A SELF-TAUGHT CANADIAN ARTIST WHO DEVELOPED A PASSION FOR SINGING. I have taken my musical and performing talents to the Winnipeg Arena on stage with such luminaries such as Celine Dion in 1996.
I performed for an audience of up to 10,000 / 3000 in Las Vegas, and at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg, MB Canada. Victor Davies, songwriter for the Pan Am Games stated that “Aretha Franklin showed up” when I audition.
I also ventured into the film industry and was cast in a variety of movies including The Avro Arrow, Marriage of Convenience, The Clown at Midnight, Nights Below Station Street, The Adventures of Shirley Holmes, The David Milgaard Story, A Helluva Woman, and a host of television commercials.
At a “Blast from the past” Roast, In New York, I was invited by the original Kraemar of Seinfeld to be his guest and to perform at a Birthday Roast for the veteran actor Joey Reynolds
As a songwriter, I have co-written songs with award-winning artist Freshie I.E. (Rob Wilson), John Wilson of the legendary “Sly Slick & Wicked”, (USA) and worked with producer Chris Burke-Gaffney.
I was on the approved list of bands ready to perform for the U.S.O. for the American troups shortly after 911.
I continue to perform for live audiences and am currently working with local musicians and songwriters to develop new material.
I have just written a book called “BREAKING ”
A true life story, how I taught myself to sing during the darkest hours of my life, suffering Agoraphobia, and anxieties that bound me. At one point in my life I was temporarily homeless, and did line up at food banks several times to provide for my four children. I was broken, impoverished, unable to work, dependant on the government and prescription drugs in order to get through each day. Not being able to take more than three steps outside of my house without suffering panic/ my desitude name became nothing more than “someone going nowhere” ! I took steps to get my life back and to chase down everything that bound me in chains.
I have since became a license Estitician/ Make up Artist, An Award Wining Realtor ® a Professional Singer, Author, and most of all , I have the opportunity to give back to my community in volunteering and in co-ordinating special events for fundraising to give back what was once given to me.
