TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - Singer/ songwriter and TV personality Beverley Mahood took a step inside the G8 Summit tonight at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario. As the sole artist invited, she was hand picked to perform a concert at a private function for the leaders of the G8 countries. Performing a few songs from her own repertoire as well as a cover of the jazz standard, Sentimental Reasons, Beverley had world dignitaries mesmerized by her winning combination of talent and charm. Taking in the moment, Beverley reflected "I was there to provide a musical intermission from the important work that brought these leaders to Muskoka. It was an honour".

Beverley has been in Nashville for the last several months working with All Entertainment so expect to be hearing about a new album that is set to be released this autumn both in Canada and the US.
