Claudia Leitte became known as Claudia Leitte Alves when she was cast as the lead vocalist in the Brazilian sensation Gon Alo. Gon Alo is a fictional soap opera, which chronicles the story of a beautiful woman from Brazil. Leitte sings, and her distinctive vocal style has made her the star of many a television program and album. Claudio Leitte was cast as Claudia in the TV show Gon Alo, which made her one of the most popular singers from udica, which is the principal language in Brazil. Besides being in a musical, this woman also appeared in a movie, doing an episode entitled “Girl from Uda”.
The singer began her musical career performing as a member of the tango band Los Tigres Blondi. After leaving the band, she joined the band Las Ticas and went on to release several singles, including “Bailand”, “Paraiba” and “Hips Don’t Lie”. Her first album was entitled Paraiba, which translates to “ashes”. Her second album, titled Urganda was not as well received by the listeners, however it was considered a success because it introduced a new vocal style in which she showcased her unique vocal range. This set the stage for Claudia Leitte to develop her own sound, which she achieved with the release of her third album named negalora. The album was critically acclaimed, and her reputation grew to such an extent that many producers asked her to create a follow up album to Paraiba.
In the album that was released in 2021, Claudia Leitte returned to her roots as a singer. Her latest album was very diverse, and featured artists like Kele Okereke, Enya and Kasra Alway. The album did not receive the popularity it had prior to its release, however it did become one of the mainstream successes of the year, and many critics wrote about how great she performed. Leitte was able to stay at the forefront of musical style and sound by releasing singles from this album that exhibited her vocals as well as her usual dynamic style of singing. Her voice was not as prominent on these singles, but still managed to make an impact on listeners because of her performance.
The first single from Claudio Leitte’s forthcoming album called votive was released just before the end of last year. This single showcased a slower paced tempo that slowly built throughout the song, which gradually increased in intensity as it reached the end. This slow tempo was further emphasized when Claudia Leitte took the microphone and performed a solo rendition of “Girl from Ipanema” from Brazil. During the outro section of the song, Leitte repeated the first verse but slowed it down considerably. This minor change added a bit more complexity and appeal to the song, which made it a much more memorable track for fans of Claudio Leitte.
Alessia Lopes & David Gutta’s The Memory of Light is expected to be released in March of next year. The album is expected to be a collaboration of sorts, as both artists have a strong musical style that will be very pleasing to many music lovers. One can expect a captivating mix of genres on this album, as Alessia and David are both vocalists that specialize in romantic ballad songs. This past album, titled Memories of Light, also saw a collaboration between the band and the movie Brave. Hopefully The Memory of Light will bring fans even closer to the band, as they continue to develop and expand their fan base.
