Award-Winning Canadian Country Artist Tenille Performs At The 2014 Chengdu Youth International Music Festival In China
Award-winning Canadian Country artist, Tenille, has been invited to attend and perform at the annual 2014 Chengdu International Youth Festival in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China from July 23-29, 2014. Hosted by the Chengdu Municipal People’s Government and organized by the Chengdu Foreign Affairs Office, the festival, which began in 2007, has attracted musicians and cultural groups from the U.S., Europe and Australia. As Chengdu is Edmonton’s sister city, it is fitting that Tenille will be the first Canadian musician to perform at the festival since its inception.
“I am really looking forward to this summer’s adventures,” says Tenille. “This is the first time music will be taking me across an ocean and I am honoured to be a part of the Chengdu International Youth Music Festival representing Canada."
Most recently, Tenille hosted her fifth annual Big Hearts For Big Kids fundraiser, which has raised nearly $500,000 to date, with all proceeds going directly to Sunrise House, a Grand Prairie-based, emergency youth shelter that serves a wide area of Northern Alberta, Canada. Having wrapped her self-headlining Play It Forward Tour in December of last year, she visited over 41 schools and reached over 13,000 students in 13 weeks. Tenille continues to establish herself as a rising Canadian Country music star and a local humanitarian with a heart of gold. In 2013, the singer released her sophomore album Light (Royalty Records), which helped to garner an Alberta Country Music Association Award for Fans’ Choice and Female Artist of The Year. Additionally, she was honoured to receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. As founder of the Big Hearts For Big Kids initiative, she earned the Slaight Music Humanitarian Award at the 2012 Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) and in 2011 she became the youngest female artist ever to be nominated for Female Artist of the Year.
