Charity Song of the Month

TOM COCHRANE "Big League (For Humboldt)," 2018

Posted on April 24, 2018

When the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team's tragic bus crash in rural Saskatchewan left 16 players and support staff dead on April 6 it struck close to home for Canadian musician Tom Cochrane. In 1988 Cochrane scored a massive rock hit with "Big League," a song written from the perspective of a grieving parent of a promising hockey player who lost their son in a highway car crash. Now Cochrane has re-recorded the song as "Big League (For Humboldt)" as a tribute to those who lost their lives. Universal Music says proceeds from the song will go to the Humboldt Strong Community Foundation, which has been set up to support the victims of the crash. Buy it here. — Aaron Brophy
