Bebel Gilberto, who was born on May 12, 1966 in New York, is a very famed Brazilian singer that was born in New York City.  Several times, Bebel is associated with bossa nova, which is a very singular style of Brazilian music that was firstly introduced to Bebel by her father João Gilberto.  On the other hand, Miucha, who is a very well-known singer in Brazil, is her mother.  In addition, her uncle is the composer and singer called Chico Buarque.  Thus, since Bebel Gilberto was a young girl, she has been performing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

When she was only seven years old, she appeared in her mother’s first solo album that was called “Miucha.”  Two years later, she made a great performance at the Carnegie Hall in conjunction with her mother and the Jazz saxophonist Stan Getz.  Moreover, Bebel participated in the performance and recording of the soundtrack of a musical for children that was called “Os Saltimbancos.”  Later on, she founded the “Circo Volador”, which was a performance space in an experimental theatrical at Ipanema Beach.  By this time, Bebel began composing songs in conjunction with prestigious artists, including Dé, with whom she wrote her first success called “Preciso Dizer Que Te Amo."

Afterwards, Bebel Gilberto moved to New York.  In this place, she made a great amount of performances in several famed bars such as the bar at the top of the World Trade Center, The Ballroom and The Rainbow.  Some time later, she moved to London, where she started working on her album named Tanto Tempo.  This album sold more than a million copies all over the world.  In fact, she was nominated to the Latin Grammy for this album too. However, Bebel was given a MOBO award in the United Kindom and a nomination for the Grammy for the follow-up album, Bebel Gilberto.  Today, Bebel lives in New York City, single and plans the album she will release this year.
