Welcome to Anna Tatangelo - America
We welcome all English-speaking international fans of Anna Tatangelo, one of Italy's brightest shining musical stars. Anna is an extremely talented young woman who at the age of 26 is well on the way to a fabulous career. Here you will find news articles, collections of photos and videos, song translations and many other tidbits of information about her. This website, our news blog and two forums are the primary English news sources for Anna on the web. We strive to enhance the popularity of this talented singer in the USA and among other English-speaking persons. She is a treasure to be shared by many!
Anna began her career professionally at the age of 15 after being the youngest singer ever to win first place in the “Youth” category at the famous Italian Sanremo Music Festival. This was followed by a first place win in 2006 in the “Women’s” category and a second place finish in the “Overall” category in 2008. During the last competition, she performed a duet of “Il Mio Amico” with Michael Bolton.
Anna has released five albums and eighteen single recordings. She has toured Australia, and performed at the prestigious Olympia of Paris. In the Fall of 2007, she toured the United States and Canada with singer/songwriter Gigi D’Alessio. She co-wrote two of the songs in her album “Mai Dire Mai,” with D’Alessio. These are “Averti Qui” and “Lo So Che Finira’.” A music video of “Lo So Che Finira’” was filmed while Anna was in San Francisco under the direction of Gaetano Morbioli. In her album, "Nel Mondo Delle Donne," Anna demonstrated her social consciousness by addressing important women's issues such as domestic violence, anorexia, and depression.
Anna took a leave of absence from her career in late 2009 until the summer of 2010 to give birth to her first child, Andrea, born March 31, 2010. From September through November, 2010, Anna was a judge on X-Factor in Italy. She competed in her sixth Sanremo Music Festival in February and took ninth place in this especially tough competition. Her fifth album, "Progetto B," was released on February 16, 2011.
Anna became a celebrity dance contestant on "Ballando con le Stelle" in January 2012 where she came in third at the finals. However, over the several weeks of competition, she was the highest scoring contestant.
Anna’s ability to sing with heartfelt emotion transcends any language barriers. She continues to grow in popularity throughout Italy and the world.
Below is a stunning performance of "Bastardo" from the February, 2011 Sanremo competition, which was also released as a single.

Anna's wonderful new album, "Progetto B." was released February 16, 2011. This is Anna's fifth album release. It is a diverse collection of musical selections, including rock and jazz, that nicely show Anna's versatility and growing musical talent!
This fan site was founded by an American who discovered Anna after a trip to Italy in 2006, and who dreams of Anna as the fabulous international star she is destined to become. Anna is a treasure that needs to shared; however, the language barrier is substantial for many English-speaking persons, especially in the USA. The "Anna Tatangelo America" website, newsblog, YouTube channel and Facebook page are efforts to dissolve this barrier and make Anna more accessible to the English-speaking world. ATA was created in April, 2008. We are the first English-speaking group to honor this talented lady.
