Born in Milton, Ontario, Canada to Italian parents, Sonja demonstrated a gift of song at an early age performing in school plays and church choirs.

Since the 80’s Sonja could be found entertaining crowds at weddings (English, Italian and Jewish), numerous street festivals, church plays, anniversaries, restaurants, corporate parties and charity events.

Performing solo, duo, trio, band, orchestra or choir Sonja has the ability of standing out powerfully or blending in beautifully with some of the most talented performers and musicians in the greater Toronto area.  Able to adapt to almost any genre of music, she doesn’t disappoint:  Adult Contemporary, Disco, Motown, 50’s & 60’s, Seventies, Rock, 80’s, Latin and Dance.

Whether she’s performing in flawless English, Italian or Spanish, she electrifies audiences with her charismatic stage presence and dynamic voice.  Wherever Sonja has performed, she has won rave reviews.  Part of this is because of her professionalism in her art and part of it is her ability to draw audiences warmly into her world of musical paradise, pampering them with sounds that inspire and delight.

Sonja has had much practice in stirring the emotion of an audience, especially when she entertained at packed-house performances at Ontario Place and on-stage performances at the Air Canada Centre, Ivor Wynn Stadium, The Canadian National Exhibition and Canada’s Wonderland, numerous television and radio appearances with such notables as the late Johnny Lombardi (“CHIN Radio & Television”), Shirley Solomon (“The Shirley Show”), Art Eggleton (former Mayor of Toronto) and various CityTV high profilers, packed-house performance at the “Energy Rush” concert at Ontario Place, writer of a “Top Ten” song called “Reach For Me”, and on-stage performances at Ivor Wynn Stadium, The Canadian National Exhibition, Canada’s Wonderland, the Amphitheatre in Cuba and assorted locations throughout Canada and the United States.

In her teens Sonja was given the opportunity to embrace her Italian heritage by making her way to Toronto.  There she was quickly embraced by various Italian communities and shared many stages throughout Canada and the United States with well-known Italian superstars such as Rocco del Sud, Enrico Farina and Salvatore Panetta in cities such as Toronto, Hamilton, Guelph, London, Windsor, Fort Erie, St. Catharines, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, Oshawa, Ottawa, Montreal, Niagara Falls, Halifax, Detroit, Canton, Ohio, Long Island, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, West Virginia and Boston.  Sonja was quickly brought to the attention of Legendary Radio and Television personality, Johnny Lombardi, when she entered the CHIN Song Competition and placed 1st.  The following year she entered the CHIN Song Competition and again was honoured with yet another 1st Place award.  Mr. Lombardi was so impressed with her dynamic stage presence and powerful vocals that he asked her to join the roster of entertainers at their CHIN Winter Picnic in Cuba.  There, Sonja not only thoroughly entertained audiences but was also asked to join the Mariposa Dance Competition and yet again brought home Gold.

Sonja is no stranger to winning competitions.  Along with vibrant natural talent, she brings with her numerous years of experience in the entertainment industry.  Her impressive list of accomplishments include fourteen 1st Place awards in talent competitions, two of which are from the Royal Conservatory of Music and another, the title of Miss Italy of Milton.  Sonja also took a stab at song writing in the mid 90’s and managed to write a Top Ten Dance Hit entitled Reach for Me selling over 150,000 copies...not bad for a first attempt. 

Sonja has long been recognized in the industry as a competent performer, worthy of applause.  Sonja’s remarkable scope of experience has enabled her to remain flexible to individual need and accessible for all occasions.  From weddings to corporate functions, from restaurants to stadiums, Sonja is sure to deliver an unforgettable performance.  Her engaging humour and lively personality captures hearts, her enthusiastic, yet sensitive interpretation of music ignites souls.  No one just sits and listens to Sonja...they experience her!
