Two divas will meet to deliver a performance that will blow the roof off the joint on September 29, on Sunset Stage. IZA, with her bracing contemporary pop music, and Alcione, the most powerful voice of samba. Together at the biggest and best Rock in Rio ever.
Hailing from the suburban area of Rio de Janeiro, Olaria, IZA flaunted her voice for the first time on YouTube videos. The public started following the singer, and, in 2017, the single “Pesadão” did not go unnoticed, as it was played by the main radio stations and peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Brasil airplay chart. The music video featuring Marcelo Falcão has been viewed 220 million times. Her debut album came out in 2018, "Dona de Mim" fuses pop, R&B, reggae and jazz sounds. Not only did the songstress win over the critics, but she was also recognized both at the Women's Music Event Award, sweeping Best New Artist of the Year (2017), Best Song and Best Album (2018), and at the Multishow Award, where she won for Best Song (2018), in addition to being nominated for a Latin Grammy in the Best Portuguese-Language Contemporary Pop Album category. Currently, IZA splits her time between performing and participating in "The Voice Brasil", on Globo TV, every Tuesday and Thursday.
