Aurea’s unique, powerful and charming voice has success written all over it. At the tender age of 24, she is already among Portugal’s top musical acts and was hailed the voice of the nation in 2010. Within a few months her self-titled debut album topped the Portuguese national sales charts, achieving the Double Platinum certification. Her live album, Aurea - Ao Vivo no Coliseu dos Recreios, recorded in November 2011 and released a month later, achieved the certified Gold status on the very date of its release. The singer recorded a duet with Elvis Presley for the album “Love me Tender” (approved by his own family and included in the Viva Elvis Collection), and her debut album reached and stayed at No. 1 for 9 weeks in a row. The single “Busy (For Me)” was one of the most played songs on Portuguese radio in 2011.

Aurea was nominated in the Best Song, Best New Act and Best Solo Performer categories at the 2011 Portuguese Golden Globes, and she won the latter award. She also took home the award for Best Portuguese Act at the MTV European Music Awards. Internationally, Aurea has been released in Hungary, where she recorded a duet for the track “Where is the Love” with Nikolas Takács and also performed live. Taiwan has also hosted a release of the singer’s record, as well as an unforgettable live performance. Aurea had a very busy year, with over 70 shows on her national tour including some of the most prestigious venues, music festivals and events in Portugal.
