“I’m just a fun, easy-going Portuguese girl who lives and breathes music!”

Born in Winnipeg, Ashley Leitao moved to Portugal when she was five before settling in Burnaby at the age of six. Ashley began singing when she was four “and it wasn’t long until I knew in my heart that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she says.

“Music and singing is all around in my family and is part of our everyday lives,” says the 18-year-old Sales Associate at Below the Belt. “Singing to me is like breathing – it just comes naturally.”

Ashley says her Canadian idol is Céline Dion. “I look up to the career she has and how far she’s come. She has an incredible voice and talent that can reach people of all ages.” The Canadian she admires most? Terry Fox, for “his strength and courage.”

Ashley’s favourite movie is Armageddon (“I love movies with a bit of romance and action”) and likes to read fantasy and sci-fi novels. She loves to eat, the Vancouver Canucks and Team Portugal and “loves, loves, loves” jeans. She likes to travel to Europe, camp and “bug” her brother.

What song title best describes Ashley? Faith – “because I’m a spiritual person and faith is what I turn to in my life when things get really rough.”

Ashley's family owns the Westview Bakery in North Vancouver, BC.
