We’ve been attending the HUGGS yearly benefits since we moved to Vancouver. HUGGS CANADA sponsors young people in India who show the potential to continue their studies but whose families do not have the necessary resources. HUGGS is committed to providing the educational and support needs of our students through their education. This year we’re not gonna make it, which is sad because they are having a fundraising concert at The Cultch with Téa Petrovic on the 24th November, so I just wanted to spread the word to everyone who is going to be here, because it sounds like a good time for what I know is a good cause.
Téa is a Vancouver based singer/ pianist/ songwriter who fuses elements of R&B, Soul, and Pop music into her own brand of “City Soul”. Drawing inspiration from diverse artists like Sade, Amy Winehouse, and Remy Shand, Téa has crafted an unmistakable sound that continues to win audiences over.
Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Téa was introduced to the piano at the age of 7. At 12, she started playing the guitar. After moving with her family to Vancouver, BC, she started writing songs at the age of 14, received the Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (A.R.C.T.) diploma in piano performance at 18, and a B.A. in music from the University of British Columbia at 22. www.teasmusic.com
