Lil’Bit earns second Juno nod

Richmond’s Elaine “Lil’Bit” Shepherd has been nominated for a second Juno Award.

Announced Tuesday, Shepherd is nominated in Reggae Recording of the Year for “Move Ya.”

The Juno Awards take place at Regina’s Brandt Centre Sunday, April 21, and will be hosted by Michael Bublé. Leading the way with nominations this year is B.C.’s Carly Rae Jepsen with five.

This won’t be Shepherd’s first trip to the Juno Awards. In 2011, she also won Reggae Recording of the Year, netting the prize for her song “Likkle But Mi Tallawah.”

Born in Bahrain, Shepherd is a Richmond Secondary grad who netted first place in the first RichCity Idol competition in 2004.
