Victoria Blackie

Victoria Blackie (Navajo) won "Debut Artist of the Year" from the Native American Music Awards in 2010. Victoria sings country music and her style is similar to country-music legend Patsy Cline. In 2002, Victoria performed at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Victoria started performing at the age of 8 and she continues to work toward her goal of breaking into the Nashville music scene. Victoria Blackie is a rising star and her first album Wanted Man has won various music awards.

Victoria has accomplished a lot of notoriety as an Independent recording artist and she is anticipating the release of her second album. Her second project pushed her as a song writer and hopes to continue her success as a recording artist.

Recently, Production Assistant Tobias Grant (Omaha) talked with Victoria after her performance on Stage 49 during the Gathering of Nations Powwow. Tobias asked Victoria about her music, her experience as a country music singer and her song: Remember America.
