Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I'm a 29 years old guy born in Brazil, but i grew up in Italy since i was a child. Grew up listening to soul, jazz, gospel, blues & funk since i was tiny, singing in front of a mirror downstairs pretending to be on a stage. I had the loss of my parents at a young age, so i had to deal with a lot of stuff and had to put my biggest passion aside, but when you have a real passion, it will hunt you forever no matter what, so i finally decided, through a lot of obstacles, to record a few songs that i wrote, since i discovered the passion in writing as well. Grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Billie Holiday, Donny Hathaway, Ella Fitzgerald, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, Mahalia Jackson, Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Nina Simone, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan, Seal, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson, Etta James, John Legend, Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera and all the soul/jazz/blues/r&b singers from the 40's all the way to the 90's, and they've "virtually" been my vocal coaches...
