Sergio Mendes    (0 Votes)
Producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Sergio Mendes is one of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time. His hit single, "Mas Que Nada," is the first Portuguese language song to ever hit Billboard's U.S. Pop chart and Mendes' signature mix of bossa nova and samba and distinctive pop instrumentation have ultimately come to define Brazilian music.

With a career spanning five decades, his enduring influence on the music industry continues to evolve. A three-time Grammy® Award winner, with three additional Grammy nominations, he has recorded more than 35 albums, with numerous gold and platinum albums among them. In 2012, following year, Mendes received an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Song for "Real in Rio" from the animated film Rio.

In the '80s, Mendes' popular single, "Never Gonna Let You Go" became a No. 1 Adult Contemporary hit and pop top-10 chart topper. In 1992 Mendes' record Brasileiro was awarded the Grammy® for Best World Music Album, and since then, Mendes has been honored with two Latin Grammy® awards for Best Brazilian Record, Timeless (2006) and Bom Tempo (2010) -- which was also nominated for a 2010 Grammy® award.

Mendes' most iconic album, Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2011, joining Bruce Springsteen's legendary Born in The U.S.A., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech, and the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St. in the class of historically significant recordings.

Mendes continues to tour worldwide and maintains his work as a film composer and producer, while also always working on and developing his own album projects.
