Raised Odawa, (widely known as Ottawa) Rose-Ingrid Benjamin (she/they) is a member of the Haitian diaspora settled on Turtle Island. She is a gifted songwriter and performer that combines Pop, R&B and Gospel influences to create a sound all her own. With performance credits across Canada and the US notably, Hart House Theatre, Toronto Maple Leafs, Government of Canada, The Extreme Tour, Creative Mornings Ottawa, Orlando Fringe, and Oh Canada Eh? Rose-Ingrid is no stranger to the stage.

Her soulful voice, described by The Medium’s Sahiba Shah as an “absolutely stunning, melodic, goosebump-inducing voice that shines in a league of its own.” is what sets Rose-Ingrid apart from her contemporaries. Combined with her skill as a writer and incredible stage presence, Rose-Ingrid has carved a path for herself as a spoken word artist, and actor alongside her singing and songwriting.

As an educator and advocate, Rose-Ingrid has spoken and facilitated workshops at conferences and schools such as The Reformation Project, Moody College, and Knoxdale Public School. She is fiercely passionate about issues surrounding racial justice, LGBTQ+ inclusion, class and womanism. In 2019, she participated in The Center For Justice and Renewal’s Justice Leadership Institute for Emerging Leaders of African Descent where she and 9 other young black leaders sat under the tutelage of Dr Christena Cleveland and Zakiya Jackson.

Rose-Ingrid refuses to be boxed in and continues to create art that reflects her intersections as a Black Queer woman, immigrant’s daughter and a survivor or spiritual abuse and trauma. Inspired by songwriters and leaders like Nina Simone, she believes that song and stories can change the world and is committed to seeing that truth in her writing. Showing no sign of slowing down in 2021, she will be releasing her second EP, her first book of poetry and ​Makin’ It​ a podcast about life and the nature of success.
