Mul­ti­ple award-nom­i­nated com­poser and pro­ducer, An­drew A. Meltzer, who re­sides on P.E.I., re­leased his new, in­de­pen­dent sin­gle record­ing “We Love You, Canada” – “Nous t’ai­mons, Canada” this past Fri­day, fea­tur­ing the Con­fed­er­a­tion Cen­tre Youth Cho­rus, un­der the di­rec­tion of Don­ald Fraser.

The song lyrics have been cre­ated in both of our coun­try’s of­fi­cial lan­guages (with French lyrics writ­ten by ECMA nom­i­nee Yvette d’En­tremont) and both song ver­sions fea­ture an iden­ti­cal, mov­ing, con­tem­po­rary ar­range­ment, as well as the Con­fed­er­a­tion Cen­tre Youth Cho­rus, un­der the di­rec­tion of Don­ald Fraser.

“‘We Love You, Canada’ is an ex­cep­tional, up­lift­ing and cre­ative com­pan­ion to our Na­tional An­them, and will be heard through­out our coun­try’s 150th an­niver­sary sea­son on na­tional and re­gional Cana­dian ra­dio sta­tions and tele­vi­sion pro­grams and also in­ter­na­tion­ally,” a news re­lease states.

Both ‘We Love You, Canada’ and ‘Nous T’Ai­mons, Canada’ is avail­able on iTunes, Ama­zon. com, and all ma­jor web stores.

For the con­ve­nience of broad­cast­ers, a me­dia copy as well as 15 sec­ond and 30 sec­ond cue are also avail­able upon re­quest.

Melzer’s first suc­cess­ful record re­lease as a pro­ducer was a pop ver­sion of Bobby Gimby’s song ‘Canada’, which was re­leased in 1967 for Canada’s Cen­ten­nial.

Through­out his long and pres­ti­gious ca­reer in the mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment busi­ness, An­drew has col­lab­o­rated with many artists of note, in­clud­ing Norm Ama­dio, Tommy Am­brose, Doug Ri­ley, Bob Price and more.
