Iconic singer and actress Jane Mortifee is headlining the Habitat for Humanity Singing into Spring benefit concert at the Raven's Cry Theatre in Sechelt next Saturday, April 26.

CBC's Rick Cluff is hosting the evening, which will also feature Michael Creber on piano and Vancouver's Sound Eclectic Vocal Choir, directed by Katherine Nicholson.

A legendary Vancouver performer, Mortifee is a member of the B.C. Entertainment Hall of Fame and a YWCA Women of Distinction nominee in Arts and Culture who has been nominated for Jessie and Actra awards in theatre, film, television and song. She is donating her performance to the Sunshine Coast Habitat for Humanity to add to the monies needed to bring the Wilson Creek Habitat Village homes currently under construction to completion.

Alongside Mortifee will be Vancouver's Sound Eclectic Choir, directed by songstress and choral wizard Nicholson, who will be singing duets prepared solely for the concert. Nicholson has waived her director's fee and the choir is appearing pro bono as well.

Creber is accompanying on piano and looking forward to his visit to the Sunshine Coast. Cluff, no stranger to Coast listeners is generously appearing to support Habitat a cause he is happy to support.

Dont miss a wonderful evening that will have the added benefit of contributing to our community here on the Coast.Tickets are $45, available at Swish in Gibsons Landing, Ravens Cry Theatre, Habitat ReStore, Sechelts Visitors Centre and EarthFair in Madeira Park or by calling 604-740-3151.
