Vancouver’s own Freshh – 2011 Canadian National Hip Hop champions, Hip Hop International Grand finalists, and Canada’s Got Talent finalists – perform at the Cystic Fibrosis Canada 2012 Annual General Meeting.
The boys huddle after their performance while the room offers a standing ovation.
Ryan Morrissette, a member of Freshh, is one of 4,000 Canadians coping with cystic fibrosis. Despite spending most of his days taking medication just so he can breathe, Morrissette continues to pursue his dancing career. Truly inspiring stuff.
Again, another standing ovation for Morrisette’s speech.
Freshh and the Cystic Fibrosis Canada leadership pose in front of Sixty Five Red Roses – a collaborative painting by the Federation of Canadian Artists to honour Eva Markvoort and to support the fundraising efforts of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
You know what’s the best part of specializing in conference photography? They always bring out amazing talent. Often times, I walk away inspired. Friday night was no different. Ryan and the rest of Freshh – you guys blew my mind. So young. So much drive.
See more from Freshh at their YouTube channel and be sure to vote for them in the Canada’s Got Talent finals on May 13th!
