International singing superstar and songwriter Milton Nascimento may have his roots in Brazil, but his songs have touched audiences all over the world.
His first break came when Elis Regina recorded one of his songs, "Canção do Sal," in 1966, and got him a spot on a popular Brazilian TV program. His career was launched.
Whatever he writes and sings about, be it the planet, ways of living, and loving and dying, his music carries an eternally optimistic spirit.
