Profile Bio Text
Singer/songwriter Nelly Furtado heavily credits her ethnic background and childhood for culturally and crucially spawning her creativity as a female and as an inspiring musician. Born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, Furtado`s working-class parents, whom are of Portuguese decent, instilled a hardcore work ethic during her upbringing. She spent eight summers working as a chambermaid with her housekeeping mother, quickly realizing what it meant to honestly make a living. She turned to music for enjoyment, learning to play the guitar and the ukulele, and listened to mainstream R&B like Mariah Carey, TLC, Jodeci, Salt-N-Pepa, and Bell Biv DeVoe. Later, she delved into her older brother`s collection of Radiohead, Pulp, Oasis, Portishead, the Verve, and U2, pushing Furtado to fully embrace different musical genres, specifically Brazilian music and material by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Amalia Rodrigues. Hip-hop was also a big catalyst in shaping Furtado`s musical appreciation. After high school, she headed to Toronto where she worked at an alarm company by day and experienced the music scene by night. She joined a hip-hop duo tagged Nelstar, and this opportunity led Furtado back to her hip-hop influences of De La Soul and Digable Planets. This allowed her to get comfortable with writing her own melodies and freestyle rhymes. When Furtado started cutting loose at a local Toronto club during the week, her musical aspirations began to swirl. Brian West and Gerald Eaton, who were of the Canadian funk-pop group the Philosopher Kings, were instantly impressed by her strong sense of performing and asked to produce her demo. During those sessions, Furtado created some of the moving work which landed on her debut for Dreamworks; these solid collaborations led to the pertinent introduction of Nelly Furtado and the critical acclaim of her debut Whoa Nelly!, released in fall 2000. A headling tour of the U.S in spring 2001 sparked more interest from fans and critics, and a spot on Moby`s Area:One summer tour allowed singles "I`m Like a Bird" and "Turn Off the Light" to receive bigger praise. Furtado`s greatest achievement followed a year later when she earned four Grammy nods, including "Song of the Year" for "I`m Like a Bird." Folklore appeared in November 2003, nearly two months after Furtado gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Nevis. Her third record, Loose, which featured appearances from Juanes and {Timbaland} (who also produced more than half of the album`s tracks) was released in 2006. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide Played eight dates on "the village stage" at Lilith Fair. Formed (and an ex-member of) trip-hop group Nelstar. Learned to play trombone and ukulele at age nine, keyboards at age 11 and began composing at age 13. Is Canadian of Portuguese decent. Speaks Portuguese fluently. Is fluent in Hindi. Voted one of the "Fun and Fearless Females" by Cosmopolitan Magazine (2002.) Won "Best Pop Vocal, Female" Grammy for her song "I`m Like A Bird" (2002). Daughter Nevis (named after the island on which she was conceived) born on September 20, 2003, in Toronto to Nelly and then boyfriend Jasper Gahunia (aka DJ Lil` Jaz). Second album "Folklore" released. [Nov 25th 2003] Parents are Maria Manuela Furtado and Antonio Jose Furtado. Has a sister, Lisa Anne Furtado, and a brother, Michael Anthony Furtado. Her song "Forca", in which she sang both English and Portuguese, was the official theme of the Euro 2004 (European Football Championships) in Portugal. Ranked #58 in Stuff magazine`s "102 Sexiest Women In The World" (2002) Perhaps as a nod to her diverse influences, she was invited to open for U2 and perform on Moby`s Area: One Tour alongside the techno-rocker. She also scored some awards for her work, including Canadian Juno Awards for best new solo artist and best songwriter in 2001 and a Grammy in 2002 for best female pop performance ("Like A Bird.") Graduated from Mount Douglas Secondary School in Victoria, B.C. Was a heavy smoker during her teenage years. Fan of Kylie Minogue and Dannii Minogue. Her third album "Loose" was released in June 2006 and reached #1 in US, Canadian and German charts.

Her parents named her after Soviet gymnast Nellie Kim. Will host the Juno Awards on April 1st, 2007 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Her father was a stonemason originally from Portugal.
