iTunes is a staple in the world of entertainment. From new rap songs to Johnny Cash, it can all be found there. Among the numerous works available for purchase is that of exchange student Maggie Freire.
Each CD focuses on a different children’s show and is named accordingly. The CDs, “Noddy,” “Ruca” and “Cresce Connosco,” were released in 2006, 2006 and 2008 respectively.
The pair was noticed by their music teacher, Joana Pedro, and asked to participate in the CDs.
The release of the albums led to other fame for the Freires. Maggie was invited to appear on a children’s show as a result, and sung on a morning talk show.
Although she enjoys music, Freire is not planning her future around it. “I don’t want to pursue a career, but I’d like to continue with it,” Freire said.
Her rough future plans involve college in Portugal and an unknown career. “We’ll see what the future holds,” Freire said.
She has continued to participate in music here in the U.S. She is a member of the Wa-Hi concert Choir and performed in this year’s Conspiracy of Hope. She sang the Kings of Leon hit song “Use Somebody.”
From a little town in Portugal named Cascais, to top selling iTunes albums, Maggie Freire has come a long way. Her year in the U.S. is just one step in the journey of this ambitious girl.
