Shania Twain is a Canadian country pop artist whose album Come on Over is the best-selling album of all time by a female musician and the best-selling album in the history of country music.
She started Shania Kids Can to give underprivileged children the chance to play music or take lessons their families could not otherwise afford. Shania intends to be closely involved, visiting schools and finding out how to make a difference in children’s lives.
“I can personally relate to the effects of growing up with difficulties at home and understand the problems kids can face while trying to fit in with the other students who are not experiencing the same disadvantages in their personal lives,” she said. “The Shania Kids Can program aims to help educators identify children in this situation and provide a safe, productive, confidence-building environment where the kids are coached in good and appropriate behavior, taught practical life skills, assisted with homework, given an ear to just simply listen when they need it. The space provides healthy socializing and a chance to fit in without feeling judged for how they dress, what their grades are, who their parents are or how much money they have, but more for who they are on the inside.”
