After several times invited to come to Brazil, this time it worked and Shania Twain arrives in the country in August. The country diva will be the main attraction of the Barretos Peon Festival, a traditional rodeo event that takes place every year in the interior city of São Paulo. There is a possibility that she may also perform in other venues, but this is still to be confirmed.
The 63rd edition of the Barretos festival takes place August 16-26. The date of Shania's show will be announced in the coming days, as well as the sale of tickets.
Despite being one of the country's divas in the US, Shania Twain is Canadian. At age 52, Eilleen Regina Edwards, the singer's real name, had one more reason to agree to do at least one show in Brazil. The coming show is part of the world tour that promotes "Now", her most recent album, which was released last year.
With a successful career that began 25 years ago, Shania Twain became known in Brazil in the late 1990s, especially with the song "You're Still the One." Other hits she recorded are "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!", "From This Moment On" and "Don't Be Stupid."
She also participated in some duets, like "Endless Love", that she recorded with the singer Lionel Richie; and "White Christmas," opposite Michael Bublé.
Shania was married for 14 years to Robert John "Mutt" Lange, a sought-after rock record producer who worked with bands like AC / DC and Def Leppard. With him, she had a son, Eja D'Angelo, now 16 years old.
In 2011, the singer wanted to bring a bit of her personal life to the public, and released an autobiography (entitled "From This Moment On") and a documentary ("Why Not? With Shania Twain").
In 2012, the artist kicked off a 2-year show residency in Las Vegas.
