Junos 2013: Tom Cochrane to receive Allan Waters Humanitarian Award

Musician Tom Cochrane is this year’s recipient of the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award to be presented at the Juno Awards in April.

Recognizing artists whose contributions have enhanced the social fabric of Canada, Cochrane has supported a wide variety of initiatives from World Vision to Parkinson’s disease research. He has visited Africa eight times and Asia twice on behalf of World Vision.

As well, he’s visited Canadian troops in Afghanistan and raised money for tsunami-relief efforts.

“ … It’s an odd thing to receive an award for trying to do the right things when those things have presented themselves in the light of the tremendous blessings I have received in my life and career,” he said in a written statement. “Every day my fans, family and friends get up and many of them do the right things for other people and the good of our world and country without getting acknowledged. So I share this with you.”
