Manu Gavassi, 29, regretted being left out of the Latin Grammy nominees, which were announced yesterday. On a social network, the singer made an outburst about her visual album “Gracinha”, released last year, having been ignored at the awards. The artist said that “it was a difficult day”.
“I didn’t want to let this moment go unnoticed, because for me it didn’t. I took the time now to read your messages. I’m here seeing everything, reading every word, feeding myself on the energy of this beautiful dream that is ‘Cute’ through from the eyes of you, who understood the greatness. One movie, two albums, months and months, energy and heart invested. Today was not an easy day for my thinking and dreamy little head”, she began, in an Instagram post.
Then, she highlighted that this is not the first time that she has faced a barrier in her career, as she has gone through several adverse situations that have made her get to where she is.
“But then I remember that my entire career wasn’t either, it’s a succession of trials and I learned to understand this and use fuel to produce more and more art with purpose and light. Art that makes sense and that inspires strength, sensitivity and creativity . And a dash of humour, courtesy of the house,” he continued.
Manu believes that the album “Gracinha” may not have been understood because it is an innovative work. “Maybe it is a project really ahead of its time, of what is expected and what is consumed”, he continued.
She also highlighted how important the album was in her career and thanked her fans. “But it made me the artist I am today. Sometimes invisible but (almost) always innovative. I love you. I love who ‘Gracinha’ has made me and will still make me. Thank you for being here with me on each new journey. (The visual album ‘ Gracinha’ can be watched on Disney Plus)”, he concluded.
In the comments, the singer received a series of compliments and messages of affection from friends. “You are giant, Manu”, said Marina Ruy Barbosa. “Congratulations for your work!!!”, said Rafael Infante. “I cry whenever I see it”, commented Bruno Gagliasso. “‘Noiz’ knows what is ours, sister!”, stressed Lucas, lead singer of the band Fresno. “What a great project”, evaluated Lucas Lima.
