Super Sonic soars to win Canada Sings choir slot

  • Print

As it turns out, Super Sonic has some super singers. And dancers, too.

The 13 members of the locally based Royal Canadian Air Force Band who appeared in Tuesday’s instalment of Canada Sings were victorious in the Global TV reality series’ show-choir competition.

Performing as Super Sonic, the musicians — most of whom had no previous experience as singers or dancers — bested a team from Mississauga’s Peel Children’s Aid Society and earned a $25,000 donation for Support Our Troops, a charity that supports injured and ill Canadian Forces personnel.

Both teams impressed the show’s judges — Laurieann Gibson, Rob Van Winkle (a.k.a. Vanilla Ice) and Jann Arden — with Van Winkle offering to match the $5,000 runner-up prize awarded to the Peel Children’s Aid Society.

Canada Sings airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Global. Watch a video about the group.
