What's in the Case?

Featured in this case is the blue sequin jumpsuit made memorable by Feist in the iconic 1234 music video. The song and video made a significant impact in popular culture when it was released in 2007. The video was used in an Apple Music television commercial and as the official music video of the breakout single. The success of the song brought global attention and even brought Feist to Sesame Street where she sang a version of the song (with muppet penguins and monsters and such!) that helped young viewers learn how to count. That video has been seen by close to a billion viewers online since its release.

Feist and Massey Hall

Feist has performed at Massey Hall regularly since 2007 and her acclaimed album The Reminder. She has also been a surprise guest to several artists, including Peaches, the 1st annual Dream Serenade benefit concert, Wilco, and Grizzly Bear, to name a few. But perhaps one of the most special appearances came as part of the JUNO Awards 50th anniversary live television broadcast, when she sang "It's a Good Life If You Don't Weaken" with The Tragically Hip. The performance marked the first time the band played publicly after the death of lead singer Gord Downie and was widely seen as a moving and fitting tribute to the band's legacy as they excepted the Walt Grealis Humanitarian Award.
