Nelly Furtado Launches 2010 with Performance at the Olympics

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nelly Furtado, genre-bending global superstar, Grammy Award winner and native of nearby Victoria, British Columbia, kicks off what promises to be an extraordinary 2010 with a performance at the Vancouver Olympics. One of 12 major Canadian artists selected to perform at BC Place during the Olympics, with each concert paying tribute to that day’s medal winners, Furtado’s concert has the honor of being the first, on Sunday, February 14.

The acclaimed multiplatinum-selling singer-songwriter soon thereafter heads to Latin America for a 10-city tour that reaches Mexico, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela in support of platinum-selling Mi Plan, her fourth album and first entirely in Spanish. The disc’s first single, “Manos al Aire,” made history last summer when it soared to #1 on Billboard’s Latin singles chart, marking the first time a North American artist reached the top spot with a song originally written in Spanish. In addition, the single hit #1 in Italy, Germany, Colombia, Spain, US Latin, Chile, Central America and European charts, and Top 5 in Mexico, Spain and Argentina. Also, the album, Mi Plan hit #1 on the US Latin and Mexico charts.

Mi Plan is critically acclaimed and is garnering award nominations across the board. The disc earned two nominations at last year’s MTV Latin Music Awards and two at the Premios 40 Principales, Spain’s most important awards show. This year Nelly is nominated for two awards at the Premio Lo Nuestro 2010: Best New Artist (Latin artist), and Best Female Artist. The Premio Lo Nuestro awards take place in Miami on February 18 and broadcast live on Univision. In addition, she has also earned four nominations at the Billboard Latin Music Awards: Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, Female; Latin Pop Airplay Artist of the Year, Female; Tropical Airplay Artist of the Year, Female; and Latin Digital Album of the Year. The Billboard Latin Music Awards will take place in Puerto Rico on April 29 and will be broadcast live on Telemundo.
