SAN BENITO — Rush, The Guess Who and Nickleback are mainstream Canadian music artists the Valley loves.
Enter Felicia McMinn, a Canadian independent solo artist who is in the Rio Grande Valley visiting her Winter Texan parents.
And she has a show coming up Tuesday at the Fun N Sun RV Resort dance hall at 7 p.m.
“Music is my passion. Music is my life. When I write, rehearse or perform, that is when I am truly who I am,” McMinn said.
She has a vast catalog of cover songs and original material. She plays pop, rock, folk and even does a little bit of country for Texans.
She will be playing many music hits and original music at her upcoming show.
McMinn is from Port Dover, Ontario. Over the years, she has shared the stage with many music artists.
Since winning the Grand Prize of Norfolk Has Talent in 2012, Felicia has made music more than just a hobby.
McMinn has been playing live shows since she was 17. She has performed hundreds of shows throughout Canada, the U.S. and Costa Rica.
McMinn uses an acoustic Gibson guitar, which she calls an ax, to play a little bit of everything.
Her Tuesday night show starts at 7 p.m. and will last two hours.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” McMinn said. “My mom and dad are members of the park so I want to make them proud.”
