Women Of Inspiration 

What Inspires You? 

For the last two years I have had the honour of performing for the Women of Inspiration Awards both in Calgary and in Toronto. In the days before Covid 19 I would be excited at the thought of getting on a plane and travelling back to Toronto to perform again soon.   I also would be going back as a previous award winner, having won the Youth Excellence Award last year.

The way things are going, chances are the awards show might not happen, or it might look different.  One thing I know is the magic will still be there no matter the circumstances. 

What makes the event special is the woman behind it all, Monica.  She is a dreamer.  “If your dreams don’t scare you they aren’t big enough” she says. She is a hard worker. She cares for those around her and she sees the best in everyone.  

The first time on her stage I sang for the WOI I sang Titanium by David Guetta featuring Sia. When Monica asked me to think of another power song for the next years show, I thought instead of finding a power song, I’d write one! That was how F.R.E.E. was born. 

She believed in me when I was learning to believe in myself.  

Thank you for all you have done for me and so many other women out there! You are a true Women of Inspiration! 

Inspired by those around me and the music that brings us all together!
