We’re gearing up for the 2015 broadcast special of WE Day on December 7, and to get you pumped, we’re taking MTV viewers behind the scenes for exclusive interviews with some of this year’s performers including Hozier, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kiesza.

In our first interview, we caught up with Irish singer, Andrew Hozier-Byrne, backstage to find out what the WE Day movement meant to him.

‘To be here is a joy and it’s an honour too. And it’s a fantastic initiative, it’s a fantastic idea. I don’t think I’ve ever done a show like that. I can’t think of anything I’ve heard, where tickets aren’t exactly bought, but they’re earned. I think that’s a very nice way to look at things.’

Each year thousands of youth earn their way to WE Day by dedicating their time to raising funds and awareness for a cause in need. This year’s main event was hosted by pop-sensation Demi Lovato, and co-hosted by Much and eTalk’s Liz Trinnear. The live show included performances by Hozier, Hedley, Carly Rae Jepsen, Keizsa, Shawn Mendes, Francesco Yates and more!

Check out our full interview with Hozier here and be sure to keep up with MTV.ca for more exclusive interviews from Canadian singers Carly Rae Jepsen and Kiesza.

Don’t miss the MTV Special broadcast premiere of WE Day 2015 Tuesday, December 7 at 9e/6p on MTV!
