A bold first song for her debut album Butterfly, Sofia Evangelina start off singing Etta James’ “At Last”. This lets everyone know she means business. Her 10 song album is a cover of many great songs that we all love.
Sofia Evangelina has a beautiful, soulful voice. The second song “Wonderful World” is ok, it’s not my favorite. “All I Could Do Was Cry”, this is an amazing song, she sings it in her own style, so it doesn’t sound like Etta James or Beyonce.
This is a good cover album of some great blues and jazz songs. Sofia Evangelina makes them her own. Her rendition of “Feeling Good” is amazing on this album, she’s singing with her heart and soul on this song. “I Want You Back” and “Hello” are again beautiful renditions of these songs.
“Lean on Me” has always been a song I like, it’s one song that I can play the melody to on piano. This song you can feel the passion that Sofia has for music. It comes out in this song. She transfers her energy through the speakers to really get you feeling her energy.
My favorite song from Butterfly is “Fix You” and “I’ll Be There”. Her voice is outstanding on both of these songs! Sofia is amazing on these two songs, once you hear it, you will love both of them too. Check out the video below for “Fix You”.
The bonus is that you can sing along with each song. These are great hits and songs you can’t help but sing along to. They will even get you tapping your feet or even dancing.
About Sofia Evangelina
Sofia Evangelina is a budding teen singer-songwriter from Canada. With an abundance of confidence, astonishing natural talent, and a ‘powerhouse’ voice, Sofia exceeds all expectations of such a young artist. From the very early days, Sofia was a natural born performer full of boundless energy. Putting on her mom’s mascara and lipstick and cutting her scarves to create her own funky “designs”, she would spend hours performing in front of a mirror and later, entertaining random audiences.
“I have fallen for music since day one,” Sofia explained. “I can just remember hearing and seeing music everywhere as if it followed me. No matter where I went, I felt a rhythm and a beat”. I told my mother it paralyzed me – for the silly lack of better words at age 5.
Sofia’s interest in the performing arts expanded to Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar and of course, The Phantom of The Opera. She was so awestruck by the elongated vocals that she memorized each piece and her mom was compelled to hop a plane and take her to see the live performance in Las Vegas.
The Phantom of the Opera may have stirred her musical curiosity, but it was the larger-than-life sound and imagery of Burlesque that stole her heart forever and she has been belting out soulful tunes ever since.
Sofia, affectionately named Mini Christina by many, was inspired by Aguilera’s bold vocals as much as she was her commanding stage presence. Drawing inspiration from the vocal stylings of Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Lisa Fischer, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, and others, Sofia was on the way to carve her own place in the world
In an art-centered school in Calgary, she won an award entitled ‘the closest to the core of arts’ and enthralled the audience into repeat standing ovations.
The aspiring pop princess has won several National talent competition awards ever since, such as Canada’s National “Overall Talent Awards” at Talent INC 2014, Canada TeenFest, The Mics, and many others and has appeared at various festivals.
Interweaving elements of R&B, soul, gospel, and pop, her forthcoming debut album is a collection of covers created in collaboration with Bryant Olender, known for their work with Michael Bublé.
As a young teen and a world-class athlete traveling the globe, Sofia has a first-hand, deep understanding of the issues and the trends pertaining to youth culture. Through her music, Sofia hopes to inspire her fellow peers and encourage them to embrace their individuality, develop self-esteem, stand up for what is right and embrace their inner beauty. Working painstakingly on her vocals and mastering her craft with prominent Canadian songwriters, she is on an upward trajectory to becoming the voice of her generation.
