Nelly Furtado, reader and writer


Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado participated this week on the Scotiabank Giller Prize ceremony, that each year highlights the best of her country's literature. She presented Half-Blood Blues, the book written by Esi Edugyan, the winning nominee. The story, that Nelly called "a beautiful song conceived in prose" that consumed her when reading it, follows 3 black musicians from 1940's Berlin to an occupied France in their journey to evade the nazis.


Nelly herself was praised this week by flamenco singer Antonio Carmona, with whom she collaborated on his song 'Camino de los sueños', from his latest album 'De Noche'. Carmona said "it was wonderful working with her because behind that beautiful face there's an excellent songwriter. (She) is elegant, down to earth and, like me, enjoys our profession and our music"
