In September and October Italian singer Giada Valenti will give a sneak peek of her new show “Tribute To Love” that she will film in December for PBS.
“Tribute To Love” is truly a unique and entertaining show that appeals to the romantic in all of us. Giada's great storytelling and emotional vocal skills takes her audience on a virtual trip through the most romantic places on earth, as she performs timeless songs as "Speak Softly Love (theme from the Godfather)", "More" (song from the movie "Mondo Cane"), "Caruso", "Mamma", "Tell Me When/Quando Quando Quando" and many songs of her new CD "And I Love You So", like "Cinema Paradiso", "It's Impossible", "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me/Io Che Non Vivo Senza Te" and "La Vie En Rose". Her talent is that she can sing as well powerful, with a lot of energy, with songs like “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, but also with a very soft voice when she sings “First Time Ever I Saw You Face”. All songs have new fresh arrangements.
Musical Director is Mr. A.T.N. Stadwijk who was for 15 years MD of Harry Belafonte, on drums Obed Calvaire who toured the last 3 years with Peter Cincotti, on bass Saadi Zain who played with many Broadway musicals, on guitar Ricardo Vogt who toured all around the world in the last years with Esperanza Spalding and Eliane Elias.
