Shania to visit Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt


Shania Twain to tour CFB Esquimalt on Thursday

CTV Vancouver Island News | April, 18, 2018

The reigning queen of country-pop music is paying a surprise visit to a Victoria naval base.

Shania Twain will meet with sailors, soldiers and air men and women at CFB Esquimalt on Thursday, the base said in a news release.

The release says that Twain will experience the Canadian Armed Forces as she sets foot on the flight deck of HMCS Ottawa before touring the vessel.

"A tour of a submarine, as well as a brief familiarization with army vehicles and equipment will follow," CFB Esquimalt said.

The event takes place from 1 to 2 p.m. and media have been invited to cover the flight deck visit.

Twain has been making the media rounds in recent months to promote her first studio album in 15 years, Now, with an appearance on "The Today Show" and as a judge on "RuPaul's Drag Race".

She is also embarking on a world tour starting May 3, with a May 5 date set for Vancouver.

Shania Twain arrives at CFB Esquimalt for a music video film shoot

First look: Canadian music star Shania Twain arrives at CFB Esquimalt to shoot promotional footage, and possible segments of a music video.

***I assume it's for the song "Soldier". But is it an actual music video to release "Soldier" as a single? Or is it a video to use in her concert?

Apparently Shania is releasing "Soldier" as a single.

Shania Twain visits Canadian Armed Forces base in B.C.

Canadian country icon thanks members of CFB Esquimalt for their service

By Kristyn Anthony | Victoria News | April 19, 2018

Canadian country icon Shania Twain paid a visit to CFB Esquimalt Thursday to thank members of the Canadian Armed Forces for their service and to promote her new single, “Soldier.”

The two-time Grammy Award-winner called the new song – featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming war drama, Thank You For Your Service – a “very emotional expression.” (Thank You For Your Service was released in October and "Soldier" is not on the soundtrack. The song was featured in a trailer preview that was shown inside movie theaters.)

“I wrote the song about the heartbreak of saying a sad goodbye to a loved one that is heading off, and with the feeling of never being certain they would ever return,” she told the crowd.

Twain arrived from downtown Victoria by zodiac boat to board the HMCS Ottawa where she toured the ship, and mingled with the crowd to sign autographs and pose for photos.

“Who’s not a Shania fan?” joked CFB Esquimalt base commander Capt. Jason Boyd, who was excited to meet the woman whose albums he remembers waiting in line for while he was in military college.

“It truly speaks to what kind of character she has and the support that she shows for what it is that we do, and the appreciation she shows,” he said of her visit to the base. “So we’re here today to show that appreciation back.”

With 100 million records sold worldwide, Shania Twain is the best-selling female Canadian artist in country music history, and one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

The Timmins, Ontario native released her fifth album Now in September 2017 and her tour of the same name kicks off next month, with two shows slated for Vancouver, May 5 and 6.

‘Man, I feel like a sailor’: Shania Twain pays visit to HMCS Ottawa at CFB Esquimalt

By Richard Watts | Times Colonist | April 19, 2018

Canadian country-music superstar Shania Twain emerged on the helicopter deck of HMCS Ottawa at CFB Esquimalt Thursday to thank members of the Canadian Armed Forces for their service and sacrifice.

The appearance before 150 men and women from the Canadian Forces and guests from New Zealand highlighted her song, Soldier, from her latest album, Now.

The song’s lyrics are the reassuring words of a soldier’s loved one. “You’re not alone when you dream, I’m with you. I hear your heart when it beats, I feel it too.”

“I shed a lot of tears during the writing of this song,” Twain told her audience. “It made me very emotional to think about those who are out there braving loneliness and feeling very far away.”

“I do hope you all take it literally,” she said, sounding a little overcome at times. “Not that it should make you sad but I hope it inspires you to know you are loved and appreciated.”

Now, her 2017 studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the sales charts in Canada, making hers the highest chart debut in Canada by any artist last year.

The album also topped the Billboard charts in the U.S., U.K., and Australia. Twain is the top-selling female country artist of all time, with a string of hits that includes Any Man of Mine, That Don’t Impress Me Much, You’re Still the One, and Man! I Feel Like A Woman!

Twain, who was raised in the northeastern Ontario town of Timmins, was clearly a hit with all the service people gathered on HMCS Ottawa’s flight deck.

“When I first joined the navy and I was in basic training that was the CD we always played, Shania Twain,” said Chief Petty Officer 2nd Class Yannick Gagne, originally from Saguenay Lac-Saint-Jean, in Quebec.

Royal Canadian Air Force Cpl. Amanda Viveash said her warrant officer asked her several days ago if she just happened to like Shania Twain.

“I said ‘Heck, yes,’ and he put my name down and two days later, here I am,” said Viveash. “She was the very first CD I ever got back when I was a pre-teen, The Woman in Me.”

“She’s Canadian, she’s got an awesome personality, she’s gorgeous and she makes great music,” she said.

Twain clearly also has fans around the world, proven by the reactions of about 12 sailors from the Royal New Zealand Navy.

The Kiwi sailors are part of a skeleton crew in Victoria tending to the New Zealand frigate HMNZS Te Kaha, which is entering Victoria Shipyards for a refit.

Petty Officer Candi Fox, from Auckland, New Zealand, said her mum listens to Shania Twain all the time and that meant she has grown up with Twain’s songs. “As a kid you listen to what [your parents] listen to,” said Fox. “As a kid, coming home in the car with her songs blasting away I would ask ‘Who is this?’ ”

Twain, a five-time Grammy Award winner, starts her upcoming tour in Tacoma, Washington on May 3, followed by a pair of dates at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on May 5 and 6.

The tour is Twain’s first extended string of dates since her 2015 performances, which included two concerts at Victoria’s Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre. Twain had said in 2015 that she was retiring from touring, but has since changed her mind.

She's looking a lot older in these pics. Perhaps it is just way too much face filler; which tends to have the opposite effect....
