Quisha Wint Bio:
This phenomenal and expressive vocalist proves that you can live out your dreams through inspiring others. Quisha Wint is an accomplished songstress/performer/
Quisha was born to sing and entertain. She grew up in a Jamaican home listening to Reggae, Motown, Gospel, R&B, then expanded to jazz when she entered the well-known jazz program at Humber College in the mid ’90s. From there she embarked upon her dream of performing with well-known Toronto musicians, which took her to exciting overseas hotel engagements. Since then, Quisha has sung in many parts of Asia, Europe, North America, and Caribbean, leaving her audiences applauding and wanting more of this dynamic performer.
As one of Toronto’s sought-after session vocalists, Quisha is a rising star in the tight-knit music industry thanks to her bright personality and strong emotive vocal abilities. A career highlight was when Quisha was asked to sing with Jane Sibbery on her hit song “Calling All Angels” in the 2000 film “Pay It Forward” which stared Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment.
In 2003, Quisha made it all the way to the Top 30 finalists of Canadian Idol’s first season and shortly after received a phone call from Jacksoul’s lead singer, the late Haydain Neale, to become his new backup vocalist. While on the road with Jacksoul, fans embraced her as her energy swept through the sold-out crowds. Quisha has also sung backgrounds for top Matt Dusk, Maestro, Snow, to just name a few.
The most recent singing engagement was when she was brought to the 2012 Junos to back up Canadian Icon and international superstar William Shatner. You can currently hear her voice on the Frosted Mini Wheats commercial singing “Stuck in the Middle with You” as the voice of Blueberry.
This beautiful and talented artist is a breath of fresh air in an industry over-saturated with pop culture. Quisha’s voice is mesmerizing and captures the soulful sounds of the legendary artists (Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin) who’ve paved the way before her.
While Toronto fans have been anticipating her debut CD, the world will soon follow suit because Quisha Wint is worth the wait!
