Toronto's Earth Hour event is getting some high-profile musical help.

Multi-platinum Grammy and Juno Award-winner Nelly Furtado has been named the first Canadian Earth Hour Ambassador, and will perform a free, unplugged concert at Nathan Phillips Square March 29.

Furtado joins other Earth Hour Ambassadors including Cate Blanchett and Natalie Imbruglia.

Organizers say they're taking steps to make the event as carbon-neutral as possible, including powering the event with green, renewable energy.

On March 29 at 8 p.m., cities around the world will turn off their lights for Earth Hour to raise awareness about climate change.

Millions are expected to participate around the world. Canada is leading the way with more than 20,000 people, 1, 000 businesses and 50 cities signed-up so far.
