On Da Grine TV

Host Valentine Henderson interviews actors, athletes, singers, bands, musicians and anyone making the waves around Vancouver.

People make it big from time to time. We don’t often get a glimpse into how that came about. What happened to create the spark that lead to the flame? Who was inspirational in your journey? What were the critical moments? Did you ever get ground down by being on da grine day after day? Join me as I ask our inspirational guests questions that reveal how they made it.
