Canadian pop singer and songwriter, Adil C has been writing music since he was eight years old. The Ontario-based artist has been recognized by notable industry insiders, including Addison Rae, Sheri Nicole, Drake Bell, Alec Chambers, Tiagz, Scooter Braun, and Braun’s extensive artist portfolio.
Released the day after Canada Day, the music video also pays tribute to his home country as Adil sings and dances through the gorgeous landscapes of Ontario, Canada; a Canadian’s true paradise.
“We’re In Paradise” is sure to be this summer’s anthem, as it is about understanding the struggles of dealing with problems alone but trusting the process and having faith that what’s to come is going to be incredible. The song expresses how people are magnificent beings, just like the stars above us, and when they come into harmony, suddenly they are in Paradise.
Backed by Pencils of Promise (PoP), a nonprofit organization that builds schools and increases educational opportunities in the developing world, “We’re In Paradise” is a perfect start to what will hopefully be a COVID-19-free summer. Founded by Adam Braun, brother to Hollywood’s Scooter Braun, PoP has educational programs in Laos, Guatemala, and Ghana. The name itself came from Braun’s travels on the Semester At Sea study abroad program back in March 2005. In October 2008, he established the charity with the aim of providing quality education to children in some of the most underserved countries around the world.
“PoP has been a huge part of my music journey so far,” Adil told True Hollywood Talk. “I’ve been working with charities for more than 5 years. I’ve always wanted to involve charity work with my music as well. Connecting with Pencils of Promise has been such a great way to provide awareness to fans and listeners about the good we can all achieve by coming together and contributing.
“At Pencils of Promise, we believe in the power of individuals to make an impact with the resources they have,” Leslie Engle Young, Chief Operating Officer at PoP told True Hollywood Talk. “From our origins in 2008 through today, our organization thrives on individuals who activate their communities to support our work. We love Adil C’s work, and we are honored he has chosen to use his talent to amplify PoP’s mission of quality education for all.”
