Giorgia

ARTIST — pop, melodic

An Italian pop star with enough ennui to even make it worldwide, Giorgia debuted in 1993 with a self-titled album; the single “E Poi” became very popular in her native country. By 1995, she had won the competition at the prestigious San Remo Festival with “Come Saprei.” The success of that single made her resulting album, Come Thelma e Louise, her most popular yet.

Mangio Troppa Cioccolata, released in 1997, became the most successful album of her career, but follow-ups like 1999’s Girasole, 2001’s Senza Ali, and 2003’s Ladra Di Vento all reached at least five-times platinum certification. She released an MTV Unplugged set in 2005, and followed with her seventh studio album, Stonata, in 2007.

Giorgia holds the first place among the artists Italian women of her generation for number of weeks in the Fimi-Nielsen chart, and she has sold over 7 million records worldwide.
