By embracing different cultures and genres, she has helped define musical diversity for a new generation ever since unleashing her debut, 2000's double-platinum Whoa, Nelly!, which spawned I'm Like A Bird, followed by 2003's gold Folklore, whose Forca became the official anthem of the 2004 European Cup Football Championship.
In 2009, she released her first Spanish-language album, the Latin Grammy Award-winning Mi Plan, which reached No. 1 on the U.S. Latin Billboard chart and swept Canada's Juno awards with five wins including Album of the Year.
