A successful singer, songwriter, actress, model, and television host, Beverley Mahood is truly a dynamic entertainer. She returned to radio/video, in 2013 with “Hope and Gasoline”, her first single in 4 years. Says Beverley – “Lyrically, for me, it speaks of returning to, and starting fresh, with my first love, music. My life has been interesting and somewhat challenging but music has always been the steadying influence”. A new studio album, also titled “Hope and Gasoline” is due out in late 2014. A new single, “Sunday I’m an Angel” is currently running up the charts at radio.
Though in many respects a seasoned veteran of the entertainment industry, Mahood’s career is set for a new beginning. Her past includes several albums, Girl Out of the Ordinary (1998), Moody Blue (2004), Unmistakable (2009) and a partnership with David Foster on the female trio, Lace (1999), each album as diverse and acclaimed as the entertainer herself.
Beverley’s audience broadened in 2004 when she began hosting TV shows, the latest being the hit, “Pick A Puppy”, a family-oriented series seen on CMT (Canada) and GAC (USA). Add this, to a lead role in the 2014 TV-movie, Changing Seasons; songwriting credits which include Celine Dion; a performance schedule that has included exclusive performance for the G8 World Leaders, CDN Troops, The Royal Couple; a commitment to community that rivals her passion for entertaining, and the unique character of Beverley and her career shines through.
Beverley is a devoted supporter of Canada’s Food Banks with a focus on children. “As artists, we have the privilege of a voice and a stage. We have a responsibility to use that privilege so those without can be heard. Children need that voice.” Beverley is currently the national spokesperson for the Pink Mitten Campaign (Breast Cancer Research); 2014 was her 17th year hosting Saskatchewan’s, Kinsmen, Telemiracle, and she has been part of the Magna family in their charitable endeavors since 1998.
