Slow No Tempo Is Going Virtual For Their Third Annual Singing Valentines

Slow No Tempo Is Going Virtual For Their Third Annual Singing Valentines

January 19, 2021 at 10:22 am  Community, Entertainment, Kamloops

The a cappella quartet Slow No Tempo will once again be spreading messages of love and caring with their third annual Singing Valentines fundraiser. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it will be a purely virtual experience.

Instead of the traditional experience of four well-dressed men arriving at the recipient’s home or work to deliver the musical message of love and caring, anyone who orders a Singing Valentine will receive a video that they can show to their special someone. “We wanted to make sure we continued our Singing Valentines somehow this year, and this is the most responsible way we can continue to spread the love without potentially spreading the virus,” says quartet member Ryan Noakes. “It’s definitely not the ideal way to deliver a valentine, but we feel it’s better than not doing it at all. Messages of love and caring are perhaps more important now than ever before.”

Because the special people in our lives are not the only ones who deserve a little love, Slow No Tempo selects a different local charity each year to support with their fundraiser. The charity chosen for 2021 is the BC Wildlife Park, which has been connecting people to BC’s wildlife and wild places to encourage a sustainable society within a healthy natural environment since 1966. The funds raised by the Singing Valentines will assist them with the ongoing costs associated with the caring of some of British Columbia’s iconic wildlife.

For 2021, the price has been reduced to $40. When ordering a valentine there are two song options; the “old school” barbershop medley of Let Me Call You Sweetheart/Heart Of My Heart or the more contemporary song I Want It That Way. Order your Singing Valentine by filling out the form at kamloopsvalentines.com, by calling 250-318-2978, or by e-mailing quartet@slownotempo.ca. All Singing Valentines orders must be received and paid for by 7:30 pm on Friday, February 12.

A Singing Valentine is an excellent way to show that special someone in your life how much you care for them. Singing Valentines are also a fun way to let a parent, grandparent, sibling, cousin, friend, coworker, team member, etc. know that they are important to you.

Slow No Tempo was formed in the fall of 2018 by Alexander Bell, Ryan Noakes, Graham Specht, and Simon Walter. For more information about the singing valentines, go to kamloopsvalentines.com.
