Not only is Michelle Wright of Merlin. Ontario one of the most
talented people to come out of Canada. She is also one of the most
generous with her time.
Michelle is an internationally famous entertainer, her voice is as

to Michelle. Both of her parents were musicians. She can’t tell you
exactly when it was that she became a professional entertainer, it was

Since releasing her first record album in 1988 she has sold over two
million albums and has won a large collection of major industry awards.
Enough awards to fill the trophy room in her Nashville home. She even
has a songwriter’s award for her hit ‘I Surrender” Listening to her sing

in her living room.
As busy as she is touring across North America and countries worldwide.
She still makes time to do an amazing amount of humanitarian work. She
is an ardent worker on behalf of World Vision. So committed to this

where you can sign up to sponsor a child. . As tired as she may be

degree of commitment. Michelle has also entertained our troops in
Afghanistan and appears at events in support of local food banks and
other humanitarian projects.
Michelle Wright ranks right up there with our other Canadian
entertainers including Anne Murray and Celine Dion She is another
