When Jian Ghomeshi launched his book 1982 at Toronto's Opera House, he joined his friends the Arkells on stage and treated the rest of his gathered friends and family to something we don't get to hear much any more: his singing voice. For many a fan of CBC Radio One's Q that Jian hosts, it would have been quite the treat to hear.
Sadly, not many did get to hear it. But now, your wish has been granted, and you have the marvellous Serena Ryder to thank. The first Canadian artist to hit the top spot on the CBC Radio 2 Top 20 with Stompa joined Mr. Ghomeshi in studio at the end of last week. Unbeknownst to Jian, Serena had a plan. She asked him to join her on one of her numbers - the beautiful Please, Baby Please - and he duly obliged. You can watch their performance below:
