Roch Voisine is soaking up the Canadian Olympic experience with his song Living Out My Dreams. It’s the official anthem of the Canadian Olympic Team, but Roch says it didn’t start out that way. He told AM 740’s Norm Edwards, “it wasn’t written for the Olympics but had the right values and all the right motivations and what it is to live up to your dreams and that in fact, you can’t do this alone. You need people around you.”
The song was co-written by Dean Landon and Anika Paris and recorded with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and conductor Kent Nagano. A donation from the profits of Living Out My Dreams goes to the Canadian Olympic Foundation to help support emerging athletes.
