Chilliwack’s Mauvey Win’s Big at 2020 Fraser Valley Music Awards

Abbotsford – 16 new Fraser Valley Music Awards winners were crowned last night in a live FM and internet video stream broadcast that can be viewed now on-demand through youtube.

11 first time winners each took home a single category, while both Abbotsford’s Jada Klein (RnB) and Aldergrove’s Shamir Virgo (BIMPOC) won a single category themselves, as well as both being runners up in the #DakotaLeslieMemorialFanVote, earning $670 and $1,750 respectively, in addition to the $350 from their individual category wins, thanks to hundreds of fans voting to support them each. The big winner of the night, though, was Chilliwack’s Mauvey, who closed the show by joining the broadcast via phone link around 5 am local time in London, England, where he’s been for the most recent leg of the COVID-19 pandemic.
