It was White’s second year volunteering to perform for the charity event, and she also donated a half hour performance to be auctioned off at the fundraiser.

The performance went for $475.

“It’s for a really good cause, obviously I want to be a part of that,” said White.

White also has a family connection to the Vancouver Children’s Hospital. Her sister broke her leg a couple of years ago and the family spent a month at the hospital and then was in and out of the hospital for two more months for further treatments.

“The ward we were in was fantastic,” said White.

She said the staff were very helpful and made the family feel at home, “which was nice because hospitals can be scary.”

White is back in Fort St. James after being in Edmonton, Alberta for a couple months to record an album. She is hoping to tour B.C. to promote the album, once it is done being produced.

She recently released the first single off the album. The single is the album’s title song: Other Woman.

She expects the entire album to be ready to release by November.
