LOS ANGELES, CA Friday Feb.16.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Nelly Furtado fans owe a great deal of gratitude to Oasis.

The singer has revealed that it was the Brit-pop band who inspired her to pursue a career in music, and gave her the guts to take on such a tough business.

Furtado said, "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Oasis. I bought my first acoustic guitar because of them and the first tracks I learned to play were Live Forever and Wonderwall."

She added, "I was inspired by their working-class roots because that's the kind of background I come from."
