TIME FOR AN UPDATE!
CONGRATS TO PRESENT & PAST BIG VOICE SINGERS FOR THEIR RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
FRANCESCO YATES – for getting signed to Atlantic Records (US) and Warner Music Canada, for all his new recordings and for his about-to-be-released-worldwide song for Coca Cola TV ads. Francesco started coaching with Elaine when he was a mere 13 years old. He is ON FIRE!
THE CAST OF “ONCE” – Mirvish Productions cast of “Once”, the musical, is brilliant, heart-warming and they know how to create magic on the stage. To be able to coach you for even one day was such a treat. Congratulations to all of you in your ongoing run.
YANNICK BISSON – For winning Best Host at The 2015 Canadian Screen Awards, for his lead role in “The Adventures Of Napkin Man”, for which I had the pleasure of coaching him. His series (CBC) also won Best Pre-School Series. So much fun!
MADDY RODRIGUEZ – for winning the 2014 International John Lennon Songwriting Competition in the category of Country with her song “Fascinated”. Congrats Maddy!!
ANNA BARTLAM – for her brilliant run onstage with Mirvish Productions’ “The Heart Of Robin Hood”. You were SO good!

ODDANE TAYLOR – for singing and appearing on a video (76 Brand Films & Mike Edgell) for Covenant House and Sketch Working Arts, letting youth know there is a place for them to go.
WENDY LANDS – for teaching a brilliant very first “Talk The Talk” Voice-Over class for six-week at Big Voice. We love your passion!
ANDREA ENGLAND – for teaching a brilliant Songwriting course at Big Voice. The songs the writers have created are incredible. You’re a treasure of a coach and songwriter!
** And a very special shout out to MARK MASRI for his brilliant PBS Special, just recently aired. Mark is truly one of the best singers in the world and his songwriting is also brilliant (he wrote many songs for my “Big Voice” TV series). If you ever see that Mark is performing somewhere, go and see him! It is a Master Class in fine singing.
