In the ‘Batalhas’ (Battles) phase of The Voice Portugal, Rita, was up against the duo, Miguel & João. Rita gave a charming performance of the Labrinth song, Jealous. The gentle ballad was performed very elegantly with Rita’s clear vocals. The male duo of  Miguel & João sang Luar do Sertão (Hinterlands Moonlight), which is a popular Brazilian song.

After a difficult choice, the mentor, Aurea, decided to put Miguel & João through to the next round.

Rita, who is only 15 years old, can be proud of her performances on The Voice Portugal. Although the journey may have ended, this is only the beginning. Rita has the capability of going far in the music business, not just in Portugal, but internationally.
