Theme Song

The 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games Host Society is excited to announce the theme song for this year’s Games: “Be The Ones” was co-written and recorded by multiple Juno award-winning singer songwriter Serena Ryder, and co-written and produced by Grammy and Oscar nominated composer Stephan Moccio, and Jay Paul Bicknell.

“Be the Ones” shares strong messages that everyone can relate to and be excited by.  “Taking back the power of our lives to live / I know we’re ready,” the song lyrics align with the AWG theme for all participants, volunteers and supporters, to “Find Your Power.” The theme song is always such an important element of the Games, echoing the strength, dedication and spirit of the athletes and communities. It unites the circumpolar north and encourages camaraderie, with friendly and fierce competition throughout the Games, and then continues on in our hearts and heads on our playlist.

We’re all wide awake
Stronger faster higher than the games we play
In the middle of this dreamy symphony
I know we’re ready

Look me in the eye
You can see the fire’s burning red and white
We don’t need anyone else to see the light
I know we’re ready

WHOA WHOA - and you know we’ll be the ones, and you know we’ll be the ones!
WHOA WHOA - ‘cause we’re livin’ it

Stronger than the wind
We’re coming home so we can finally begin
Taking back the power of our lives to live
I know we’re ready


I’m the fire in the night
I’m the dreamer of the way
I believe in myself before I believe in fate
I’m the shining northern lights
I’m the keeper of the key
I believe in myself before I believe in fate
