Arkells Surprise CAA Students

On February 6, 2019, Canadian artists Arkells surprised Calgary Arts Academy students as they performed “People’s Champ” for CBC Music’s cameras.

The students had previously submitted a video recording of the song as their entry to CBC Music’s Music Class Challenge, for which they one first place in MusiCounts Passion Prize. 

Arkells saw the video entry and were impressed with the spirit of the students and were honoured that their original song was chosen.

When CBC Music announced they planned to record a CAA student performance of the song, Arkells decided they would like t surprise the students by joining them mid-song.
