Amalia Rodrigues

Biography

Portuguese folk singer and actress who was simply nicknamed the Queen of Fado due to her contributions towards the fado genre. She worked well as a documenting designer for five years. She was raised frantically poor in Portugal and began performing in the roads when she was an adolescent. She released singles like “La, la, la,” “Novo Fado da Severa,” and ” Fado perform Ciúme” during the period of her profession. She wedded Francisco Da Cruz in 1942 and, after their divorce in 1944, she remarried Cesar Seabra in 1961. She and Mariza had been both well-known fado performers from Portugal.
