“So many friends will sing you this song, Welcome Justin Pierre…”

Celebrated Canadian Entertainer Dinah Christie has re-released her song Justin Pierre to coincide with Justin Trudeau being sworn in as the 30th Prime Minister of Canada, this Wednesday, November 4, 2015.



“The day after Justin Pierre was born, on December 26, 1971, I wrote a sort of welcome, lullaby to him. A few years earlier I had been doing concerts to raise money for Pierre Trudeau’s campaign fund. He loved the arts and we were friends”, reflects Christie. “Originally the song was supposed to be just for me. But then in 1972 Molson Canada decided to hold a competition for the best song written by any Canadian… Ian Tyson and I were both asked to record ‘I Can Hear Canada Singing’, written by Russell Thornberry, along with our own songs as B-sides. Ian chose one of his own tunes and I chose ‘Justin Pierre’ for mine. Soon after, someone sent a copy of it to the Trudeaus”.

Dinah Christie is best known for her work on CBC Television with This Hour Has Seven Days (1965), as a performer on the TV series Party Game (1970–1980), Check it Out! (1985–1988) and most recently, “Paddlesong”, a play written by Dinah Christie, with Tom Hill, about E. Pauline Johnson, the famed Mohawk poet from the late1800’s.

Justin Pierre can be downloaded on iTunes for only $0.99.
