My grandmother Astrud Gilberto made this song for me, her name is Linda Sofia 🌸 She wanted my name to be Linda Sofia 🌼 Life is beautiful, as the song says, but I come to bring the sad news that my grandmother today became a stella✨🌟✨and is next to my grandfather João Gilberto. Astrud was the real girl who brought Ipanema’s bossa nova to the world. She was the pioneer and the best. At the age of 22 she gave voice to the English version of “Girl from Ipanema” and she achieved international fame. The song, a bossa nova anthem, has been enshrined as the second most played worldwide thanks largely to you. I love and will love Astrud forever and she has been the face and voice of bossa nova across much of the planet. Astrud will always be in our hearts🎶💖 and right now we have to celebrate Astrud.
