Anna Maria Soprano
Anna Maria’s is fascinating and inspiring story: from great loss, to even a greater story of her rebirth, redemption and restoration on both a personal and artistic level.
All the events of her life molded her into an amazing vibrant woman of strength and gentleness, with a passion and love for life.
Like a pearl that is formed and begins to grow. Out of pain and suffering, it forms an object of great beauty. The harmful or invading particle to the oyster actually becomes a gem of great worth.
So who is Anna Maria?
Anna Maria Soprano (her married last name is Cavicchia) was born Anna Maria Caserta on August 16, 1970 in the North Eastern Italian city of Udine, between the Austrian and Slovenian border, not too far from Venice.
Her childhood was quite different from other children, whereas her mother Cecilia is deaf mute and her father hearing impaired. Both her younger brother Antonio and Anna Maria were raised in a loving, but silent household.
As a child her father Innocenzo would buy old classical records for her to listen. That is were her love for music was molded, especially classical music.
Her gift of singing was realized when she was 18 years old.
Her life became artistically busy between her music studies, first performances and various music competitions.
She eventually married a very popular Italian Illusionist.
In 1998, she moves to the Dominican Republic and then in 2001, to Philadelphia, PA, USA, with a work visa as performer.
At this point Anna Maria had a rich, vibrant, successful and productive artistic life, although her private life was in shamble.
Her marriage of 16 years was composed of a regular diet of
psychological and physical abuses, often just minutes before stepping into stage. Eventually carrying the burden of a perfect public life and at the same time the secrecy of a distressed private one, took its toll.
In November 2003, Anna Maria returned to Italy, completely drained; her self esteem depleted and extreme anxiety causing the complete loss of her voice.
This time of extreme trial was just about to come to a tragic hopeless ending if wasn’t for Divine intervention when one night seeing herself between a rock and a hard place and no way out, opted for the horrible, extreme measure of attempting to take her own life.
Anna Maria’s husband left her after being confronted by her brother about the abuses as he was ready to report them to the authorities. The love and support of her family was essential to her recovery process.
Anna Maria returned to the United States at the end of 2004.
After obtaining a divorce remarried in 2005 to a loving husband that had been instrumental in building up her self esteem.
Anna Maria’s life restoration and redemption process had a pivotal point that same year, when she turned to Yehovah, the Creator of the universe, surrendering to Him her entire life, putting her trust and faith in Him through in His only begotten Son: Messiah Yeshua.
Begotten again in the Spirit her life changed forever.
The first of a long series of miracle was the birth of her first child, Marc Anthony, at almost the age of 36!
Then the voice slowly but steadily was restored as well, better than ever.
At the end of 2009, Anna Maria was diagnosed with beginning stages of MS (multiple sclerosis).
When it seemed there was no solution, once again in a series of miraculous events, she received complete healing during an evening of music and worship with other believers in Messiah and Lord Yeshua. Anna Maria, right then and there, received the assurance of the miracle while singing the words: “I receive your voice; you tell me YAH that I am healed!”
The healing was confirmed in March 2010 by the astonished doctors!
This opened a new chapter in Anna Maria’s life: understanding of nutrition and alternative medicine and a desire to serve Yehovah deeply, following the steps of Yeshua the Messiah, digging deeper into the Hebrew roots of faith –Christianity- away from traditions of men, apart from religion.
Anna Maria retired in July 2012 from the scene of the crossover music (a blend of pop and opera).
She is now dedicating Yehovah giving talents and time to her new ministry: bringing awareness through music of the Scriptures –Bible-, both the Tanack (old covenant) and the
B’rit Chadasha (renewed covenant), to all those who have “ears to hear”.
Fans are amazed about her willingness to leave everything behind, and to many who ask “why?”, she answers with a parable found in Mattitiahu (Matthew) 13:44:
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
‘All the things of this world, its glory and power just fade away” she says; “My refuge is in Yehovah, He is my Migdal Oz, my strong tower, the only place to go to when everything else fails. I found my treasure in Him through Messiah Yeshua.
Now I am truly free: no more fear, no more pain.
I want to dedicate my life to a higher eternal purpose. I desire for everybody to know how to get there, to receive what I had freely received and how to live a brand new life follow the precepts and instructions given to us in the Torah of Yehovah, the same instructions Messiah Yeshua and others after him followed.
I believe this is the final reason of why I am still alive today and why the gift of voice had been restored unto me: to serve Yehovah and bring the Good News to the whole world.”
