Katharine McPhee and David Foster attended the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards (GGPAA) in Ottawa, Canada on May 28. David received a Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award. He was one of the seven Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards laureates. The GGPAA’s are Canada’s highest honour in the performing arts.

Before the show, Kat and David hit the red carpet with members of GGPAA’s board of directors.

Fans were excited to see Kat and David arriving at the red carpet:

During the event, Katharine showed up on stage and sang “Something to Shout About” in honor of her husband. The song is from David’s upcoming Betty Boop musical.

Before Katharine hit the stage, a short film honoring David Foster was shown to the audience. It was made by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and directed by Teresa Alfeld. Needless to say, they loved it!

Katharine posted a small preview of her entrance on stage:
