She portrays authenticity and character. She’s an innovative and eloquent creator whose art is driven by her never-ending desire to make a difference in the world.
SPIRIT OF DIVERSITY
The Brazilian-born, LA based singer, song-writer and audio-visual creator is making positive waves.
Devoted to arts from a young age, Ladi Anne started her international career at age 16, when invited to participate in an audio-visual collaboration with Belgium sensation Ian Thomas, for the hit song “Money”, featuring rapper Quess Kross. The collaboration was sponsored by Mark Schaffel – Michael Jackson’s former manager – and shot in Los Angeles, California. Ladi Anne, who was the leading piece for the success of this project, worked on scene with Brigitte Derks, Mark Schaffel and Debby Rowe (Michael Jackson’s ex wife). The music-video aired on all of the biggest television networks in South America – Rede Globo, SBT, Rede TV and TV Record.
In 2013 Ladi created her own visual project along with two other members: LA Connection – a web-show sponsored by Brazilian teen magazine Yes Teen. The series counted with the participation of Selena Gomez, Ed Sheeran, Ne-Yo, Zendaya, Kelly Osbourne, Fifth-Harmony, One Direction and Miley Cyrus, who later invited the members of the show to appear in her documentary – Miley: The Movement, by MTV.
The show became so popular that Ladi was featured and interviewed by TMZ, E! Entertainment Television, Perez Hilton and Star Magaizne.
In 2015 Ladi Anne joined singer Lia Farrington in a duo, song-writing, singing and creating audio-visual content. The pair played sold out shows in some of the most famous venues of Los Angeles, such as House Of Blues, Room 5 and The Witzend. For two music videos they collaborated with renowned guitar player Mateus Asato, who’s currently touring the world with Tori Kelly and Jessie J. The duo Ladi and Lia have also teamed up with Keep Your Soul Records for another audio-visual collaboration “Lay Me Down Cover by Lia Farrington & Ladi Anne”, distributed on Itunes, Spotify and other digital stores.
In 2016 Ladi Anne was selected to sing on the official Olympics theme song that aired on worldwide television in July 2016. In May 2017, the song won a Sports Emmy award for Best Musical Direction. Soon after that rewarding experience, Ladi graduated from Los Angeles Film School at the top of her class with a “Hall of Fame” award in Audio Engineering.
Immediately after graduating, Ladi started working with celebrities like Alec Baldwin and the cast of Orange is the New Black, as a sound engineer, in between a busy schedule of posing for magazines and writing her own songs.
After a year of creating quality audio work for other artists, Ladi is now combining all her talents into one special project: a series of 10 music videos. Each video is about a different humanitarian cause, and 100% of the profits are being donated to the leading non-profit dedicated to the specific cause. The songs are being recorded in the renowned 4th Street Recording studio, former home for The Beach Boys.
The first video of the series, Villas, is an emotion-binding, raw and authentic piano piece written by Ladi as a tribute to her late father. The video is a collaboration with dancer Marion Crampe, who was recently featured on the Ellen Degeneres Show for her out-of-the-norm talent. The two extraordinary women joined their power in a majestic collaboration with a clear message of self-healing, self-realization and self-alignment, who got the world speechless after its release in October 2017.
All of the funds earned with the online sales of “Villas” are being donated to Mind Leaps, a organization that creates dance and educational programs for street children and out-of-school youth in post-conflict and developing countries.
