Born in Morocco and raised in the rural town of Carman, Manitoba, Faouzia is a singer, songwriter, and a serious force to be reckoned with. Combining catchy pop rhythms, heartfelt lyrics, and powerhouse vocals, this teen is gaining new fans across the globe. Getting her start by posting song covers on her YouTube channel, Faouzia is self-taught, but has already become the first Canadian in history to win the Grand Prize award for the International Songwriting Competition, besting over 16,000 entries from 137 countries. Influenced by her Francophone and Arab parents, Faouzia’s music has an ephemeral power with the ability to both silence a crowd or whip them into a frenzy with her heart-wrenching ballads and magnetic stage presence.
