Giusy Ferreri will entertain the general public of the evening of September 8th. In what is one of the last stops of the long Girotondo Live tour, the unmistakable voice of the star of the Italian song will saturate the air of a packed Crowning Square.
The concert of September 8th has been the worthy end of a great day of celebration for several years now. The women and men who make up the Committee Fèsta Manna "Fidali 1974" (that is the forty-four year old class of Luogosanto which organizes this year's party) worked hard for twelve months organizing many cultural events for free and tourism that allowed him to set aside a treasure chest with which to carry out the main events of the Fèsta Manna di Gaddura and in particular the concertone of September 8th. The Committee has chosen the great Italian singer Giusy Ferreri, on tour since May with her Girotondo Live, to set the square on fire with her inimitable full and warm voice. The concert is free because this is the gift that the Committee gives to the Gallura people, to vacationers and fellow citizens of the area.
Giuseppa Gaetana Ferreri was born in Palermo on April 18, 1979, but soon the family moved to the province of Milan. He began playing the piano at the age of fourteen, also studying autodidact guitar and singing. After some experiences in some cover bands, in 2002 he signed the song Want to be with the group Allstate51. Three years later, in 2005 he published under the stage name Gaetana a single with the BMG entitled The party. In 2008 he participated in the auditions for the first Italian edition of X Factor, a program through which he became known to the public thanks to the song Never forget me, written by Roberto Casalino and Tiziano Ferro. Just this song - which is followed by a self-titled EP released in June 2008 - allows her to achieve success, occupying the top of the iTunes charts for several weeks. In August Giusy starts recording the new album of unpublished works, scheduled for October of the same year. In November 2009 the first album Gaetana is released, again with the help of Tiziano Ferro. In 2009 he published Photographs, a CD composed of eleven covers, among which the piece by Rino Gaetano stands out But the sky is always bluer and the most recent cover Ciao amore ciao, already famous piece by Luigi Tenco; the song is also recorded in the form of a virtual duet with the singer, with the approval of the Tenco family. After several collaborations (with Neri per Caso and Marracash), at the end of December 2010 the participation in the Sanremo Festival 2011 is announced, where it is competing in the Big section with the song Il mare immenso. After a period of silence, Ferreri returns to Sanremo in 2014, where he is chosen as a competitor in the Big section: he is competing with the songs Love owns the good and I'll take you to dinner with me and thanks to the latter ends ninth in the standings. In March, the fourth album L’attesa was released, recorded between Los Angeles, in the studios of Linda Perry, London and Italy. The singer is the author of nine of her twelve songs. It was relaunched in 2015 by the success of Rome-Bangkok, the duet with Baby K became the summer hit. At the end of the year his participation in the 2017 Sanremo Festival is announced, in the Big section, where he is competing with Fatally evil. The song is contained in Girotondo, new unreleased album that comes out a few weeks after the Festival and contains other hits like Parties now and Love haunts me. The year ends with the regular guest singer of the cast of the seventeenth edition of the talent show Amici di Maria De Filippi as a singing teacher.
In 2018 he is a guest at the 68th Sanremo Festival. From May onwards it is occupied with the Girotondo Live Tour. (Text taken from rockol.it and wikipedia.org)
