Back on September 3rd Canadian pop singer Nelly Furtado debuted her rendition of Rush's Time Stand Still at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL. You can check out a video of the performance including some behind-the-scenes footage at this link. The song is featured in the Canadian film Score: A Hockey Musical which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last month and stars Furtado as an ardent hockey fan. A studio recording of the track was released to Furtado's YouTube channel yesterday and you can listen to it below or at this link (thanks Sean).
