Following their opening set for Kings Of Leon on Tuesday in Toronto, Sony Music Canada surprised South African alternative-rock group Kongos with Double Platinum award plaques for their breakthrough track “Come With Me Now”. The song, which has gained steady airplay on multiple radio formats across the country, comes off their 2014 album Lunatic. “Come With Me Now” lands at #13 this week after 26 weeks on the Canadian Top Digital Tracks chart.
Earlier this month, Sony Music Canada presented a 13-year-old girl from London, ON with a special Platinum award plaque at the launch party for her recording of Avril Lavigne’s song “Keep Holding On”. Autumn’s dream to be a pop star came true thanks to Make-A-Wish Canada and Sony Canada. Autumn, who was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder, signed on as a Sony artist to record her cover and get the full pop star treatment. “Her jaw was dropped for most of the party,” said Make-A-Wish grand coordinator Misha Medeiros. “She was so appreciative, and so grateful for everyone being there.”
