About the Founder

Errol Lee is a multi-award winning singer-songwriter and advocate for youth. He grew up in very difficult and challenging circumstances; however, he uses those experiences as lessons in how to live a life of integrity, lessons he shares with elementary, secondary, college, university, community and business audiences across Canada.  

His unique performance style seamlessly weaves singing and dancing into a comprehensive educational experience specifically designed to present a meaningful message about the importance of showing good character. Errol is also the founder of Caring Concerts Not For Profit. Caring Concerts are multi-sensory presentations that use music, movement, media and visual communication strategies to provide audiences with opportunities to sing along to the songs, dance to the music and be inspired to care about others and the environment. Errol’s ability to captivate and motivate audiences of all ages transcends the cool barrier and effectively communicates his belief that each person is uniquely and inherently valuable.  Errol is a devoted husband and loving father of two gifted girls and three talented boys.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH THROUGH SONG

“We Care” was used to promote the City of Vaughan’s Peace Tree Festival during which children and their families celebrate peace and diversity.  It was also used for a televised PSA for Project CODE so children everywhere can reach their full potential

“Better Place”, “The Golden Rule” and “Reaching Out to You” were scored by Sistema Toronto and performed during a fundraising event.  This aided in their mission to provide free ensemble-based music lessons to students and expand their program into the Toronto District School Board’s Yorkwoods P.S.
