Sarah McLachlan, one of Canada’s most celebrated singer-songwriters, a 12-time JUNO Award winner and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, will host The JUNO Awards live at Budweiser Gardens in London on Sunday, March 17, 2019. Pop star bülow was also confirmed as one of the performers at the annual Canadian music awards show.
“I’m honoured to have been asked to host the 48th Annual JUNO Awards,” said McLachlan. “I know intimately what it feels like to be on the JUNO stage and I feel truly blessed to play a new role for an organization that has supported me throughout my career.”
McLachlan has sold over 40 million albums throughout her career and, in 2017, was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. She released her most recent studio album, Wonderland, in 2016, which won the JUNO Award for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year as well as a Grammy Nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. The trailblazer has contributed to many philanthropic causes throughout her impressive musical career, including founding the Lilith Fair Tour in the late ‘90s, showcasing some of the top female artists and raising over $7M for local and national charities. In 2002 McLachlan founded her non-profit organization, the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides top quality music instruction at no cost, in a safe and nurturing environment, for at-risk and underserved children and youth.
Also announced today, German-Canadian singer/songwriter bülow was confirmed as a performer at the must-watch awards show. The rising pop-singer, most recognized for her first EP’s breakthrough multi-platinum hit in 2017, “Not a Love Song”, will join a lineup of previously announced performers including 2019 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee Corey Hart and Loud Luxury. Additional talent announcements will follow in the coming weeks.
