About Ivete Sangalo

Brazilian axé music superstar Ivete Sangalo debuted as the lead singer of Banda Eva in 1993 with an eponymous album. The album spawned the carnival hit "Adeus Bye Bye." After leaving Banda Eva at the height of the group's popularity, Sangalo made her solo debut in 1999 with Ivete Sangalo, a double-platinum blockbuster. Subsequent solo albums include Beat Beleza (2000), Festa (2001), MTV ao Vivo (2004), As Super Novas (2005), and Multishow ao Vivo (2007). MTV ao Vivo was especially successful, selling over two-million copies and winning a 2005 Latin Grammy Award. In 2008, Sangalo teamed up with Saulo Fernandes to form the children's music duo Veveta e Saulinho and release the album A Casa Amarela. ~ Jason Birchmeier
