Feist honored with Canada's Polaris Prize
September 26, 2012
Canadian singer Feist was recently honored with the country's Polaris Prize, according to Music-News. The honor is given to a musician chosen by a panel of 10 people. This year Feist was up against Drake, Kathleen Edwards, Grimes, the Handsome Furs and Japandroids among a few more.
When Jeremy Gara and Tim Kingsbury of Arcade Fire, who won last year, announced Feist as the winner, she was hiding underneath the table, and was reportedly absolutely stunned by the honor she received, according to the media outlet.
"I've had a phenomenal night," Feist said while receiving her award. "I've been having such an unbelievably good time sitting here, watching this cavalcade of really good music. Everyone had a favorite here tonight, and I did too and I did not think it was me. I'm just really shocked and really, really grateful to be a part of the night."
