Toronto born Classical Crossover Soprano, Alessandra Paonessa, joined the team of Hope for Hearts since the very beginning, performing last year during the first annual Hope for Hearts Gala event.
“Having experienced my sister saved from life threatening illness, thanks to the technology and breakthroughs in recent years she is alive today. I am a strong supporter of scientific research and want to be a part of giving the same opportunity my sister had to others” says Alessandra, “I am happy to be an ambassador for Hope for Hearts.”
Since the release of her debut album Remembering Heaven in November 2014, Alessandra Paonessas’ career has been soaring to new heights and there is no looking back for this singer who was the recipient of 7 recording awards for her album this year alone. Remembering Heaven has aired on radio stations around the world including Taiwan, Australia, Greece,
South Africa, Netherlands, and all across North and South America. The award winning album is an international collaboration with world renowned British composer, Chris Broom and features 8 of his original works accompanied by full orchestra which were described in a recent review by Fanfare Magazine as “ …unapologetically romantic, inviting its listeners into an old-fashioned realm of lyrical beauty , serenity and inspiration.” (Fanfare Magazine 2015 – Clara Maria Verdino – Sullwold)
Alessandra’s voice has been described as “…a sweet, pure lyric soprano with firm intonation, admirable agility and a lush, rounded tone.” (Fanfare Magazine 2015 – Clara Maria Verdino – Sullwold) which is why it comes as no surprise her album has received international acclaim from around the world including ‘Best Classical Album’ in the Toronto Independent Music Awards, the Global Music Awards, ‘Best Classical Recording’, ‘Best Female Classical Artist’ in the Indi Music Channel Radio Awards and even made her red carpet debut at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards last year in Los Angeles California where she won ‘Best Female Vocal Performance’ for her recording of Dolce Vento.
Alessandra has performed around the globe including North America and the Netherlands. In April 2016, she returned to the United Kingdom to join four-piece singing sensation G4, as seen on Britain’s The X Factor. Alessandra has been invited as a guest soprano on G4’s ‘Back For Good Tour’.
