The record required massive production and preparation and featured the Dutch jazz and pop orchestra, The Metropole Orkest, conducted by Jules Buckley. It won the Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, and was nominated for Best Producer.

She attended Humber College in the mid-90s on her path to becoming the celebrated international touring are recording artist that she is today.
