Take a Number: Maria Rita and "Agôra Só Falta Você"

Today's random tune is titled Agôra Só Falta Você. It is sung by Brazilian artist Maria Rita, who is the daughter of the great Brazilian artist Elis Regina. She began her singing career at age 24 and released her first album in 2003 with the first cut being a symbolic nod to her mother and her mother's generation of musicians. It was a platinum success worldwide and made her an international star. She is known for her own jazzy vocal style - she considers Ella Fitzgerald an influence. Agôra Só Falta Você can be found on Maria Rita's eponymous first album (2003).
