Shy-Anne Hovorka wins 4 Aboriginal Peoples' Choice Music Awards
Singer-songwriter plans to retire from performing after second big win at APCMA
Singer-songwriter Shy-Anne Hovorka is retiring on a high note.
The musician from northwestern Ontario picked up four Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards this weekend in Winnipeg.
The Best Country CD, Best Entertainer, Best Single and Best Album Cover awards are in addition to six APCMA awards she won in 2012.
"Thanks for all your continued support. I love you all," Hovorka posted on her Facebook page on Saturday, along with photos of all her awards.
Hovorka announced her retirement from performing earlier this year, saying she wants to devote herself more fully to teaching young people in northwestern Ontario. She works as a teacher in Nipigon, Ont.
This year's awards come for Hovorka's fourth album, 'Bones' and the single from it, 'Be Your Girl.'
