"'The Natural embodies the longed- for qualites of childhood - spontaneity, sincerty, unpretentiousness"
When I read this part of the book one image immediately came to my head that is the gorgeous Brazilian singer Ivete Sangalo.
When my sister first introduced me to her years ago right away I was fascinated with this woman. She is the most famous singer in Brazil, let’s say she’s the Beyonce of Brazil.
When she gets on stage is like you are being introduced to the real person. Is not the “”Sasha fierce” of Beyonce or the alter-ego of Shakira. Ivete is genuine, charming, talented and she’s not afraid of being silly and unconventional on stage: she smiles, she cries, she show off her legs, her butt. For me Ivete doesn’t put on a show…she IS the show! When I see her performing it seems real and that’s why many Brazilians feel so connected with her. They all feel like she is part of the family or maybe part of themselves.
Check this video of her last DVD concert (I AM SO EXCITED I’M GOING TO THE NEXT ONE IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!!!!!!)
Jump to the 1:06 mark to see her in action…and props at the 4:28 mark for being able to whistle with a leather glove on! Haha…LOVE HER.
