From the album Diamond in the Rough
Featured track, available from May 16 to May 24
Ali Fontaine is having a busy spring. The up-and-coming country songstress picked up a Native American Music Award (NAMA) for Best Country Recording last weekend in Niagara Falls, New York, where she was also up for Songwriter of the Year and Best Female Artist. A double winner at the APCMAs in 2011, she has six nominations already for her first recording. Her single, "Fight for You" hit the #1 spot on the National Aboriginal Top 40 Countdown earlier this month and she's gearing up to shoot a new video for her song "Ignorance" from album Diamond in the Rough. Local audiences can catch Fontaine live when she takes stage at the Sagkeeng Arena Multiplex on May 19 for an album fundraiser show, along with a few friends including C-Weed. Meanwhile, you can download the chart-topping "Fight for You", this week's featured song.
