Roveena with special guest Ben Pelchat at C'est What?
Over the past year, vocal powerhouse ROVEENA has been taking the music scene by storm. With her music approaching a million spins on Spotify and shattering 8 Millions views in a YouTube video collaboration. Roveena has emerged reborn with her powerful sophomore album which picked up two awards. Most notably, Roveena's single 'Fearless' was featured during CBC's televised coverage of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics.
Roveena received critical acclaim, with her quickly being recognized as "a stunning voice that needs to be heard" and garnered attention from various media and radio outlets, including glowing reviews from CBC Radio and Cheek Magazine. Roveena's musical breakthrough happened after she reluctantly posted a video of herself singing "At Last" on YouTube. Catching the eyes of the Toronto's CITY TV producers and landing a guest spot to perform on the show, Roveena dazzled the hosts with the power of her voice so much that a planned one minute segment turned into eight minutes - an appearance that would launch Roveena's career.
Her album Fearless is available now.
