Fenom – Give a Little [Audio]
Winnipeg, MB – We’ve been bumping a lot of dope music from Peg City the past few days. HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day is an uplifting joint called “Give a Little” by the first lady of The Bonafide Collective, Fenom. We originally posted this track on the Canadian Choice Cuts back in June 2008.
Song of the Day
(Taken from her MySpace profile so it could be a little dated.)
Fenom is a singer/songwriter, and unknown to some, a talented lyricist. Quite content in her hometown of Winnipeg, MB (though ready to take on the world), she has been performing since the age of 5, first becoming involved in the art of dance. Growing up, she had the opportunity to sing in various competitions as well as tour Western Canada with a Performing Arts group.
Now all grown up, she has chosen to take her passions to the next level. She joined the Winnipeg Hip Hop crew, BONAFIDE and things snowballed from there. Promoters began to notice that perhaps there were some “Lauryn Hill-esque” qualities in the group’s lone female member. Collectively, the decision was made to push Fenom as a solo artist, and she has since been a feature on College and Commercial radio, performed at Toronto’s Honey Jam, and collaborated on projects with the likes of New Edition, Megan Rochelle, and many others!
Embracing her Caribbean roots, she is also quite proud to be heavily involved in Reggae music. She held the 2 spot on Galaxie Reggae station’s charts with the hit, Lover’s Paradise (featuring Mello Man) and she has also had the privilege to open for award-winning artists: Sean Paul, Beanie Man, and Singing Melody.
So what’s next for this up-and-coming songstress/lyricist? Folks are coining her “the next Nelly Furtado” due to her cross-border appeal, unique look, and strong vocals, so hopefully the 4-song EP she has created with the help of Manitoba Film & Sound will help get her music in the right hands…so please stay tuned!
