Featuring Live Performances by Female Artists

Sappho – Singer | Songwriter | WOI2019 Nominee Sappho is a sci-pop performer and songwriter, currently based in Toronto, ON. When she’s not in virtual reality, she can be found writing and performing futuristic pop music, making 360 videos, and appearing on panels about where tech can take us! Sci-pop is hoping that gets stuck in your head, and Sappho is tremendously excited to be debuting the new sub-genre here at the Women of Inspiration Awards! The future is female

Kaiya – Singer| Songwriter| Philanthropist | WOI2019 Nominee For the last two years, Kaiya feels she has been able to dream with her eyes wide open. Kaiya began learning piano and taking voice lessons only three short years ago, but in that time her love for performing has blossomed.  In 2018 Kaiya performed at 19 events, including Brett Wilson’s #OMGP in support of mental health, Prairie Rowdy in support of Paul Brandt’s #Not in My City, the Women of Inspiration Awards, and at #BrettBrett Christmas in support of our veterans.  She also graced the stage of the Bella Theatre and performed a volunteer concert for the patients and staff on the Palliative Care Ward at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.  She has been thrilled to meet and perform alongside fellow artists The Dead South, Leaving Thomas, and Brett Kissel, her country idol.


A Woman of Inspiration is an extraordinary woman who leads by example, lives on purpose and inspires others to be more and do more. She is a modern-day hero, game-changer, mover and shaker, and role model who leads by example with courage, confidence, commitment, and integrity, empowers those around her and makes an impact in her community and around the globe. We look forward to celebrating female role models across Canada!
