About Anita Fernandes:
Anita Fernandes, nicknamed by fans in Brazil as 'Australian Songbird' gracefully marries her soprano classical technique with her passion for Latin & World music.
At the age of 19 she moved to London and gained much experience as lead singer of a 9 piece disco funk band. Her talent was first discovered by renowned Australian country singer, 'James Blundell'.
