While some people dream of becoming artists their entire lives, others take action and end up pursuing brilliant careers. Such is the case of crooner Colin Hunter, who both rubs elbows with business elite and shines in the music industry.

By day, Colin Hunter is the Founding President, CEO and owner of the airline carrier Sunwing Airlines and all-inclusive package company Sunwing Vacations, one of the most important  travel leisure organizations in Canada. Colin has worked in the travel industry for over 45 years, co-founding Canada 3000 and serving as Senior Vice-President of Adventure Tours, which became the Travel Holidays group. In addition, he and his son, Stephen, earned the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in the Hospitality and Tourism category in 2007.

By night, Colin pursues his passion for music. A huge fan of the 1950s crooner-jazz repertoire, such as hits performed by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett, Colin Hunter fulfilled a long-standing dream of becoming a singer in 2005 when he launched his first CD appropriately called, Come Fly With Me, which was recorded with the 16-piece band, the Starlight Orchestra.

In 2007, he returned with a second album, Timeless, featuring some twenty hits, including That’s LifeNew York, New YorkMack the Knife, Everybody Loves Somebody and Volare. Never at a loss for good ideas, Colin decided to feature his music during Sunwing flights so that passengers could tune in!

Colin has hit the stage many times, including at Espace Dell’Arte in Montreal, in October 2007, when he performed a few songs with the ever-talented guest singer Kim Richardson, not to mention his performance at the Théâtre du Palais municipal in La Baie in the Saguenay region, where he played for a crowd of over 800 people.

Recognized for his smooth voice and sophisticated, upbeat performances, Colin Hunter loves getting on stage to entertain the crowd. This entrepreneur–crooner is proving that following your passion can indeed take you anywhere!
