Strong performed at the halftime show for the Saskatchewan Rattlers on Thursday night and has also been involved in a fundraiser for a tiny homes project in Prince Albert, but said she would like to start touring with her music.

Kurt Dahl, Strong’s entertainment lawyer, said Strong has a special voice.

“She’s really high in demand,” Dahl said.

“What’s special and what’s rare is voice that connects with millions of people the second they hear it, and to me, that’s what Rebecca has.”

Dahl said Strong has offers on the table from all across the country and it’s just a matter of picking the best ones.
