Sara Dall’Olio has released her first official single. It is a cover of the famous masterpiece of a song, Caruso, made famous by artists like Lara Fabian. The track is from the forthcoming debut album by Sara due to be released in early 2021.

Sara truly deserves this success after winning many top prizes and awards representing Italy at international music festivals around the world. The album will be called ‘Debut’ and will be produced by David Serero, the famous baritone opera singer, producer and actor. Sara met with David at the Adagio Festival in Odessa, Ukraine in 2019. He was very impressed by Sara and her voice and decided to produce her first album.

Her second single has already been decided and it will be an Italian cover of the Whitney Houston classic, I Have Nothing called Non Ho Niente. The ‘Debut’ album will feature cover versions of Italian and American standards and evergreens which will showcase Sara’s powerful and crystal clear vocals. Sara was set to record the album in New York, where David Serero’s studios are based. However, due to the current world health situation the instrumental backing tracks were recorded there and Sara recorded her vocals in Italy at the Cosascuola Recording Studio.

Sara has come a long way since representing San Marino at the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest as a member of The Peppermints.

Congratulations to Sara and we are sure we will be hearing a lot more of Sara in the future. This is just the beginning of her journey!
