Brazilian singer-songwriter Priscilla made her US debut in 2014. The video for the first single “See U on the Dance Floor,” choreographed by acclaimed dancers Dionne “Loca De Jamaica” Renée (Shakira, Usher, Chris Brown, Sean Paul) and Lorenzo “Zagga Zo” Hanna (Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, MGK), is the perfect platform to showcase the latin beauty’s professional dance skills.
Priscilla vigorously involves herself in the creative process behind her music. Her ultra-pop sound married with infectious dance beats has listeners comparing her to the likes of Britney Spears.
Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Priscilla first discovered her passion for performance at the early age of 6. Even as a little girl, she always admired artists like Michael Jackson who were so gifted at dancing and singing. Having won her very first dance contest, while also holding the distinction of being the youngest dancer in the competition, Priscilla quickly became known as a local prodigy. She began performing regularly at the famous Brazilian theatre, Teatro Marília, and ultimately appeared on a number of Brazilian television shows.
Priscilla’s single-parent upbringing was not an easy one. So at age 17, she left her home country of Brazil and relocated to Portugal where she attended college and acquired a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. While in college, a requirement of her parents, Priscilla spent much of her off time rescuing animals and writing songs. But Portugal never felt right for the budding young starlet – she always knew there was only one place in the world where she could fully realize her dreams. So shortly after graduating, at age 22, she decided to move to Los Angeles in order to pursue her passion for music. And within a few day of her arrival, she had already been invited to sing on an album being recorded in a Hollywood studio. Her talent immediately caught the attention of the producer and resulted in her recording an EP of her own songs.
In addition to her love for music and dance, Priscilla is an ardent animal lover and adamant advocate of the animal rights organization PETA.
Priscilla currently resides in Los Angeles with her two dogs, Billy and Suzy.
