During his performance last Saturday at the CCMA Awards‘s free Fanfest concert in Halifax, NS, Canadian country singer/songwriter Tim Hicks was presented his fourth Canadian Gold awards plaque for his hit track “Here Comes The Thunder”. Following the eventful weekend, Hicks took to his Twitter page to thank his fans and post a photo of the award presentation, which was also live-streamed via Periscope.
Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa was in Toronto last week with Fall Out Boy for a performance at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheater on the Boys Of Zummer tour. Prior to taking the stage, Khalifa was presented with a custom plaque by Warner Music Canada commemorating the Triple Platinum certification of his latest single “See You Again” (ft. Charlie Puth) from the Furious 7 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

“See You Again” is the seventh Canadian certification for Wiz Khalifa and joins his tracks “Black And Yellow” and “Young Wild And Free” as his highest to date. Fans of the the Fast And Furious franchise have welcomed the song as a touching tribute to actor Paul Walker, who passed away during the filming of the 7th installment of the film franchise in 2013.
