"Navajo Songbird" Named Debut Artist Of The Year

SALT LAKE CITY, UT - Who is Victoria Blackie? "Country Music's Next Big Star". She launched her career as an Independent Artist and traveled to Nashville in 2008 to record her first Album "Wanted Man" which was later released in 2009. The song from the album that is playing across America and Europe is "Don't Make Me Love You" composed by Tom Shapiro and Allen Anderson. The Album was the door opener to showcase her talent to the world that she has what it takes to be a successful country artist. She is a petiti 5'1 powerhouse that only leaves you wanting more after each concert. She is serious about her career, knows what she wants and is very grateful to all the media and fans that are following her career on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Myspace.

A Star in the making? She started singing at a very early age and took dance , violin, guitar and voice lessons. She has sung the National Anthem for small and very large crowds, city officials and dignitaries and received great accolades. She was a solo performer on a 7 week tour to Japan with a pop teen group at the age of 13 and sang at the 2002 Winter Olympics. No she just didn't start recently, this has been a life time of preparation.

Mainstream artist is her goal. Many Native American Artists struggle in making a transition into the mainstream world of the entertainment industry. There are 565 federally recognized American Indian tribes and Alaska Natives in the United States. They are very supportive to their artists and set the stage for them in festivals, pow-wows, conventions, rodeos and more. "They Are Successful", and this succesful Native Artist comes with a great following and great admiration. They need great role models in the music industry and Victoria is definitely one of them. This is not only about the "Voice" but about the genuine person that she is and is a symbol of someone who is determined and has the talent to withstand the test of time. Her powerful voice is here to stay.

Victoria is a person of vision. Yes this year was the "Nammys" next time will be the "Grammys" it's just a matter of time. Victoria has been rubbing shoulders with other successful Native American Entertainers such as Wes Studi tribal chief Eytukan in Avatar. West Studi was the emcee at the 12th Annual Native American Music Awards and publicly praised this young singer after her powerful live performance of "Remember America" His advice to Victoria was "stick with it". She met Grammy winner Bill Miller at the Trickstar Gallery in Chicago where she performed. Victoria was speechless after Millers' spectacular performance .

Victoria has a busy schedule, rehearsals, promotions and performances. January 14th and 15th she will be performing at the "NAMM Show" in Anaheim, California. She will also be singing as an invited guest with Shawn Michael Perry. A Song written by Perry that has all the makings of a "Great Country Hit Song" 4 Ever N' My Heart. He had the opportunity to share this song with some mainstream popular country females, however he decided that Victoria's voice takes the song to a heart wrenching level.

What's next for Victoria Blackie? She spends many hours working on promoting her upcoming tour to the Southwest . No she doesn't have the backing of a major record deal like Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood but she's got determination and the vocal chords to keep going and one day she will reap the rewards of ther her hard work. Don't be surprised if the Star herself calls saying "Hello I am calling from Victoria Blackie's Public Relations office now scheduling her 2011 Summer Tour".
