What I Wouldn’t Do/North Star Calling” – a star-studded anthem in support of Feel Out LoudKids Help Phone’s largest youth mental health movement in Canadian history, is out now. Over 50 Canadian artists united across the country to form the musical collective Feel Out Loud, with the sole purpose of amplifying the conversation around mental health and empowering young people to feel out loud.

Kids Help Phone is transforming mental health care for young people in Canada and is asking Canadians to support Feel Out Loud, a $300M campaign to unlock hope for young people in Canada to thrive in their world.

Many youth across the country are in crisis, facing issues that are more complex than ever. Common concerns include anxiety and stress, relationships, depression, and suicide – issues no one should have to navigate alone.  The campaign is aimed at providing young people support without obstacles and help with any hardship. Because no challenge is too big, and no feeling is too small.

Youth are struggling more than we even know.


An advocate for mental health within the music community and beyond, Serena Ryder’s song “What I Wouldn’t Do” weaves an inspiring message and profound lyrics, alongside Leela Gilday’s sonically beautiful bridge from “North Star Calling” to create the anthem, which was produced by Bob Ezrin and Randy Lennox

Artist representation and collaboration spans provinces, territories, and cities from coast to coast to coast, representing a diverse group of talent, with the equitable, informative, and creative intention of reaching underserved and equity-deserving youth across the country and within all communities.

The anthem brings together Canada’s best and brightest young talent including Alessia Cara, JESSIA, Johnny Orlando, JP Saxe, Rêve, Roy Woods, The Reklaws, TOBi, Tyler Shaw and many more, and includes the moving and powerful addition of children’s choirs from both the Sarah McLachlan School of Music and Chief Jimmy Bruneau School.
