Introducing Our Star-Studded Performers

Thelma Houston

Grammy award winner Thelma Houston claimed the top of the pop, R&B and dance charts early in her career with her signature rendition of "Don't Leave Me This Way." Houston has rocked Rockefeller Center on NBC's The Today Show and the summer music special Hit Me Baby, One More Time. She dazzled in ABC's Motown45 and glittered on ABC's The Disco Ball. Along with Aretha Franklin and Mary Wilson, she raised the roof on Love, Rhythm and Blues for PBS. Houston appeared with Chaka Khan, CeCe Peniston, Phoebe Snow, and Mavis Staples as the "Sisters of Glory" in New York City in a rousing performance that later received a special request to be performed at the Vatican for the Pope. With recent appearances in Tokyo, Las Vegas, London and beyond, Houston continues to captivate audiences with her exhilarating performances.

Divine Brown

A rare gift to have, Divine Brown’s five-octave vocal range makes      everyone stand up and pay attention. Divine captured the heart of the      public and her music garnered her a Certified Gold Album for her debut      self-titled project (2005 - Universal Music), a Juno Award for R&B      Album of the Year (The Love Chronicles), as well as a SOCAN #1 Award. Her versatility as a performer both musically and vocally has found her manifesting success in the musical theatre world, television, as well as Top 40 radio. Divine is currently getting ready to release her EP Crazy Love Amplified which is a reflection of her diverse taste in music and influences.

Sean Jones

Sean Jones is a Juno award-winning recording artist and actor. He's the star of Toronto’s Soul In The City at Casa Loma and the very first musical ambassador for WestJet and creator of The WestJet Boarding Sessions. He's had the distinct honour of opening for Ellen DeGeneres’ arena tour, as well as sharing the stage with legendary acts such as Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, David Foster, Usher, Beyonce, Macy Gray, Eric Benet, Alan Frew, Divine Brown, and Jully Black. Most recently, Sean produced a magical Christmas concert benefiting The Daily Bread Food Bank at Koener Hall entitled Holiday Soul, which featured Divine Brown, the legendary Jackie Richardson, and the Toronto Concert Orchestra. With sold-out shows, his face in movies and commercials, and his songs playing at 30,000 feet, Sean Jones is continuing to pursue the career he loves while sharing his music with the world.
