Wikipedia : This day (March 30, 1940), in Bahia, Brazil, is born Astrud Gilberto, a Brazilian samba and bossa nova singer.

Official Site : Astrud’s style has been a strong influence in contemporary music. Many artists have revealed the fact that they have been inspired by her musical style, among them: Basia (who recorded a tribute to Astrud, a song named Astrud), Sade, Sinéad O’Connor, Michael Franks, Pat Metheney, and Suzanne Vega.

@allmusic : The honey-toned chanteuse on the surprise Brazilian crossover hit The Girl From Ipanema, Astrud Gilberto parlayed her previously unscheduled appearance (and professional singing debut) on the song into a lengthy career that resulted in nearly a dozen albums for Verve and a successful performing career that lasted into the ’90s.

@last.fm : In her mid-teens, she became part of (her own words) a “musical clan” when she met João Gilberto, whom she described as the clan’s musical “guru”. She married him a few months later, in 1959.
