Today is not only our HUB Highlights featuring frequent MAC contributor and collaborator to our MAC Arts Café, Elisa Malatesta, but it is also her birthday! Watch as we interview Elisa and find where she drew inspiration for her newest song, how she got started in the world of singing, and the culinary skills she learned from her Nonna growing up! As a newly-minted Canadian Christmas songwriter, will she be able to take on our Music Mondays challenge of naming as many holiday tunes as she can under pressure?
