Michelle has been surrounded by music her entire life. Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, she has recently completed her fantastic new album “Drive”. Michelle’s combination of poignant lyrics, emotive music and stunning performances make this singer-songwriter a powerful artist.

The principal inspiration for the debut single “Drive” is Michelle’s struggle with alcohol addiction for many years. Seeking help Michelle has been sober since March 10th 2014. Motivated by her experiences she wrote the song “Drive”; a song about her recovery that will be released as the debut single.

Ted Michaels of Corus Entertainment’s AM900 CHML has been a huge supporter of Michelle and her story of recovery. He is the host of “Wellness Wednesdays", which has won three awards, the media award from the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) and the media award from The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP).

In addition, Ted received the CMHA Ontario’s 2016 Provincial Media Award. Michaels is the host of the Health and Wellness show on CHML.

St. Joseph's Healthcare Foundation is known for building lasting, mutually rewarding partnerships that enable St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, a multi-campus, teaching hospital, to provide the best in compassionate patient care and innovative medical research. 

For the past 40 years, the Foundation has reached out to the community for donations, big and small, to assist with capital improvements, research funding, academic infrastructure and equipment renewals and enhancements. Since 1970, together they have raised more than $119 million for St. Joseph's, which has emerged as one of Canada's leading health science centres.

While it is common for persons with mental illness and addiction to experience stigma and barriers to social integration, St. Joseph’s is deeply committed to working with their community partners in mental healthcare to eradicate stigma and promote the fullest recovery for every individual.
