Congratulations to the newest Vancouver Canucks national anthem singer and West Vancouver resident Amanda Wood! Amanda rocked the house at Rogers Arena last night and looks to be back as a regular fixture in the rotation moving forward.

 

It should also be noted that she was wearing a stunning blue dress courtesy of Blush Bridal & Special Occasions located at 1403 Bellevue Ave in West Van (thanks Joelle!).

 

It was a great night for her as well as a great night for the Canucks...a 3-2 OT win against the New Jersey Devils.

 

 

Best regards,

Meghan Nichol, 'Rock the Rog' winner Amanda Wood and her husband Jesse Dean Cook 

 

After thousands of contestants entered for a chance to sing the Canadian and US anthems at an upcoming Vancouver Canucks game, the Top 20 were announced. After over a week of fan voting online, the Top 10 went to Rogers Arena last night in front of a celebrity panel of judges to sing both anthems.

 

West Vancouver resident Amanda Wood took home the crown and will be singing at an upcoming Canucks game this season! Not sure on the game at present but will be sure to let everyone know. This has capped off a busy summer of events such as the TD Vancouver Internations Jazz Festival, Harmony Arts Festival, Jazz Waves at the Silk Purse, tons of corporate and private events as well as the Coho Festival this past Sunday.

 

Be sure to check out Amanda's website at www.amandawood.com for upcoming gigs as well as her new studio album (recorded at Capital Records in LA) will be released in the next 30 days and you'll be able to purchase it online.

 

Congrats to Amanda and Go Canucks Go!

 

 

Best regards,

Diana Krall and her husband Elvis Costello are certainly two of the most well known celebrities that call West Vancouver home.

 

Born in Nanaimo, BC, Diana has become one of the most well known Jazz Pianists of our generation winning numerous awards including five Grammy's. In 2003 Diana was given an honorary Ph. D from UVic; in 2005 she was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame and in 2005 she was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.

 

Married in 2003 (at Elton John's London estate), Diana and Elvis have formed a wonderful partnership as they have collaborated on a number of songs. Diana and Elvis are both touring Europe over the summer and hopefully Vancouver will be a stop on their North American legs towards the end of 2013.

 

For more information about each artist as well as how to purchase music (as well as Diana's critically acclaimed 2012 Album "Glad Rag Doll") please click on the links below.
