HOOPSEARRING ELZA

EARRING ELZA


Product Description

The Earring Hoop Elza Owner of a powerful voice, who began singing with her father at the age of five, but without acceptance of her family. She was born in the Rio de Janeiro slum of Moça Bonita (present-day Vila Vintém) on June 23, 1930. At age 12 she was forced to marry and at 13 she was already a mother. He performed on hidden Tupi Radio, hoping to raise money to save his sick son, who died soon after.

At 21 years old, Elza had already veiled two children and also her first husband. At that time the despair was great, because she had five children to raise and did not work outside. But in the midst of the tragedy, a light came on: by becoming a widow, Elza finally managed to venture into the arts.

And, as we know, this venture ended up working. The characteristic hoarseness made Elza a unique artist on the national scene. Her legacy is so notorious that the London BBC elected her as the millennium singer in 2000.

There is no better word to define Elza Soares: Survivor. This is an 87-year-old lady, punished for life in every way. She faced hunger, poverty, childhood marriage, mass hatred, dictatorship (she and Garrincha have been exiled in Europe for years), the deaths of four of her seven children, domestic violence and - as if that were not enough - a terrible spinal problem in old age.

Just being alive is already remarkable and even more impressive to see that Elza refuses to stop quietly. On stage, you need to be seated and your breath is sometimes lacking. Still, the voice is still powerful - just like the spirit of this unbelievably strong woman.
