There's A Train A-Comin' (Short Film)

This summer we filmed our first promo film for Big It Up. The shoot took place in the TTC subway and features talented Toronto singer/songwriter Dane Hartsell. 

You'll also spot talented musicians Neil Brathwaite, Sam Rose, Peggy Kry & Waleed Abdulhamid. Did you spot special guest T-Rexx (Rap City host) who appears as a Judge in the audition scene?

 Jali is an aspiring musician who makes his money playing on the streets. Kelly sees his passion and takes interest in him. When Jali leaves his hat on the subway, Kelly does her best to return the hat to him.

Big It Up's 15th Anniversary Bash/Fundraiser ~ City Lights

It's hard to believe that it's been so long, this Saturday (October 8th) we are celebrating our 15th anniversary with a line up of some incredible homegrown talent! We've taken this opportunity to raise money for our charity initiative 'Youth In Time' which benefits young adults diagnosed with cancer from the ages of 18-29. The emphasis of Youth In Time is creating peer group interaction using creative and artistic workshops. Housed at Princess Margaret Hospital, Youth In Time is now in its second year with a dozen participants so far.

The event will be held at the Great Hall in Toronto, doors open at 7:00. The talented lineup includes Tanika Charles & the Wonderfuls, Dane Hartsell, Ian Kamau, Micah Barnes, Ania Soul, Steve Foster and a special stage performance starring the Baby Boyz. Tickets can be purchased online or at any Big It Up location for $25 ($30 at the door)
