Over the past few years I have used many of MCpl Elton Adams songs in our videos on our YouTube Channel and now he is doing something special for our Veterans. The Canadian Veterans Advocacy Homeless Veterans Program has a mission called “Pennies For Veterans” and Elton Adams is going to be donating 50% of every album sold onhttp://www.eltonadams.com/ to this program.
The Canadian Veterans Advocacy, is a modern veterans advocacy supported by thousands of Canadian soldiers, veterans and patriots who believe that supporting our troops during these times of war often means more than just wearing Red on Friday. It is our patriotic duty to advocate on behalf of Canada’s Sons and Daughters and equally important, stand diligently on guard to ensure that our disabled veterans are accorded the very best in quality of care and financial compensation from our parliament should they be injured or wounded in the course of battle. Last year, on November 6, the 1st Canadian Veterans National Day of Protest, a nationwide event where in thousands of veterans participated, was organized through this advocacy.
MCpl Elton Adams was born and raised in Roddickton, Newfoundland, Canada. At the age of seventeen Elton Adam enrolled in the Canadian Forces. During his first six years was employed with the First Royal Canadian Horse Artillery in Shilo Manitoba. While serving with this Regiment worked in both B and C batteries and ventured to Bosnia on Roto 7. It was also at this time he started to write his own music.
While with the Artillery he played and sang for the troops all of the time. In Bosnia his band, “Guns and Hose’s”(this was our band name because the Artillery had the big-guns and we practiced in a Fire hall—hose’s) opened up for the CANCON show. Domestically, he had a band called, Dirty Laundry and performed for almost all of the Regiments functions, private parties, and local bars.
On December 29th, 2009 We hosted a live show at the Kensington Legion which was streamed live to members of Thankasoldier.net via Ustream. you can watch the entire concert BY CLICKING HERE
