Schnurr's big number the same night was "A Broken Wing," by American country-pop star Martina McBride, sung to the contest audience in the "teen" category.

"She'd tell him about her dreams/He'd just shoot 'em down," sang Schnurr of Milton, belting out the high notes and abruptly descending into deep pools of spine-tingling country-style emotion.

"They say a 13-year-old is not supposed to have developed their ear as well as she has," said sister Amy Schnurr, 19, a contestant in the female open category.

"I guess that's why she's so entertaining – to see someone so young, and petite as well, have such a big voice come out of her."
Carly Schnurr said she first discovered she had a singing voice at 6.

"I used to sing a lot of pop ballads – Celine Dion, that kind of music," she said. "I got interested in country when I heard the fast-paced songs, like `Sun Wagon,' by the Dixie Chicks(her second contest selection)."

She is recording songs with Oshawa's Wellcraft Music Group with a view toward a professional career.

Carly Schnurr was born in 1994 and raised in Burlington Ontario, where she began singing at age 6. Carly sang on stage for the first time during a kid’s karaoke concert at a local vacation resort and soon began to develop her new talent and passion. By age 9 Carly was performing publicly as often as possible, feeding from inspirations like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Kelly Clarkson, but it wasn't until Carly discovered country music that she began to take her love for singing as a serious future career. Being exposed to idols like Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, and more recently Taylor Swift, Carly began to develop her own creative style and tone in her vocals and performance. In 2006 Carly entered her first talent competition, surprising the audience with her rendition of Celine Dion's "When You Look at Me” and making it to the finals in the Western Fall Fair. Also in 2006 and again in 2007 Carly performed at the annual Blues in the Park festival in Niagara falls with blues singer Steve Burnside and the Marquis band. Following this success, Carly expanded her horizons and joined a number of singing competitions in 2007, earning first place rewards for performances in The Ontario Country Open Contest (under 12), Burlington Idol Youth competition, and the Milton Steam Era Festival's Junior Talent Contest. Carly now resides in Milton, Ontario and has just been signed by Blue Sapphire/ Universal Music. Her debut album has been released to stores across Canada and her first two singles have hit the Canadian Country Music Charts at #81 and #94! As a Canadian singer, Carly hopes to make a big impression with the maturity of her voice and the youthfulness of her performance. Keep a lookout for this up and coming 15 year old with a big voice!
