Ive Mendes - A Beira Mar by Mr Bongo published on 2011/07/27 10:01:05 +0000 http://www.mrbongo.com/department/ive-mendes-10049 Dubbed ‘The Brazilian Sade’ Ive Mendes makes an impression on everyone she meets. With her sultry latin looks, infectious personality and an incredible talent for both writing and singing, it's easy to see why she is already a superstar in her native Brazil, as well as in Japan (where she is signed to EMI) and Spain. Her debut album features a collection of her own songs in both English and Spanish. Having learnt English through song writing, Ive is now produced by the legendary Robin Millar (Sade, Everything But The Girl) who was bowled over by her voice after she sang into his answering machine. Her songs are primarily about love but also cover all aspects of her life and reflect her Brazilian roots and latin passion.
