Martina Ortiz Luis It’s hard to believe that at only 15 years old, Martina Ortiz Luis has accomplished so much in her musical journey already, but she certainly has…and in a big way! To start with, Martina is currently the full time anthem singer for the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs. This is the first time in Leafs history that this honour has been bestowed on someone, and Martina has been wowing crowds at the Air Canada Centre and fans across Canada and the US during games on TV. She has also been fortunate to receive great reviews in social media and major media outlets including the Toronto Star, Leafs SB Nation, The Toronto Sun, NBC Sports, CTV, City TV, and CBC Television to name a few.

Music Refreshing: Recording Artist Melissa Grant-Laguerre
Melissa has been in music for over 30 years. Starting off as a drummer, her passion for music reverberated every time she played. She held the ability to capture the attention of an audience and became recognized as a heavy hitter for musicians; male and female alike.
Over time, through the encouragement of her husband, Melissa’s focus changed from playing the music to singing and writing music herself. Coming from a musical family, these talents weren’t unbeknownst to her. Her songs became her testimony through trials that led to triumph and motivated others to have hope.
Through her musical journey, Melissa has been able to share the stage with artists like Kirk Franklin, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith and Tye Tribbett. She has dedicated her life to being an inspiration to younger generations, inspiring them to strive for their dreams. She is the definition of hard work, self-motivation and determination.
