Happy Nelly Furtado Day

Back in 2007 the City of Victoria proudly proclaimed March 21st as Nelly Furtado Day. ‘We are thrilled to welcome home Victoria’s own Nelly Furtado!’ said Mayor Lowe in making the announcement. ‘While Nelly has reached the apex of international music stardom, she continues to enjoy a special relationship with Victoria and has maintained close ties to this community. We all take great pride in her accomplishments and in claiming her as one of our own,’ he added.
