Céline Dion, Shania Twain, Bryan Adams, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Alessia Cara are among the top Canadian performers joining together for Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble, a Canadian pandemic charity benefit set for next weekend.

A joint project from networks Bell Media, CBC/Radio-Canada, Corus Entertainment, Groupe V Média and Rogers Sports & Media, the show will salute Canadian front-line staff across various industries working in the fight against the coronavirus.

The upcoming one-hour, commercial-free event is also a fundraiser for Food Banks Canada, which supports the local food banks across the nation that are seeing an uptake in demand at the same time as needed volunteers dwindle amid the pandemic.

“Frontline workers, across so many sectors including food banking, have been drastically impacted by COVID-19,” Chris Hatch, CEO of Food Banks Canada, said in a statement.
