Furtado first broke onto the music charts in 2000 with her debut single titled "I'm Like a Bird." The song quickly reached number one in Canada and peaked at the number nine spot on the Billboard charts.
She was awarded the 2001 Juno award for single of the year and in 2002 went on to win the Grammy award for best female pop vocal.
Furtado, who was born to Portuguese parents in Victoria, British Columbia took a brief break from the music world to have a daughter named Nevis.
After a second album which didn't have the same success, her third album called "Loose" was released in 2006 and became one of her most popular albums.
Songs like "Promiscuous", "Maneater", "All Good Things Come to an End" and "Say It Right" were all top selling singles.
Last year, Furtado released her Spanish album called "Mi Plan."
Most recently, Furtado was applauded in her home country for her performance during the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games.
