Bio

Imagine a 15-year-old girl, full of spirit, stepping up to the mic at the famed GX94 contest in 2002. This enormous challenge took her on a whirlwind journey through numerous towns, battling through elimination rounds, and finally to the spotlight on the grand finale night. And then, she sang the final note of "A Broken Wing" by Martina McBride, sparking a thunderous wave of cheers and applause that shook the venue! It was Teagan Littlechief’s debut standing ovation, but oh, it was just the beginning! She etched her name in history as the first from the First Nations community to clinch the GX94 title, marking the start of an extraordinary series of firsts, all with her Cree pride held high.

Inspired by Pop sensations Celine Dion and the late Selena, it is Country Music where Teagan found her comfort zone. Those early influences of Celine and Selena can still be heard today through Teagan's powerhouse vocals, and lack of fear to hit those high notes others fear to. 

Teagan's powerful voice was recognized early in her career, and she was quickly racking up #1 songs on the Indigenous Canadian Charts. Her first #1 in 2013 and her second in 2015. Under direction of renowned Artist Rep Deborah Wood (Michelle Wright) Teagan opened for acts such as Emerson Drive, played Casino's, and played many Festivals, Bow Valley Jamboree Music Festival, Muskoday Music Festive, Craven, and Country Thunder to name a few. 

 Teagan has played one of the largest stages in Canada; the 109th Canadian Grey Cup. Not only did Teagan sing the National Anthem, but she also made history singing the Anthem in 3 languages: English, French and Cree. Her performance created a flood of social media attention and mainstream attention. A simple X formerly known as Twitter search will bring up a post shared by the CFL, TSN, 

Teagan is a well-known Anthem singer for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Her incredible voice led to the National spotlight not just on Teagan but on her White Bear Nations Band as she sang the National Anthem at the 109th Grey Cup Championship game for the 2022 season in Regina SK, in English, French, and Cree. “I’m so thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to showcase Indigenous language & culture at the Grey Cup in my home province.”-Teagan Littlechief
