Nelly Furtado is one of those artists that represents the multi-cultural Canada we know and love.
Canadian by way of Portugal - more precisely, the Azores - where her parents lived before immigrating to Victoria, Nelly's style is all over the map: High-flying pop, folk music inspired by her Portuguese heritage, and of course, club anthems, like 'Maneater.'
That record sold millions, and Nelly being Nelly, she followed it up with a Spanish-language record, 'Mi Plan'.
Along the way, she's become a mom and she learned a lesson about international politics and showbiz when she accepted then donated to charity a private concert fee she received from the Gaddafi family.
Now, Nelly's returning to her pop and club roots with a new record: It's called 'The Spirit Indestructible'.
