A gifted singer and songwriter with a huge charitable heart, 18-year-old Tenille has become an unstoppable force in Canadian country music. The Canadian Country Music Association has recently announced that she will be honored with the Slaight Music Humanitarian Award this year.
In 2011, she was awarded Alberta’s Female Artist of the Year and also nominated at the Canadian Country Music Awards as the youngest ever Female Artist of the Year. Tenille’s proudest achievement to date, however, has been founding, organizing, and hosting Big Hearts for Big Kids, a fundraiser that has raised more than $194,000 in the past three years for Grande Prairie’s Youth Emergency Shelter Society- the Sunrise House.
Tenille has also contributed to fundraising efforts for Slave Lake, Haiti, Canadian Cancer Relays, The Wounded Warriors Foundation, and she will be spending part of her summer with the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, sharing her joy of music with the kids at the Kananaskis camp. With her new radio single “Starts With You” currently released and an exciting schedule of upcoming events, Tenille has found time to finish her graduating year of high school and is currently working with Nashville producer Fred Mollin on her sophomore album, to be released in early 2013.
