Award-Winning Canadian Actor Aiden Cumming-Teicher Stars In The Upcoming Feature Film "Beyond The Sun"
Vancouver's own Aiden Cumming-Teicher has had a dazzling start to the new year! In addition to a starring role in the upcoming feature film "Beyond the Sun" which was shot on location in Argentina, he just received several award nominations. Aiden's recent film performances have earned him a 2017 Young Entertainer Award nomination in the category of Best Young Actor 11 and Under - Short Film for "Always There" and a 2017 Young Artist Award nomination in the category of Best Performance in a Short Film - Young Actor for his role in "Always There." Aiden's other feature films include Dan Starling’s art film “The Chorus” and Pristine Entertainment’s “The Glove.”
Aiden has enjoyed performing since he was a toddler. He has been described as an enthusiastic professional with a wonderful sense of humour, qualities that have helped him thrive in the television and film industry. Aiden initially began training in musical theater, but loved his first experience on a film set so much that he shifted direction. He began taking on camera-acting classes at the age of nine and has appeared in numerous short films, including the role of 'Clem' in the film "Lou,” the lead role in "In Hiding,” “Always There,” “Lee’s Choice,” “Thumbs Up,” “Book Box,” “Jeremy Tanner is a Sicko,” “The Sock Paradox,” and “Written.”
Aiden has trained in acting with Athena Russell, Julian LeBlanc, Josette Jorge and Jeff Gonek, and audition coaching with Laura Adkin and Sarah-Jane Redmond. He has also branched into voice acting and studies voice actor training with Brent Halfyard at Halfyard Productions. Aiden received 2015 Joey Award nominations for his voiceover work in the animated short film "Written” and for his performance in “Lou.” He was also nominated for a 2016 Joey Award for his role in “Always There.” Aiden won the 2016 Young Entertainer Award for "Lou."
Aiden is also passionate about bringing awareness to rare forms of cancer due to a very personal experience. When Aiden was only 7-years-old, his mom was diagnosed with stage 4-Appendix Cancer. Thankfully she survived and is now cancer-free, but at the time it was especially challenging. Together, Aiden and his mom wrote a children’s picture book named "Bellybuttonless" to help other families going through it. The book has helped countless families, has been used by people in international support groups and a .pdf version of the book is available for download online at no cost. Aiden won the “Most Inspiring Story” award at the 2016 Everiathing Wall of Stars Awards Night in Vancouver in acknowledgment of his dedication and charitable work in this area.
Aiden is a quick study and enjoys school very much, especially science and technology. His favourite subjects are physics (particularly quantum physics) and advanced math. He speaks basic French and Spanish and his hobbies include fishing, horseback riding, taekwondo and water polo.

Vancouver Musician Ranj Singh Gives Voice to People Affected by Brain Injury With His New Single "I'm Still Me"
Vancouver's Ranjit Singh (a.k.a. Ranj) makes music with a distinct Indian-Western flair that draws on the singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist's love for rock music and heartfelt lyrics. He refers to his unique blend of music as “Indo-Canadian Folk." His new single "I'm Still Me" is helping to raise awareness about Acquired Brain Injury and has given a voice to those who struggle with ABI and other related diagnoses. After the song's first debut, Ranj was inundated with feedback and gratitude from people affected by brain injury saying “That is exactly how I feel, thank you.”
Ranj began working with Semiahmoo House Society ABIS (Acquired Brain Injury Services) in November of 2015. Often told that his music is "soothing and relaxing," Ranj asked ABIS manager Sylvia Hoeree about the possibility of playing music for the people they serve. She was so enthusiastic that he was soon scheduled to perform for several groups of people, many of whom also became his friends.
Shortly after Ranj started, he came up with an idea to write a song together and people were eager to share their amazing and courageous stories about what life was like before, and the changes they have faced following their injury. Ranj notes that "sometimes people see the elderly or someone in a wheelchair or a walker and automatically assume they will be difficult to communicate with," which is often not the case. The common theme and powerful message that everyone shared was “I’m still me”.
While writing the song, two of Ranj's friends at ABIS passed away unexpectedly. Deeply affected by their passing and desperately trying to deal with the loss that everyone was feeling, Ranj scrapped the original song and started all over. The night before his first debut in June of 2016 at a Fraser Health award ceremony, Ranj finished writing the final version of the song "I’m Still Me.”
Following the event, Ranj and ABIS began to discuss how the song might be recorded and shared with others. Sylvia Hoeree approached Blue Frog Studios in White Rock and requested their assistance. Kelly Breaks, the owner at Blue Frog Studios. Kelly took the idea to a whole new level, not just by offering a recording opportunity but a LIVE recording with everyone being part of the video and song recording. Ranj is extremely grateful to Kelly, Jon, Pat and Claire of Blue Frog Studios, and emphasizes that this would not have happened without their support and amazing kindness. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved and the video speaks for itself.
"We truly believe this song has power to spread awareness and the potential to share an important message for those people that are often misunderstood as a result of injury or illness...'I’m still me.' Since the video was released the feedback we have received has been overwhelming and we have heard from families of people that have been affected by Alzheimer’s Dementia, MS and Brain Injury. We have also heard from senior citizens who are deeply touched by the song even though their memory may be intact." ~ Ranj Singh & Sylvia Hoeree
"The people at Semiahmoo House Society ABIS have forever changed my life," says Ranj." They are brave, courageous, and humble at times, but always full of love and determination. I would like to encourage everyone to get involved in some small way."
Ranj has also just completed The Man Cold, an acoustic album (his third) featuring his signature melodies and distinctive “up-stroke” riffs from his 12-string guitar. Learn more about Ranj and his music at his official sites below.
