BORN AND RAISED in Scarborough, Ontario as the youngest child of three, SugaBaybee’s unique voice and talents have found her many opportunities in the Canadian entertainment industry, including radio, television and animation. ..
IT ALL BEGAN for Sugar when she was in high-school; after an impromptu audition landed her a role in the school play, where she immediately discovered her love and talent for acting.
Sugar emerged from high school anxious to find her place in the entertainment world, and to prove that an opportunity can knock at anytime, while Sugar was working as Manager for a Roots Store, she was discovered at their annual Christmas party by disk jockey Kwame from KISS 92.5,
a Toronto radio station. Within a month of being on-air at the station, Sugar was moved to the morning show, the most sought after timeslot in radio, where her child-like, unique voice made a huge splash in the industry.
During her radio stint at KISS 92.5, Sugar recorded a parody to Eminem’s the Real Slim Shady called THE REAL SUGABAYBEE. It was not long before the song hit number one at the station, and Sugar was chosen to perform as the opening act for DESTINYS CHILD at KISS 92’s Wham Bam Thank You Jam in 2001.
Not long after, Canada’s number one network for kids, YTV, asked Sugar to join the team. Hosting the most popular after school block in the country; The Zone, Sugar delivers improvised comedy with a flare all her own, five days a week. She hosts industry acclaimed interviews with celebrities (BRAD PITT, CHRIS BROWN, ALICIA KEYS, ANTONIO BANDERAS, CUBA GOODING JR, HILLARY DUFF, MO PETE, and the list goes on...)and plays a variety of different characters, while talking to Canadian kids about issues that matter.
Sugar’s one of a kind voice has also opened the door to many opportunities in the animation world. Her first audition and role for SAILOR MOON as Mini Moon got the ball rolling, and to this day, she has appeared in more than 30 animated shows and movies, including a starring role as WISH BEAR in the latest Care Bears Movie, Care Bears Big Wish.
Catch her this fall in the new action adventure series DI GATA DEFENDERS as Kara.
On top of her many other jobs, Sugar was enlisted by Toronto’s most widely read newspaper, THE TORONTO STAR in early 2004, to write a weekly column “Suga Buzz” (as aptly named by Sug) on current affairs for youth.
Although it’s hard to imagine Sugar has any spare time, she is most proud of her work with various children’s charities, including Sick Kids Hospital, Dreams Take Flight, United Way and the Special Olympics.
