Singer Recommendation: Giorgia

I don’t know how many of you already know her – she’s not famous at all in Iran because a very small percentage of people listen to Italian music. Of course, she’s globally famous, and if you’re interested in Pavarotti and Friends series (I love them) you have already seen her. Anyway, she’s a singer I really adore, because I think she does magic by her voice. I usually don’t like listening to music without understanding lyrics, but Italian music in general is so beautiful that I make an exception. Among Italian singers Giorgia is my favorite.

She has released an album last year, with two awesome singles:

    I really like her performance of “I’ll Stand By You”, on you tube. I think it’s even better than who wants to live forever.

    Thanks for bringing her to our attention.

    Ciao.

    I found a live recording of her doing Man in the Mirror and was blown away. Thanks for the recommendation!
