Capri Everitt does. And 79 others. In their native tongues.
And the little 10-year-old with a big voice is about to embark on a globe-spanning tour, where she’ll perform them all in order to raise money for kids in need.
Earlier tonight, Drex chatted with Capri and her dad Tom to find out what the journey is all about.
For the kids
The family says the 80-country adventure is a twist on Jules Verne’s classic story Around the World in 80 Days. But the mission isn’t about exploring, it’s about raising money for SOS Childen’s Villages, a charity dedicated to raising the standard of living for children in developing countries.
The Vancouver singer says the first stop after they take off tomorrow morning will be the nation’s capital. And naturally, she’s excited.
“In Ottawa, I was invited to sing at the Parliament buildings. [I’ll perform for] 200 school children, and it’s celebrating universal children’s day which is November 19th.”
From there, it’s off to the Dominican republic, then Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Carnegie Hall in New York, and the rest of the world.
Her dad Tom says the response has been incredible.
“Even the department of foreign affairs wants to chat with us while we’re in Ottawa.”
Mission of inspiration
Capri is no stranger to to insipration. She’s been singing since she was five, and was invited this year to perform and speak at We Day.
She says performing to a crowd of 20,000 was a thrill.
“It was great! It was amazing, it was so much fun it was so inspirational.”
They’ve even built in an interactive map so people can follow along on the adventure.
