Brazilian music superstar Ivete Sangalo, a Latin Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, will perform at the closing plenary session of the 2015 Rotary Convention in São Paulo, 9 June. Sangalo’s music is a high-energy fusion of Afro-Brazilian sounds called axé. She made her recording debut as lead singer of the group Banda Eva in 1993 on the album Banda Eva Ao Vivo, which included the 1994 carnival hit “Adeus Bye Bye.” After leaving Banda Eva, Sangalo made her solo album debut in 1999 and has since topped the charts with several albums and won numerous musical accolades.
Originally a host-ticketed concert, Sangalo’s performance has been rescheduled to be part of the closing plenary session so all attendees can enjoy her performance. All convention goers will be able to draw their convention experience to a close with this invigorating sample of Brazilian culture. Anyone who purchased a ticket to the originally scheduled HOC concert will receive a refund of the ticket price. (Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any refund questions.)
