The TCDSB extends their congratulations to Martina Ortiz Luis, grade 10 student at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts, who has been hired as permanent Canadian National Anthem singer for Toronto Maple Leafs games at the Air Canada Centre.
Martina made her singing debut on Sunday, October 2nd during an exhibition game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens. She started formal voice lessons at age 3 and trained at the Royal Conservatory of Music with an eye on being a professional singer-songwriter.
“I know the anthem really brings energy to the audience,” said Martina as featured in a recent Toronto Star article. “I’m a big fan of all Toronto’s teams, the Blue Jays, the Raptors. This year, I’m really excited because I know we have a lot of new young players on the Leafs. I think they’re going to do well. And I think that starts with energetic fans.”
