Tribe-In-Depth – The Laura and Madonna Links
For our readers from around the world that don’t know exactly who Italian singer Laura Pausini is here’s a short resume of what this artist to which Madonna gave one of her songs did and some Laura-Madonna links in this article from the Tribe-In-Depth series.
Laura Pausini began singing as a child with a debut album at the age of 12.
Her first big break was the 1993 San Remo (yes the one Madonna attended twice) festival where she won the contest with her now classic song La Solitudine. Many album followed and Laura conquered the Latin American public with Spanish versions of her most famous songs also having the chance to work with the best music producers.
One of her songs, a remixed version of Entre tu y mil mares was also included on the 2001 Maverick produced album compilation Platinum Rhythm. Madonna fans will remember that compilation because it included an unreleased remix of Madonna’s Music by Robbie Rivera.
Laura also had the chance to work with Patrick Leonard, Madonna’s long time friend and co-producer. In a Vh-1 interview she tells that Patrick wanted her to record the song Every Little Thing You Do like a rehearsal just piano and voice and added:
“I sang with the same microphone Madonna recorded Frozen with, and he told me that she used to put her chewing gum on the microphone while she sang. Because she’s Madonna and I want to have the same kind of luck, I did the same thing”.
Laura’s new single, Resta in Ascolto in Italian and Escucha Atento in Spanish, has also some Madonna reminiscences. Madonna fans will notice this, especially in the song intro which is very similar to the intro of Power of Goodbye.
