Singer-Songwriter Rebecca Barboza
Rebecca Barboza was born on the forth of December 1990, in Governador Valadares, Minas Gerais, Brazil. She began singing when she was eight years old at the church “Igreja Batista Memorial”, two blocks from where she used to live as a child. Her mom, Marta Barboza, would practice the songs with her, so she could give solo performances at the church. When Rebecca was 10 years old they moved to Jauru, Mato Grosso where she started singing at local events as well.
One day before her twelfth birthday Rebecca and her mother arrived in Amsterdam for the first time starting a brand-new life. Rebecca learnt the Dutch language in six months and during that time started singing at the church “Comunidade Cristã em Amsterdam”.
The church was doing very well at the time and the music ministry decided to record an album. Rebecca recorded the song “Nada Pode me calar” which became the main song of the album.
Rebecca wrote her first song at the age of 14 years old and have been developing her songwriting skills since then. In 2015, she started performing at the Brazilian soccer club “OSC” in Amsterdam. At that same time, she dropped out of college and began collaborating with artists from different parts of the world.
2018 has been a very important year for Rebecca, as she has released her latest singles “Blindfolded”, “Rescue me”, “You Can’t Deny” and “Goes on and on”.
