Fresh off her performance at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, Nelly Furtado ramped up promo for her upcoming album The Spirit Indestructible with an appearance on L.A.’s “KTLA Morning News.” The Grammy-winning songstress performed an acoustic version of “Say It Right” and her new single “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better).”
