The Toronto Transportation Commission’s audition process for buskers must be impossible because Canadian singer Chantal Kreviazuk had to busk outside a subway station yesterday.
Kreviazuk wasn’t busking for money for herself, the singer was doing it as a promotion for Maxwell House Coffee, the National Post reports.
From 8 until 9 a.m., Kreviazuk sang at a piano outside of Eglinton subway station while commuters were given free cups of coffee from the folks at Maxwell House.
In exchange for the free coffee, people were asked to donate their change for Habitat for Humanity.
“We should all do a little bit more, and that’s what all this is about is talking about doing some good, brewing some good, helping people in need, and really extending a hand out and in the case of habitat for humanity we talk about a hand up,” David Hughes, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity, said to City News.
