Sing for Sainte-Justine with Céline Dion contest, voting is now closed

Voting for the Sing for Sainte-Justine with Céline Dion contest is now closed. Our heartfelt thanks go out to our singers, choir directors, parents and voters who gave their all to make this “harmonious” initiative come to life. Your tireless fundraising efforts and your touching dedication to the cause have been the driving forces behind the success of this initiative.

The funds raised as a result of the commitment of our 174 participating choirs and the public’s outstanding generosity will go to supporting research and promoting healthcare excellence in Canada’s largest mother-child university hospital centre.

We are delighted to congratulate our first-place winners, Externat Mont-Jésus-Marie from Montreal, who garnered an impressive 18,027 votes thanks to their skilful fundraising efforts. They have earned the honour of singing with Céline Dion! It’s now up to the contest judges to pick a second choir from the top 25 to join them.
