compilation CD features 17 original songs by Canadian singer/songwriters ranging from a Juno award winner to the best of up-and-coming Canadian talent.

“We are thrilled to be releasing our first B4B compilation album, to continue to support the women and men who are on their breast cancer journey through funds, awareness and the positive power of music,” says Ana Miura, Babes4Breasts founder and local singer/songwriter.
The concert will be held at the Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts in downtown Ottawa featuring five women in song-circle format who also appear on the compilation: Leela Gilday, Annabelle Chvostek, Amanda Rheaume, Tara Holloway and Ana Miura.
