Paula Santoro is one of the greatest singers of her generation. She was born in Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais) and has been living in Rio de Janeiro for many years. With several works on stage, recording studios and television, she has steadily gained more recognition from 2002 on, when she was one of the winners of the Visa Music Prize. She won the Trophy Faísca twice as best singer in Minas Gerais, and was nominated for Best Singer in the Rival Petrobrás de Música Award.
In 2017, Paula was nominated for the Profissionais da Música Award for Best Singer and for the US Press Awards in four categories: Best Singer, Best Album, Best Brazilian Artist and Best Show.
