Mariza – Fado Em Mim
Fado is a Portuguese type of music and it's a very flowery, inventive, spontaneous singing. The first time I heard her, I just went ‘wooof’ – this energy and the joy of feeling the voice. The song by her I would choose is ‘Chuva’. In most of the songs I choose there is a point where your heart just says, ‘This is what I'm aiming for.’
