He won Brazil but he does not forget his origins and the obstacles he has overcome in 20 years. It was not easy to get here and the first fee he received from his work in music was spent reflecting on his great passion.
“We go through everyone, see? But like I said, I love art, music, there’s no way I could have another life. So that’s what I was born for and what makes me feel good. It will sound trite… but I bought a stereo! can you believe it With the hardearned money I made, I managed to buy one that had two speakers, the big ones, and that came with a CD player! Twenty years ago! That it was a great luxury and it guaranteed my enjoyment and the sound in the treble at home [risos].”

Mom and TH on stage together
In the special, Thiaguinho and his mother Glória Maria sing together for the first time on television and present “Fascination”, accompanied only by piano. The singer’s parents have always supported their son in achieving his goals. Gloria has always had music in her life. Thiaguinho accompanied his mother to the hymn rehearsals of a group she led that sang during mass. João Barbosa, his father, was no different: he became a radio announcer.
“My parents always showed me a successful path no matter what I would choose for my life and I grew up seeing them all the time outside the home, looking for a better and dignified life for me and my sister, and that has served me a lot of inspiration. Whenever my father committed to something, it was delivered in a way. He’s been the leader everywhere I’ve gone and that’s what made me grow up with this strong reference at home, it’s my inspiration to never give up. reveals Thiaguinho.
