Rosanna Riverso’s career has given her the opportunity to open for legendary crooner Al Martino, perform for Academy Award winner Michael Douglas, sing with Sony Music recording artists The Priests, perform at Jimmy Kimmel's San Gennaro Festival in Hollywood, and host Telelatino (TLN) Network’s 5-part TV series tribute to Luciano Pavarotti…just to start!
Rosanna Riverso’s extraordinary vocal talents were recognized at the 2011 Hamilton Music Awards with a win of Best Female Vocalist of the Year, along with two nominations for her previous album Let There Be Peace. Her original song Notti Magiche and self-penned version of Ave Maria were picked up by major record label EMI Netherlands for a CD compilation Romantic Voices, putting Rosanna in the great company of international artists like Il Divo, Placido Domingo, Paul Potts, Susan Boyle, and Sarah Brightman.
Just in time for the holiday season, Rosanna's latest album "The Gift Of Christmas" features her beautiful and versatile voice, along with amazing guests like Matt Dusk, Mark Masri, Dominic Mancuso, the Sultans of String, the Faith Chorale, and legendary jazz trumpeter Guido Basso. A group of talented and award-winning musicians also contributed to the making of the album, including Brian Barlow, Glenn Morley, Kevin Laliberte, Drew Birston, Chendy Leon, Christabel Pinto, Scott Alexander, Michael Francis, and Brian Dickenson. Co-produced with Michael Haas, Juno award-winning engineer of Inception Sound Studios, this album is not your typical Holiday record, with all the same, old, tired arrangements, but it is a uniquely artistic masterpiece, with an eclectic collection of contemporary, jazz, ethereal, and worldly styles. It includes the beautiful ballads and sacred hymns that capture the essence of this holy time, but also incorporates just enough of the fun, upbeat numbers that will put you in the toe-tapping festive spirit! It is definitely an album that you will look forward to bringing out each Christmas season, year after year!
“Rosanna Riverso is poised to become the first female classical/crossover artist to truly
soar to the top of the industry worldwide. Her voice is incredible - warm and inviting – and
her own beautifully written compositions complement the classics she so deftly chooses,
weaving them together in a haunting web of beauty. Rosanna's live performances are
breathtaking and she is also the most professional artist with whom I have ever worked.”
