Martina Stokes Is On Air!

29 minutes

Canadian pop singer-songwriter Martina Stokes grew up constantly surrounded by music. Born into a family of musicians, Martina started training as a classical pianist at age four. Despite this influence, she felt a strong pull toward soul music and the Divas of music. She could often be found at a piano performing an Aretha Franklin song or singing karaoke to a powerhouse classic such as “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston. Martina has been writing songs longer than she can remember and started recording herself on loops with her keyboard at age six. Whenever she was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would tell people “I AM a pop star!” From childhood to adulthood, she took every opportunity possible to sing for people at any function and for any audience. She began secretly making music in her tiny Vancouver apartment at age 17 while attending college. In late 2020, Martina was discovered singing a Whitney Houston song while working at a small supplement store, thinking no customers were present. Musician and actor Duane Angelvette told her she was simply too talented to continue hiding her gift and sponsored her financially to begin a recording career. Making a bold and brave choice, Martina began her public recording career in early 2021 and fell in love with the process. Despite resistance from family, she was too passionate about the art of song to ever give up pursing music as a career. She believes in reigniting the world of pop in which vocal ability and skill bring out the best in a piece of art and wow the listener. The inspiration for her goals with her music career come from artists such as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera and Ariana Grande. When asked about her vocal abilities, Martina says her coaches were Whitney and her Mariah, raising her love for skill in the beauty of being a vocalist.
