Wikipedia : This day (January 19, 1982), in São Paulo, Brazil, died Elis Regina, an important singer of Brazilian popular music .

Celebrating Elis Regina : And much like Janis Joplin’s, Regina’s tempestuous life sought its creative release on stage and in the studio. Her story is an amazing one and now it’s here for you to read at your leisure.

@allmusic : A perfectionist who was frequently dissatisfied, Regina drove herself and members of her band relentlessly, leading to her being dubbed Hurricane and Little Pepper by musicians and music journalists.

@last.fm : Her nickname was “Furacão” (“The Hurricane”), and also “Pimentinha” (“Little Pepper”). Elis Regina succumbed to a cocaine overdose in 1982, at the age of 36, having recorded dozens of top-selling records in her career
