During Music Canada’s 2016 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, Toronto-based singer, songwriter, and producer Alx Veliz was presented with his first Canadian Gold plaque for the single “Dancing Kizomba.” The plaque for the breakout hit, which has also been recorded in Spanish and certified Gold in Spain, was presented to Veliz by Universal Music Canada President & CEO Jeffrey Remedios.

“Dancing Kizomba” was officially announced Gold in the first wave of Single certifications in September, when Music Canada revealed updates to its Gold/Platinum program to now include on-demand streams for track certifications.
