KWC Canada National Director


Dr. Sharon Quinn lives in Burlington, Ontario with her four children, where she owns and operates an animal hospital.  Her involvement with KWC began in 2015, and having experienced the magic of that landmark season, Sharon knew she wanted to remain involved with KWC so she could help facilitate similarly rich experiences for future competitors.  Sharon took on directorship of KWC Ontario in 2016, a remarkably successful year that saw three competitors from Team Ontario win National Championships and go on to represent Canada at the World Championships.  When KWC found itself in need of a new Canadian partner for the 2017 season, Sharon stepped up to fill the leadership void, taking on the role of National Director and charting a new and exciting course for KWC Canada.

Susan and Bernie Cook
(The most dynamic of duos)


Those who’ve competed at the national level will recognize this lovely couple as the driving force behind the scenes at the national championships in Calgary, but they also happen to our longest-serving provincial directors, under whose guidance KWC Alberta has positively flourished.

Susan and Bernie are the owners of KISS Productions, a mobile pub entertainment company that began in 2001.  They are based in Calgary, Alberta, with a division that opened in Sylvan Lake in 2015 to service Central Alberta.  They have been actively involved in the organization and administration of karaoke competitions for the past nine years, and are always seeking new and innovative ways to both enhance and streamline the process.  They have set a very high standard and work very hard to ensure that it is always met, and to nurture the industry in general.

Crissy Petersen


Born in Calgary, Alberta, but raised in the East Kootenays of BC, Crissy started singing in church as a child, continued singing throughout high school, performed in theatre productions and eventually started working at local karaoke pubs in her hometown of Cranbrook. In 2011 she moved to Vancouver, three little ones in tow, where she established herself as a karaoke host, started CJDJ Services and later opened Twisted Sisters and Misters Karaoke.

Crissy absolutely loves what she does, she’s endlessly grateful for her ever-expanding karaoke family, and relishes the opportunity to showcase all of the incredible singers the lower mainland has to offer!

In short, She’s ready to take KWC BC to a whole notha’ level!

Elsaida Alerta of Winnipeg, Manitoba has always had a passion for music.  She started singing at a very young age, which eventually led her to competitive singing and early success in competitions, all of which culminated in her dominance of KWC 2015, from which she emerged as the 2015 KWC Women's World Champion!  

Elsaida is very excited to be back as co-director of KWC Manitoba, along with her partner Peter Dueck.  She eagerly anticipates the coming season, and looks forward to helping Canada's representatives prepare for the KWC Finals.

Kathy and Alex LeGood have been hosting karaoke for the past 11 years. It all started out with a guitar amp a cheap mic and a karaoke disc player. Music is something that has brought them together. Since 2008 they have been hosting karaoke competition such as The Legion Idol, Coaches Battle Royal, The Fabulous 50's Plus, Double Whammie, and so on. It is a passion they can't seem to get tired of. It started as Ma and Pa's Karaoke, but now we are known as Alley-Katz Karaoke. Hosting karaoke twice a week is a treat for them and they are very much looking forward to bringing KWC to the Maritime provinces, meeting new people and welcoming them to the KWC family.
