On July 1st 2015, Natasha held a live Facebook event where people could ask her anything. One of the questions Natasha answered was “Who is your favourite singer?” Her reply was MacKenzie Porter.
Little did Natasha know that one of the participants in that Facebook event knew somebody, who knew somebody – well, long story short, days later Natasha received a phone call from MacKenzie Porter! That phone call led to text exchanges until one day MacKenzie came to Calgary to meet Natasha face to face. They went out for dinner and then roller skating. Not sure who struggled more on the roller skates, but they had a great time!
They continued to stay in touch, and on October 3 2015, Natasha and her friend Sophie (who had introduced MacKenzie’s music to Natasha) went to MacKenzie’s concert in Medicine Hat. Natasha, and Sophie, ended up on stage and had a great time of it.
After Natasha passed, we asked MacKenzie if she’d be willing to do a cover of Natasha’s song. She didn’t hesitate. We just posted it on Natasha’s Youtube channel and we hope you enjoy it.
Thank you Justine Tyrell and MacKenzie Porter for doing covers of “This Love is Magic”. Please look for opportunities to perform Natasha’s song, and helping spread Natasha’s message about more needing to be done to treat and cure childhood cancer.
