A What's Up? Exclusive Interview and Not-to-Miss Weekend Events

"We Can". What was originally composed in hopes of motivating people to run ended up meaning much more to countless people than anticipated. The song had reached an elementary school in Vancouver, which asked if he’d come sing the song for their school … and so began “The We Can Project,” which has spread across North America. Jesse began touring the country, visiting schools and inspiring students to always go after their dreams.
Just when everything was looking up, Jesse was about to face an unexpected challenge. At the age of 26, Jesse was diagnosed with Lyme’s Disease. Two years without music … two years without performing … two years without anything but hope.
Take a look into what the artist had to say about his incredible journey (full interview).
