Measha Brueggergosman is having a good year, but it wasn’t always so good

On Thursday at Markham Theatre and Friday at Trinity St. Paul’s Church, soprano Measha Brueggergosman will be performing songs from her new album I’ve Got a Crush on You. Brueggergosman tells the Star that this album isn’t opera-heavy, and that it was made because she “felt the urge to procreate.” In 2009, the singer underwent heart surgery which led her to write the album track “Whole to my Half” about her supportive husband, and in 2011—after she suffered the loss of twins in utero—she began to work on her management, website and public relations, which has led to a hosting gig on Canada’s Got Talent and a tour for her album.
