They may not have received any JUNO nominations this year but Montreal band Simple Plan will be receiving the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award. After establishing The Simple Plan Foundation, more than a quarter-million dollars has been raised and donated to youth-centered charities to assist young people with life-threatening illnesses. Last fall, Simple Plan performed a benefit concert with the Monteral Symphony Orchestra.
Simple Plan won the JUNO Fan Choice Award back in 2006. The band has sold over 7 million records worldwide and has scored ten Top 20 singles.
