Aselin Debison is a Canadian pop/Celtic singer, sometimes known affectionately as Azi, either by herself or her fanbase.
Born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Aselin was named after Aslan, the lion in C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia. She began her singing career in 1999, when she was asked to sing at a rally of protesting miners in her hometown. Soon after this performance she began working on a Christmas album The Littlest Angel which was released in 2001. In 2002, she was spotted by Sony Classical president Peter Gelb at the East Coast Music Awards. Her debut album Sweet is the Melody appeared that same year.
In 2003, Aselin Debison was chosen to sing for Queen Elizabeth II at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, Ontario, during her visit to Canada for her Jubilee celebration.
Aselin sang with country music artist Bruce Guthro on a CBC special entitled "Aselin Debison: Sweet is the Melody". She performed selections from her debut album and also classic Cape Breton Island songs, such as the Island's anthem. During her tour to promote "Sweet Is The Melody," she performed in New York and Tokyo, Japan.
