Tiffany Ponce to launch new CD at Park Theatre
After bursting onto the local music scene in 2012 with her debut album Only the Beginning, Tiffany Ponce has proven that title was more than accurate.
Following up with this year’s Gratitude (release date August 8), Tiffany’s not only continuing to fulfill her life-long dream of performing for a living, but she also wants to continue inspiring those already touched by her music and to spread her message even further.
“I want to keep creating good music. I want more and more people to be touched, inspired or moved by it,” Tiffany explains. “With the music that I’m writing and putting out now, I’ve kind of found a greater purpose. I want to empower and help other people to pursue their passions and achieve their goals.”
Polishing the 90s pop/R&B flavour she grew up listening to (and is now known for), Tiffany’s also honed her on-stage skills, opening for the likes of Shaggy and 112, performing in multi-act shows at The Forks, the West End Cultural Centre and the Burton Cummings Theatre, as well as appearing as a regular at the Asian Canadian Festival and the Manitoba Filipino Street Festival – just to name a few!
“When I’m on stage, my goal is for the audience to feel the emotions of each song and for them to understand the messages or stories in my lyrics. I also want them to be entertained overall!” Tiffany says. “I’m now incorporating dancers into my shows, which is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time because I’ve always loved to dance. I’m also performing with more live musicians for a more full sound as well as the excitement it brings visually to the audience. I’m always eager to try new things and grow creatively in any way I can.”
Tiffany Ponce will launch her Gratitude CD with a show at the Park Theatre, 698 Osborne Street on Saturday, August 8, 2015. The concert, which is open to all ages, will start with an opening performance by John Sy. Doors open at 7:00 p.m., show at 7:30.
