Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 28th festival was one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!
Mikeila Marianetti is a 17-year-old singer born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario. Her father Michael Marianetti has battled Multiple Sclerosis since 1998. Her mother Leilanie Lingat Marianetti is the primary caregiver to her father by day, and a part time worker in the evenings. Mikeila has a great passion for music and has been singing since she was a toddler—with an Italian-Filipino heritage you can bet there was a karaoke machine in the house, and she always had a microphone in hand singing to her heart’s content. She began singing on stage in talent shows and participated in church and school choirs.
