biography

Nelly's eclectic 2000 double platinum debut Whoa, Nelly!, which spawned "I'm Like A Bird" was followed by the gold 2003 Folklore, whose "Forca" became the official anthem of the 2004 European Cup Football Championship. 2006's double platinum, #1-debuting Loose spotlighted the platinum, Grammy-nominated "Promiscuous" along with the hits "Say It Right" and "Maneater." Loose has been certified platinum in 32 countries and sold nearly 10 million copies worldwide and won the 2007 Brit Award for the International Female Solo Artist. In 2009, Mi Plan, her first album entirely in Spanish, made history when the single "Manos al Aire" soared to #1 on Billboard's "Hot Latin Songs" chart, marking it the highest debut of 2009 for Latin Pop album and the first time a North American artist had reached the top spot with a song originally written in Spanish. The album went on to be a #1 hit on Billboard's "Top Latin Album," as well as iTunes and Amazon Latin music charts. In 2010, Nelly joined producer Bob Ezrin and Young Artists For Haiti in singing K'NAAN's "Wavin' Flag" where all proceeds go to Free The Children, War Child Canada and World Vision Canada.
