Classical crossover soprano Bárbara Padilla will be singing songs from her debut album, accompanied by Berklee students. After overcoming a recurring battle with stage-four cancer and becoming the first hispanic finalist on America's Got Talent, Padilla returns to the global music stage with a self-titled debut album recorded at Capitol Records (Nat King Cole/Frank Sinatra) and Abbey Road studios (Beatles) with the London Symphony Orchestra.
Padilla's CD was produced by Gregg Field and Jorge Calandrelli, both of whom have won many Grammy and Latin Grammy awards. Padilla is represented by Cristina Abaroa '91 and her CD is being released through Abaroa's independent record label Moon Moosic Records.
