Music Refreshing: 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.

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.
Media Equipping and Inspiration Author, Elaine Grant.
Author of “She’s Still Standing”, Elaine Grant recounts her life’s story in hopes that it will inspire others to make a positive change. Elaine candidly shares her experiences as a survivor of sexual and substance abuse while she searched for hope, healing and meaning. From exotic dancer to bible college graduate, “She’s Still Standing is a journey from hopelessness to redemption.
Elaine Grant works part-time in the health industry and is a full-time caregiver to her grandchildren. She is a graduate of Cornerstone Academy of Biblical Studies where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Evangelism. She attends Transforming Life Centre where she is a member of the counselling ministry. Ms. Grant is a devoted mother and grandmother of two and resides in Ottawa, Canada.
