Singer and songwriter Giada Valenti was born and raised in Venice, Italy. In Europe, she was signed as a young singer with the record label BMG. When in 2005, a major record label in New York showed serious interest in her unique voice and her romantic music, she moved to the United States.
In the United States, she is most known for her stunning music special “From Venice With Love,” which aired nationally on PBS television. The airings of her PBS special made it possible for her to do concerts in Performing Arts Centers and Theaters all around the country. In November 2017, she debuted as a headliner in Las Vegas with a concert at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. In October 2018, she made her debut at Carnegie Hall in New York City, where she returned by popular demand in 2019.
For the past fifteen years, Giada, currently a resident of Las Vegas, has released her CDs "And I Love You So”, "Italian Signorina", and "My Lullaby", “From Venice With Love”, garnering rave reviews. She performed for 8 years straight on the Red Carpet of the Columbus Day Parade in New York City. She is a 12 times Grant recipient of the Sergio Franchi Music Foundation. In 2019 Andrea Bocelli asked her to sing with him at a concert benefitting his Foundation.
To stay in contact with her fans during COVID19, she started a live streaming video series on Facebook and YouTube, entitled “Giada Live”. This has become almost a television show with celebrity interviews, cooking demos, stories about Italy, and singing. In September 2021 she celebrated her 150th episode.
In November 2021 she released a single with a special interpretation of “Silent Night – Noche De Paz”. This is the first step of an ambitious Christmas project that includes a full album a television special and a concert tour.
