New York (June 11, 2007)–Nelly Furtado is deeply ensconced in the middle of a world tour behind her platinum-selling album Loose; along for the ride are a pair of Sennheiser evolution microphones in white and gold that were specially made for the singer.

Furtado asked Sennheiser to make a special version of her favorite microphone, the SKM 935 from the “evolution wireless” series, in white and gold. “That’s two wishes come true,” she said. “I get perfect sound and it looks great; really going together with the design of the show.”
As it turns out, all microphone and monitoring technology for the stage show is provided by Sennheiser. “I think it’s really fantastic for my show to use Sennheiser equipment,” she said. “It gives me more confidence and security.”
“We have to make sure night after night that everything is perfect,” said Jeffrey Holdip, head sound engineer on Furtado’s tour. “With the Sennheiser equipment–wireless microphones, wireless monitoring and wireless system management–we know that the technical part will not fail, and that we get exactly the sound we want Nelly to have. Other things might fail, but not these, and that gives us a lot of confidence.”
