OTTAWA, ON, Dec. 16, 2020

OTTAWA, ON, Dec. 16, 2020 /CNW/ - Well-known Franco-Ontarian musician and social media sensation Damien Robitaille will join Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, for a virtual discussion on Thursday, December 17, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. EST (English) and 2:30 p.m. (French). During these 30-minute GGconversations, the Governor General and her guest will talk about his experiences as a Canadian musician and will answer questions from viewers. Mr. Robitaille will also perform a few short selections of music live during the conversation.

Damien Robitaille recently made news when his one-man band version of Technotronic's "Pump up the Jam" went viral on social media with over 10 million views. This is only the latest in a string of musical successes for Mr. Robitaille who, since 2006, has released 5 studio albums and normally keeps a busy touring calendar. The multi-instrumentalist has been performing his unique blend of "groovy music with funk, rocksteady, pop and soul accents, [and] a touch of 70s retro-kitsch" since he was a child growing up in Lafontaine, Ontario.

We invite you to submit questions for the Governor General and her guest to rsvp2@gg.ca or by using the live chat feature during the conversation. We want to hear from you!

English live stream and simultaneous interpretation will be available at https://www.gg.ca/en/ggconversations and on the @GGJuliePayette YouTube and Facebook accounts.

French live stream and simultaneous interpretation will be available at https://www.gg.ca/fr/ggconversations and on the @GGJuliePayette YouTube and Facebook accounts.
