About: Tatiana Barbosa
With "a vox to grace the masses" Tatiana Barbosa is unlike any pop artist you'll hear today. Capable of the edgy grit of Rihanna and the powerful emotion of Beyoncé, Tatiana’s distinctive and richly textured voice promises to be as prevalent and instantly recognizable as both of those mega stars.
Music became an important factor in Tatiana’s life when she was just eight years old, when she wrote her first song, Lost in Imagination. With brief stays in Alabama and Florida, Tatiana and her family eventually came back to New Jersey where she began to pursue her music in earnest. In high school, a memorable performance would turn her dream into her life's goal. "I was in a talent show and sung Rihanna's "Take a Bow". After I performed I was so excited and wanted to do it again and again. After that I got control of my stage shyness and I really knew that this is what I wanted to do."
With her stage fright in check Tatiana blossomed as a performer. At a recent performance in a talent showcase for Mayor Nutter of Philadelphia, audio went out and Tatiana was left without a live microphone. Un-phased and always professional, Tatiana immediately began singing acapella to the expectant audience. Three songs later, as audio was corrected, the crowd was in love with her.
This confident and empowered personality has found a natural niche in the Stop the Violence Campaigns sweeping the country. Tatiana took her stand against domestic violence with the recording of the song and video for Enough is Enough. The filming of the video broke the Guinness book of World Records for the largest video/choir in history. "It’s such a great record", says Tatiana "and definitely sends a strong message. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it, and I'm honored to have been a part of it."
Tatiana continues to work with songwriters and producers as she learns and master her craft. She loves recording and never shirks the long hours, late nights and little sleep that go hand in hand with that lifestyle.
Recording cover songs like Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and a version of “1+1” that rivaled Beyoncé’s has gained Tatiana a lot attention, but writing her own songs is an important part of Tatiana’s talent. Her sensitive and empowered songs, such as “Slow Down”, perhaps best express this young artist as she tells how her career comes first and love will have to wait
While many popular artists inspire Tatiana in her craft, like Keyshia Cole "because she speaks the truth and she's real", Maria Carey and Kerri Hilson; her most inspiring is the late King of Pop. "Michael Jackson inspired so many people with his music and never let anyone bring him down". Similarly for Tatiana, the opportunity to make a difference to people keeps her focused on her goal. "Music has always been a part of my life, it's how I express myself and it’s all I can see myself doing honestly.”
