It was in church, on Sunday mornings in Sunday School, that I first came to know the sound of my own voice.
The first song we usually learn in Sunday School is the traditional:
'Jesus Loves Me'.

It's a simple yet meaningful song that can serve almost as a mantra and reminder for us throughout our daily lives. We are never alone, He is always with us and loves us.

This piece has always had very significant meaning for my family, most specifically m...

Most of you know I’m always on the hunt for heart shapes! Yesterday I sat watching some clouds overhead and I was not the least bit surprised to see this little heart cloud bust itself away from the larger cloud mass.

So, call it cheesy, this awesome, fluffy metaphor presented itself to me while doing some deep thinking. ♥️ When we follow our hearts we separate ourselves from the masses in our own unique way, in a way that’s honouring our inner voice...

I hesitated in posting this because sometimes I think, who wants to hear this. But I personally always need to hear it, so maybe there are some of you who will benefit in hearing this from me.

Believe me when I say, I sing and I create in order to keep going, to stay afloat. A sort of serial artist.

This photograph, taken while I was performing, also felt like a moment of silent prayer for me.

I’ve always used music to pour all of my ‘stuff’ into (pain...

Some New Years ‘cheesieness’ to go with your champagne! ;)

This 2019 version of Tonia cried the most this year of any! I’m talkin’ ugly crying along much of the way. It was, by far, my most successful year as a singer and new author, but it also yielded the most growing pains and tears of ‘Can I really do this?’. While I’m incredibly grateful for the immense blessings, opportunities and new friendships that 2019 brought me, it came with intense overw...

Keep Looking UP! Keep raising your expectations! Keep expecting miracles! Keep braving it out along your path planting your seeds, your harvest will come! Keep ignoring the nay-sayers! Keep weeding out whatever and whoever doesn't serve your highest good and purpose! Keep adjusting along the way, detours often hold miracles. Keep taking baby steps! Keep sharing your passions! Keep collaborating! Keep asking for help! Keep your vulnerability! Keep SH...

Hi Everyone!

This is so exciting, my FIRST dance hit video! And how it came to life is so cool! You just never know how and when you're going to meet awesome like-minded people that will become part of your journey through life!

On the way home from my performance at the Miami Ball this past November we had an Uber driver who turned out to be a talented musician and producer. We were super hungry and had a craving for McDonalnds. LOL! I asked Juan...

A heartfelt & emotional throwback. This young man, at only 34, changed the entire direction of my life. My late uncle Brian wasn't even a singer but was very educated and passionate when it came to opera. While he was alive it was his mission to instill his passion for opera in me. I casually sang some silly little song for him one day and he jumped up and said: Honey, you have a voice made for opera! Thus began the seasons tickets at the COC, buyin...

Dear family, friends & artists,


Over 100 family and friends were present at my Red Carpet private concert last summer. Everyone showed up with so much love and support to make it such a meaningful night for me.  That night ended up being a catalyst that literally set off a domino effect of performance opportunities, new friendships, and creative endeavors. That concert was all about embracing exactly where I am on my musical journey, creating my own...

Dear Wish Makers,

As we take our first steps into 2017, envision what you see for yourself THIS year, and imagine your day to day. I invite you to read & listen to this poignant message, consider for yourself - How are you saying & showing 'I Was Here' with your own life?

This year in particular we lost so many treasured artists at ages that were too young. Because so many are celebrities, we see the impact on a global stage. BUT, we all know you...

Free at last, thank God almighty, I'm free at last! It's such a relief when you can have the strength to put your foot down and say: That's it! I'm following my dreams and I no longer care what anyone says or thinks! No more letting fear dictate. I'm being brave to step outside my comfort zone, and 2016 was a personal year of stepping up, stepping out and clearing the canvas for new and happy in what I have to offer. I've encouraged many others in m...
