Canada’s Diversity Celebration 2017

The annual Indian-Chinese Bollywood singing event at Flato Markham Theatre was another huge success.  Event chair and Regional Councillor Joe Li hosted the April cultural event in collaboration with Co-Chair Amar Erry and Joe Samion– President of Yin Hua Association of Ontario.

This Indo-Chinese Bollywood singing event provides a platform to unite many local artists, brings the Indian and Chinese communities together, and celebrates unity and diversity in our City of Markham, the most diversity city in Canada.  The program featured a mix of 18 talented amateur singers who sang a variety of popular and classic hits in Hindi, Chinese, and English.  Over 527 people attended to experience this sold out community event.

Many dignitaries attended, including Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Regional Councillor Armstrong, Alan Ho Ward 2 Councillor, Amanda Collucci Ward 6 Councillor, Logan Kanapathi Ward 7, and Alex Chiu Ward 8 Councillor along with York Regional Police Superintendent Fred Moffatt of Number Five District, Constable Ali Lalani and Sergeant Paul Chiang.
