Here are some interesting things that have happened in my life recently:
Leading Women/Building Communities Award
On March 12, I received the Ontario Government’s “Leading Women, Building Communities Award” for “exceptional community leadership to improve the lives of women and girls in Ontario” which was presented by Leona Dombrowsky, MPP for Prince Edward-Hastings and Minister of Education.
“What an honour” is such an understatement! I am grateful to her for nominating me for this prestigious award and will do my best to live up to its name.
PELA/CFDC promotional video
I was interviewed, in English & in French, for a series about people in the creative industry in the County. Here is the link to the English version:
So You Think You Can Dance Quinte
I have been asked to participate in a local Quinte version of “So You Think You Can Dance” as a fundraiser for Volunteeer Information Quinte and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. It will be held at the Yardman Arena in Belleville, ON on Friday May 14th. My partner is David Allen, Regional Director, YMCA Belleville & Quinte and we will be meeting our choreographer this week to choose our music, dance style & choreography. It’s going to be a lot of work over the next few weeks but I’m up for the challenge. And, it’s for a great cause! Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through Volunteer & Information Quinte: www.viq.ca
Helsinki, Finland in June 2011
I have been invited to the International Congress for BPW International (Business & Professional Women) to sing “Women of the World” in their 4 official languages: English, French, Spanish & Italian. I should probably learn a Finnish phrase or two, as well!!
This Is My Canada sweatshirts
I still have a few sweatshirts left – $40 each or 2 for $30 each. I will be ordering t-shirts in April. Both are available by emailing me with your orders.
I’ve been in studio for the past few months working on my newest album which I hope to release this summer. It will include “The Sound of Haiti”, “Angels”, “Spirit of Peace”, “The Power Within”, “Secret Dreams”, to name a few. And, of course, you will be among the first to know about it!!
Thanks for stopping by!
