At 17 she obtains a leading role in a musical directed by M. Vic Vogel and from there begins her amazing journey of perfecting & her skills as a performer. Her immense vocal talent, her versatility and her aptitude for singing in three languages will, thru the years, give her the opportunity to participate in many important projects such as; the Wings of fire Cd , recorded at The Rudolfinum Theater in Prague with a 60 piece orchestra and even to release in 1996 a french selftiteled album wich will grant her two important nominations in 1997, one for best new artist at the Adisq awards in Mtl and one for best french video at the Much Music awards.

In 1999, back from a three week tour in Bosnia, Kosovo and Macedonia, where she performed for the Canadian Army, Elyzabeth returns deeply mooved by the shock of a very different & troubling reality.
