GeneralWinner of multiple awards and singing contests, Manuela is singing since she was still a little child, having already sung in the most prestigious auditoriums all across Portugal. Today, her versatile mezzo-soprano voice has grown and transformed into a voice capable of the most powerful and also delicate sounds. With a range of 4 octaves, she adapts herself to any genre, from jazz and soul to rock, world music or even classical repertory. Once you hear it, you won't forget it.
