Nova Nardi is a Canadian pop artist of Italian-Brazilian descent based in Toronto. Singing since the age of four, Nova honed her talents through the church choir. Growing up listening to pop, classical, and rock music, Nova was influenced by the likes of, Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and the list goes on; by the age of 16, Nova had started writing her own songs.
Her 2012 single “I’m Gonna Be a Pop Star” appeared on the TV show Dance Moms, and was later featured on a slew of networks, including the E! Emmy Awards “Live from the Red Carpet,” MTVU Fandom Awards, Grammy Awards “Countdown to the Red Carpet” and the E! “Countdown to the Golden Globes” repeatedly between 2012 and 2015.
Although Nova is a performer at heart, she struggled with stage fright for many years so between 2012 – 2015 she began performing live regularly. For the next few years, Nova dove deeper into songwriting and was determined to find her ‘true voice’. “There are so many things one can write about, but I found myself asking, what do I really want to say or what kind of messages do I want to share with others?” It was a self discovery period for me and I had to go through it to find my voice.”
Nova Nardi is an advocate for mental health and has been involved in charity performances and fundraiser concerts since 2011. Using her talent and passion to help benefit charitable causes, she has become a member of the Caring for Young Minds (CYM) organization in 2018. Fluent in English, Portuguese and French, Nova’s music is a way of connecting with people around her. Nova released her debut EP, I Want Your Love, in 2019. She is currently working on new music, and getting ready to put on many fun, touching, and entertaining shows.
Nova agreed happily to be a guest on the Friday Night Showcase Pre-Game. During the interview, Nova described her beginnings as a musician while sharing a couple of relatable moments with D-Maxx and Big Al about love and how crazy it can be having feelings for someone. Nova’s overall message is that about love and positive vibes. There seems to be an abundance of negativity and a lack of love and understanding in the world but not with Nova Nardi. This bubbly pop star continues to use her music to spread the love and happiness to everyone who listens to it.
