Marlene O’Neill & Cathy Borges

John & Merissa Gleason
Read about Marlene O'Neill & Cathy Borges

Marlene and Cathy – power, sensitivity, and boundless vocal energy! Both ladies have a personal relationship with Christ and come from a rich Christian up-bringing and family heritage of Gospel music. They embrace this whole-heartedly in both stage presentation and daily life. The Tonettes have been blessed with many years of experience working from coast-to-coast in
Canada, the United States and abroad, in a multitude of venues – big and small. Everything from stage productions, women’s retreats, church concerts and outdoor festivals to conferences, etc.

est. 2007 : Originally a trio, the Tonettes sadly lost their third vocalist, Amoy Levy, in 2020 following a lengthy illness. Marlene and Cathy miss her friendship and un-matched vocal giftings and are determined like never before to press onward in the path that the Lord has set before them in music ministry. The Tonettes bring together their individual knowledge of the vocal craft obtained by literally decades of practical experience and traditional music schooling. Their goal
is to always, without exception, deliver top-notch vocal harmonies and true-life testimony of God’s faithfulness and grace. All in a sincere and powerful, presentation of the Gospel in music; they always lead their listening audience to the cross and give all glory to Christ alone. Marlene and Cathy are cousins who are both rooted in the vocal stylings of Church Gospel music and currently perform vocal styles that include Worship, Gospel, Jazz, Soul, Blues, etc. They have been singing together since they were little girls along with their mothers and family. The Tonettes endeavour to put everything they have into each presentation whether backing up another artist or head-lining an event themselves.

With all of these attributes and many years of experience under their belts, they will not disappoint when you hear them in concert – you will be drawn closer to Christ through their powerful presentation.

Registration begins Monday at 3pm followed by a Dinner at 5:00pm. First session begins at 7:00pm.
