1. Brazilian Singers - Enjoy 10 Sara Bentes New Videos

My personal friend, Sara Bentes, allowed me to upload 10 of here songs to YouTube, with lyrics in Portuguese. To check the lyrics in English or Spanish, visit 'Brazilian Friends' and click on the Google Translator.

If you want to have her songs in PDF, MP3 and improve your Portuguese wherever you are, take a look at her songbook. Here is the link:

Whenever you grab her collection, feel free to give it as a Christmas gift to any Portuguese learner! Sara is going to receive 50% of the payments, and the other 50% will be used to record our Portuguese Lessons and Portuguese Phrases! ;-)

Sara is a Brazilian singer who's got international prizes. One of them was the 'Arts in Action' in 2003, by VSA arts. VSA arts is an international nonprofit organization founded 35 years ago by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith to create a society where people with disabilities learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts.
