There has been a lot happening in Montreal lately. Yesterday was Canada Day so there were lots of celebrations all across the country. July 1 is also the day when many people move to new apartments in the province of Quebec. Many leases (the aggreements between owner and renter) finish at the end of June.
But before that, on June 30, there was a lot of excitement in Montreal. The Jazz Festival began with an opening performance, free for all, in the heart of the city (downtown). This year the opening performance got everyone’s attention. This year Stevie Wonder played a free concert outside. There was some rain, but still thousands of people waited outside for hours for the show to begin. Here is an article about it in the local English newspaper.
I looked around youtube to find a video of the concert for you. The video below is not the best quality but it is one of Stevie Wonder’s most famous songs. And it is also super fun when the chorus (the repeated part of a song) comes and everyone sings along!
