CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Multiple award-nominated composer and producer, Andrew A. Melzer, who resides on P.E.I., released his new, independent single recording “We Love You, Canada” – “Nous t’aimons, Canada” this past Friday.

It features the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus, under the direction of Donald Fraser.  


The song lyrics have been created in both of our country’s official languages (with French lyrics written by ECMA nominee Yvette d’Entremont) and both song versions feature an identical, moving, contemporary arrangement, as well as the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus, under the direction of Donald Fraser.

“ ‘We Love You, Canada’ is an exceptional, uplifting and creative companion to our National Anthem, and will be heard throughout our country’s 150th anniversary season on national and regional Canadian radio stations and television programs and also internationally,” a news release states.

Both ‘We Love You, Canada’ and ‘Nous T’Aimons, Canada’ is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and all major web stores.

For the convenience of broadcasters, a media copy as well as 15 second and 30 second cue are also available upon request.

Melzer’s first successful record release as a producer was a pop version of Bobby Gimby’s song ‘Canada’, which was released in 1967 for Canada’s Centennial.

 Throughout his long and prestigious career in the music and entertainment business, Andrew has collaborated with many artists of note, including Norm Amadio, Tommy Ambrose, Doug Riley, Bob Price and more.

Recently, Andrew received three American Songwriting Award nominations, and an ECMA nomination for producer of the year. He’s currently writing ‘Island Wedding – The Musical’.
