Serena Ryder returns to the Harbourfront Centre Concert Stage 20 years to the date of her debut, winning six JUNO awards and capturing the hearts of millions in the time between. Ryder is joined by high energy – cross genre rock, gospel and country artist Tanika Charles!
About Tanika Charles
Formerly the best-kept secret in soul music, Toronto-based Tanika Charles has become a known genre staple both at home and abroad. Her music revels in honesty and attitude, her live show is high energy and endearing, and she continues to win audiences over one stream, one Shazam and one encore at a time.
Backed by her band, The Wonderfuls, Charles has embarked on five international tours across nine countries since releasing Soul Run, including 70+ headlining performances. Together they oscillate between faithful recreations of her studio recordings and cross genre nods to rock, gospel and country influences. In 2019 she had the honour of being named the inaugural Polaris Artist-in-Residence for 2020 at the Studio Bell National Music Centre.
