Shy-Anne Hovorka proved that she's a musical force to be reckoned with at the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. Shy-Anne won a record-breaking six awards in the categories of Aboriginal Female Entertainer of the Year, Single of the Year, Best Country CD, Best Producer/Engineer, Best Music Video, and Best Album Cover Design. This musical slam dunk has earned her the title of highest award-winning female in the history of the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards.
During the ceremony Shy-Anne took the opportunity to bring her mother up to the podium and honour her courage, and those of other women, in their battles against breast cancer.
The generosity of spirit Shy-Anne displayed on her big night is characteristic of her career as a singer, songwriter, and advocate for some of the most vulnerable members of our society. She uses her music as a vehicle to both heal and inspire. As Shy-Anne explains on her website, her dream is that her music, "will help others understand life, and realize they are not alone. Especially the children that are in foster care."
