This is an honor well deserved for this icon of Latin music. There is a reason why they call him “The King” in Brazil. Roberto Carlos was in the first class of the Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievements Awards given out for the 1st time in 2004. This award will cement his legacy.
While thinking about that, memories came to my mind about the many songs I’ve enjoyed from this formidable artist, who I also remember for his peculiarity of always using an angle stand for his microphone. Roberto Carlos has recorded consistently an album a year since the early 60’s and continues well into the 2000’s. That is no small feat on itself!
However, it’s really his classic songs from the 70’s and 80’s that made the most impact in most of his fans. These happen to be the songs he mostly plays in live concerts these days.
I’m sharing with you my 10 favorite songs, by doing a Slideshare that talks a little bit about each song, followed by a YouTube of the song, most of them of Roberto Carlos live presentations.
