    An excerpt from that article (below) so it seems Edmonton has done something right here. Impressive that this girl is willing to give credit to others for her talent and success.

    After her Juno win, Berhe said music instruction in classrooms is crucial for supporting young musicians.

    "I think that is where it all begins," she said. "None of us would be here if we didn't have that education in music.

    "I think that's how we preserve the importance of playing your instruments and writing your songs, is starting with the youth."

    How many Edmonton artists have a US Top 40 hit to their credit? The list is pretty short. She should be proud.
    “Son, one day this will be an iconic structure shaping Edmonton’s skyline.”
