Sasha Henry always had a love for music but it wasn’t until she began singing that she discovered her passion for it. She started singing in choirs and then went on to directing those same choirs, travelling all over North America with her group United. Sasha discovered her passion for musical theatre, leading shows such as Dreamgirls, Hairspray, Beauty and the Beast and Mamma Mia. Aside from musicals and choirs, Sasha also works as a vocal coach, a resident singer for three years for SundéSocial (a monthly live music event), back-up vocals, and special events like (weddings, fundraisers, banquets).
Toronto-born R&B artist Aaron Ridge is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in local music circles. A multi-musician, a singer, and an occasional rapper, he is one of the most versatile artists you’ll encounter. His work uses elements from a variety of musical styles and genres, including both classic and modern R&B, gospel, and a bit of folk. His lyrics are catchy, relatable, and profound. His sound is smooth and effortless. In May of 2018, Aaron released his first album “Love, In Moments”, with the indie label 10K Label Group. In February of 2019, he followed that up with the EP “Cinq”. He’s performed for dozens of events around the city and beyond, including Afrofest and Spoken Soul Fest.
