Sing Out for CHEO is more than just a charity event! This event is recognized as an official CHEO Foundation fundraiser that over the past four years has grown to include a fantastic silent auction, with prizes given by local merchants and this year a local Artist/Band Music Competition.
Danny Sylvestre is the founder and organizer for the Sing Out for CHEO event. He had his life dramatically altered when his daughter was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy by the doctors at CHEO. Without the care and support provided by CHEO to both his daughter, and to himself as a young parent, both of their lives could have been negatively affected. Through the surgeries, the therapies and the countless late night visits, the specialists at CHEO patiently carried them through every kind of healing process. Today, she is vibrant testimony to just some of the vital services that CHEO provides.
For the fourth year, Danny is the CHEO Ambassador for this event and an Ottawa Valley based singer/songwriter, in partnership with Ottawa New Country 94, Tim Tierney/Ottawa Councillor, Sound Check Entertainment, Gallant Media, and Freedom Music and with the help of a great team of devoted volunteers and local sponsors.
“Sing out for CHEO” is giving three (3) lucky artists the chance to also perform at this great event, and raise money for the CHEO Foundation for family-centered children patient care facilities in Ottawa and the Outaouais region!

WITH SPECIAL GUEST
In 2015 Danny released “Tailgate Songs”, which garnered enough attention in Nashville that it was posted in the 58th Annual Grammy Awards first round list under Category 26 Best Country Solo Performance for new vocal or instrumental solo country recordings. Not bad for a small town boy with English as his second language.
In 2017 Danny released “I Quit!”. It is as boisterous as his previous work, and just as fun.
You’ve heard his music on Television starring actors like Kevin Nealon, or pro athletes like Chris Bosh & Arnold Palmer.
His original tunes have been recorded by other artists, or used for podcasts, mobile apps and commercials airing daily throughout North America.
