Cover Me Canada contestant performs Friday night at Layback Lounge

Ali Milner, a past contestant on Cover Me Canada, is coming to Harrison Hot Springs.

The singer will perform at the Layback Lounge this Friday night (August 10) as she tours and performs around B.C.

Fans of the CBC hit show will remember Milner as the redhead with the smooth voice who sang Black Velvet with Canadian rocker Alannah Myles. She made it through eight weeks of the television series, placing third.

But she’s also been a part of Lilith Fair, sang in the closing ceremonies for the 2010 Paralympic Games and JunoFest 2009.

Her work can also be heard on CBC Radio 2 and 3, and ranges from R&B pop to old-soul jazz.

If you miss Milner tonight, she’ll continue touring with three stops in Kelowna this month, and one in Vancouver on September 13. For more details, visit alimilner.com.
