Fresh from winning another Latin GRAMMY® for Best Female Pop Vocal Album, International Pop Singer, Laura Pausini, appears on V-me's Estudio Billboard December 4 at 10:00pm(ET) with encore on December 9 at 8:00pm. During the interview, Laura Pausini reflects on her musical beginnings – singing at age 8 in a Bologna, Italy pizza restaurant with her bass-playing father and then letting her natural instinct for music take hold. "Music is an instinct. If you're lucky to have a key, you don't need anyone to tell you how to deliver a note."
On Estudio Billboard, Laura Pausini shares with host Leila Cobo some moments of triumph and frustration throughout her career. She talks about how she dealt with her sudden fame after performing in the San Remo Festival and how being thrust onto the world stage has changed her life. "Generally speaking, I find the sense of my life while I'm singing. I like to feel some notes breaking my voice and feel the energy in them. Singing is bellisimo."
In addition to performing selections from her GRAMMY winning album, Yo Canto, she also sings her first hit Soledad. "Soledad is a song that really talks about me. It's a true story about my adolescence and it reminds me of that time in my life."
