Making a good start in her return to music industry with her third full-length album of "Loose" which superbly soared to the 1st rank of The Billboard 200 in its first week on the chart, Nelly Kim Furtado, unlike the LP's title, looks eager to do everything to keep her grasp stayed firm and tight in the business for sure judging from some moves she has set to carry out during the year 2006. Included in the list are few live gigs in her homeland, Canada, by the month of July which cover the cities of Trois-Rivieres, Calgary, Ottawa, and Edmonton followed by others at Summersonic Festival in Osaka and Tokyo, Japan on August 12 and 13, respectively alongside the likes of Tool, Muse, Matisyahu, plus AFI. However, among these worth to earn greater attention from fans presumably could be her first major starring role opposite Brad Renfro in Jason Lehel's indie feature of "Nobody's Hero" aimed to be released later of the year as they wait patiently for the coming out of her 4th single from "Loose", "Te Buque."
