The rags-to-riches story of Canadian superstar Shania Twain has become legendary. Although impoverished materially as a child, she was instilled with a strong sense of pride by her family. Even then, music played an important role in her day-to-day life. Today, she enjoys enormous success, yet she remains true to her roots. Dedicated to eliminating child hunger, she supports a number of food distribution agencies like food banks and breakfast programs in schools. From small-town Ontario to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry, her journey has inspired countless other emerging musicians.
